Exasperated

Senior Manager (Current Employee) Frederick, MD

ProsGood products. Good reputation. Hard working, talented operations and support teams.

ConsPoor management. Poor communication. Very political (mucho brown nosing required to get ahead). Frequent re-orgs/layoffs with resulting low personnel morale and folks carrying more duties (with no additional comp).

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open. Stop making advancement a zero sum exercise.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
