One bad move

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsGreat benefits, some good people, good pay. The company tried to improve but the dysfunction is so deep their efforts were in vane. Direct Managers wanted to improve - and really went out on a limb when issues presented. However, the process stopped there.

ConsHorrible management, total dysfunction, incredibly frustrating. Unclear expectations, bonus goals drove annual plans, and created unrealistic expectations for employees. No communication within departments. No support system. Lots of negativity. Promotions of people who were not qualified. No training. No support. Lots of hires and layoffs.

Advice to Senior ManagementCompany leadership needs a complete overhaul. Good people have come and gone and you missed out on the opportunity to make a difference. Titanic?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
