Biggest Misstep in My Career

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsCorporate office is now in downtown Chicago.

ConsThis is a place where work ethic comes to die. There is no drive, ambition, motivation or pride at this place. There is no clear communication. In fact the way to be a successful middle manager here is to not make a single decision, tell your team you are there to support them and then not do a single thing. You won't be held accountable to anything. If you fake excitement and happiness to everything management says you will automatically be viewed as someone with a chance at "greater opportunities." For most people you will not be challenged, you will just operate on auto pilot and hope that your life outside this awful place is fulfilling enough to make this job not matter.

Advice to Senior ManagementMotivate your team. Give any of us a reason to stay.

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