Great intentions, unclear direction.

ProsI work with extremely gifted individuals and there are few restrictions on the things departmentally I get to learn. That's about it.

ConsLimited growth, overambitious leadership team that ignores the urgency of compliance, looks to phase out "cumbersome" processes, while trying to enforce abstract ideals. Little room for growth and advancement. Too great a focus on technical experts, ignoring the core groups such as Accounting and Finance.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease note that your core staff, such as Accounting, Contracts, Procurement and Benefits *need* to be reinforced. Consider creating a compliance and training department instead of abstract goals such as becoming a "learning organization." Fix the wheel before driving. Please stop coupling an inordinate number of initiatives atop already overwhelming daily responsibilities. Understand all sides, and that the organization could run much more smoothly if we grounded ourselves instead of trying to be overly abstract. EG. PPRD: useless to a person whose base work culture does not permit "outstanding" action. Stop discussing accountability when we have no "ownership" of any piece of our processes. Reward all equally. Consider returning to Tuition Assistance/Reimbursement. Avoid discussing the topic of religion at work. Start enforcing workplace equality---those at the top should respect those at the bottom. Try and understand a process before attempting to fix it.

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