Political Place with Pretentious People

Business Leader (Former Employee)

ProsSome smart and intelligent people in products and solutions hired in the recent year. Talent attracts talent. I don't usually like HR but have positive experiences with a very professional HR partner - respectful, solutions-oriented, smart and clearly an endangered specimen.

ConsPolitical and full of unthinkable nonsense e.g. senior managers who watch what time you come in and make a fuss to others, not to you directly. Legal Department run by prescriptive and dogmatic stiffs who take joy in misfortunes and mistakes of employees. A pretty judgmental culture. Managers who do not develop their teams caring only for their own skins.

Advice to Senior ManagementLead by example. Talk is cheap and boring. Recognize those who truly make a difference and make it hard for those who simply make noises to shield their own incapabilities. Be mindful of what talented people want and need at work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It's a good place to work if you can deal with the politics.
