Professional site lacks professionalism on the inside

Lead Generation Associate (Former Employee) Sausalito, CA

Pros- Fresh Fruit Monday, Bagel Wednesday, and Donut Friday
- Flexible work hours/ lunch breaks
- Vibrant atmosphere w/ a bright future (inside jokes among among established employees, youthful/fun environment- in Sales/Marketing at least)

Cons- I essentially had to fire myself. My supervisor decided to limit the tasks that I performed to the point that I questioned my status as an employee and initiated a meeting to discuss (Tuesday). Apparently the decision to let me go was made the previous Thursday unbeknownst to me.

- In this meeting it was stated that I was probably going to be let go Friday (my birthday) if I hadn't taken the steps to open communication about my job status sooner.

- I was let go b/c I do not possess technical skills that were not listed on the job posting, or mentioned in the interview- and was not given the option to learn these skills on my own.

- A LOT of sedentary sitting and alienating/lonely if you don't have rapport est. with co-workers

Advice to Senior Management- Improve communication: employees should know where they stand, or be told how to fix an error before being terminated.

- Promote personability AND professionalism further (i.e. I scheduled a few meetings that my supervisor did not go through with, so I was left to apologize to the ignored potential partners (emails read "___ never called me like we discussed. " and had to reschedule appointments.)

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