Exec Management creates caste system

Marketing (Current Employee)
Herndon, VA

Prosflexibility in hours
educational based company mission
great people
good location

Consemployees were told no raises for the past 2 years, but executive mgmt team got LARGE raises.
Company does not value or promote any sort of life balance or benefits geared towards life balance
No importance put on career development or formal review process
Growth of business has caused major disorganization
Lack of any sort of Corporate Communications strategy
leader does not invoke inspiration or rapport with employees
Promotion opps and praise are based on hours put into your job, not actual performance of your job
Key Leaders do not have kids and lack empathy for core customer - parent.


Advice to Senior Managementread above about the cons and focus on improving each one of them so that employees don't feel that they are just a number with no value. Giving yourselves raises while telling the rest that they are lucky to have jobs is not good leadership and does nothing to instill loyalty and inspirational work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
