Heading no where fast

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

ProsCasual dress code, alternate work schedule (every other Friday off), if you like fast food, in house Jack in the Box. Two floating holidays additional time off (but depends on your start date whether you are entitled to both the first year)

ConsThey preach FEAST (Fun, Excellence, Agility, ...) but there is no love or fun there. Instead of letting employees do their job always trying to force being happy and Fun. There is a cloud of tension and stress that hangs in the air. Most offices have no windows in the CSC building. Top heavy management and most of them are micro managers. You need to be a Yes person or you will quickly be singled out and then out. Just not a feeling of being comfortable working there. Move is toward outsourcing. Very little to none advancement. NO vacation the first year.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet some of the upper and middle management go. Rethink company focus. Current focus is identical to the one they tried 5 years ago. Yes 18-35 do eat more fast food, but the 35+ age group is larger and they also eat fast food. Remember that families in all age groups tend to have kids and they take them to eat. Those kids tend to go back to those places as they get older and yes they have kids which they would bring back as well and the cycle repeats. But alas, Jack does not have any items for kids or anything healthy. But it really does come down to management and the overall feeling while working there.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
