Informatics executives are out of control

Research Informatics (Current Employee)

ProsGood location with nice views. Great benefits and perks. Salary is decent as well although stock options not performing.

ConsInformatics senior executives do not really listen and do not manage their staff due to lack of professionalism and it is reflected on everyone downstream several levels below.

only in it for themselves and managing up by putting on a different face so to look good is not a very good way to run IT. Staff productivity, morale, motivation and attitudes are really poor across all Informatics areas due to extraordinarily bad management. Unnecessary stress, politics and pressure.

It is true that most of the folks in senior roles are in some shape or form "connected" to CIO and SVP and hired from outside - clear sign that there is no internal staff development to move up. Forest has a lot of good talent that is not being utilized effectively.

Advice to Senior ManagementAppoint new SVP Corporate Informatics and direct reports.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
