Avoid working here

Senior Director (Current Employee) Rockville, MD

ProsCompensation can be good if you stay with the company over a longer period. Otherwise few come to mind.

ConsImpatient, aggressive management. Employees expected to work 24/7. If you play the political game well you will get promoted regardless of talent. Senior management often deals with complex situations unprofessionally with anger and tantrums. Timelines are always being shortened to the point of being completely unrealistic and unachievable. A lot of people reach VP and SVP level who really shouldn't. Project management run things completely - even if you are functional head they will overrule you!

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more realistic with timelines and have a better system in place when it comes to selecting senior management. If most of the company can identify the really bad senior executives, why is the C-level so blind to this? Also, be more realistic with investors regarding opportunities and time lines. Perhaps then the share price might go up, rather than the always repeating pattern of over-promising yet never delivering.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
