Morally bankrupt

OpsMgr (Former Employee)
Greensboro, NC

ProsReally, the only aspect I liked at FAS was the handful of decent employees. But, that was the 5%. Definitely not enough to keep me.

ConsOMG...too many to list. Employee to employee violence. Unsafe conditions. I reported into an employer who does not empower the Management team. I was constantly undermined and never awarded the authority/autonomy to make this a great place to work. We never gave any employees a raise. We dangled FT employment as a carrot to get "more" out of employees but rarely rewarded. Top performers were given more hours, but still at a low pay rate. The supervisory staff were assigned based on "best available option" rather than actually seeking out the most qualified employees. I have never been associated with a Company so morally deplorable. I truly wish I had NEVER accepted this position.

Advice to Senior ManagementReally, I could give tons of advice. But, FAS is very clear that they are not interested.

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