Too many problems in IT

SAP IT Contractor (Former Employee)
Milpitas, CA

ProsI had a similar negative experience to an IT colleague below. I worked as a contractor on the same CRM upgrade project and was faced with really poor IT managers. They were inept, aggressive, self serving and constantly belittled us. One lady in particular was really poor despite being there for years. The only way we could get our job done was after 5pm

ConsConfrontational working atmosphere which is perpetuated by angry lower level managers

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are too many negative reviews here and elsewhere that you must realize there is a serious problem. I hear it's been this way for years and it's the same employees who exhibit such negative, controlling behavior. But since they've been here for so long, it's treated as normal. Trust me, this is not normal

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