Chaotic work culture

Technical (Former Employee)

ProsCompensation, health benefits are more than fair. Personal drive, aggression is usually rewarded. As long as you give management what they need, you can get a lot of freedom in your job.

ConsAbsolutely no planning. Quick and dirty patch-work over permanent fix is encouraged by management. Even technical function is led with shot-sighted mentality. A few powerful people run the place in a very autocratic manner. You need to have a god-father to climb the ladder. The work culture doesn't always encourage collaborative efforts towards common goal.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement could listen to her technical staff, at least in technical matters.

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