Ranking Is Evil

IT Project Manager (Current Employee) Houston, TX

ProsGood pay & benefits.
Depending on assignment, good co-workers.

ConsForced ranking process, completely depends on "who you know."
Black-box job assignment process - attempting to apply directly for a position is a no-no.
Management gives lipservice to work/life balance, but only promotes extended seat-warmers. Therefore, high hours = high performance (a strict performance comparison is apparently just too difficult).
"Nanny" safety policies - must hold handrails on stairs, etc.

Advice to Senior ManagementLose the ranking system. At best, it ensures the best butt-kissers get promoted. At worst, it encourages a short-sighted culture, since prior years are ignored. This is why there are so many projects that look good on paper, but afterwards turn out to be useless, or worse. Even pro-ranking experts seem to agree that it only works for a couple of years.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
