    Pros

    The People are the best part of the company as are most. The culture is very much about status quo. Its increasingly bureaucratic.

    Cons

    To much emphasis on profits / cash flow.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like your shareholders


  2. Management needs reorganized by peer reviews

    Pros

    Temporary employees are given a lot of responsibility with very little supervision. This is incredibly invigorating because I can produce projects endlessly with this trust and what felt like appreciation. As a temp to hire, I could work from home occasionally.

    Cons

    As soon as I was asked to be a salaried FTE with benefits, all that stopped. Was given meager projects and for weeks had to train myself how to create a special type of document just to keep busy. Management was worried I would make them look bad because I had innovative ideas. So the many different managers I worked with felt threatened and put a halt to all work with meaning. Now I get paid a lot to keep my mouth shut. I did mention to the program manager about the lack of support and possible process hiccups and instead of using that constructively, was ostracized. The program, project, contract managers need to be evaluated by their subordinate peers in order to keep highly productive, prosperous, and fresh ideas. Fearing a peer review would possibly halt the management huttle and start expanding ideas

    Advice to Management

    Take into consideration what the team members tell you in confidence rather than flying off the handle.
