Over ambitious goals but no systems or staff in place to get there

Pros

Some really good people with enthusiasm and drive.

Cons

Mostly contract personnel on the project team. Not consistent with the company message of "team"
Subordinate admin personnel have undue influence over senior management who should know better
Management constantly changes the goalposts... there is no way to meet previously agreed goals
Treatment of contract employees is deplorable - 2nd. class citizen at best

Advice to Management

Get your act together. Many good people have left / will go if you let the level of incompetence of your senior staff go unchecked

    Pros

    A few employees try to help you learn your job.

    Cons

    Senior management only cares about themselves and not their support employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people the way you want to be treated. Another employee let go 2 weeks later and he got 2 weeks severance and I didn't.

    Challenging work environment but unappreciative and elitist senior management.

    Pros

    Peers are good people. Business if exciting and new. Growth of company. Early culture was incredible.

    Cons

    Safety and environmental performance is horrible. New plants that look like they were built 20 years ago. Lip service to quality and environment. Good safety systems but poor plant design leading to issue with dust. Current culture reminds me of a slave ship. Daily beatings until moral improves. Production above all else no matter what they say. Words and deeds mismatch.

    Advice to Management

    You are out of touch with what is happening at your plants. The accountants, finance teams are destroying value nearly as fast as moral. A culture of fear driven by a management team all kissing up to senior management. CEO is an insincere sociopath. He will probably do great things for the company but at the expense of the environment and the people.
