Secrecy overwhelms good sense

Training (Current Employee)

ProsSome good, a few great, managers. Some really great co-workers. Some opportunity to move up, some really smart people found in odd corners of company.

ConsEverything is a secret. Too many decisions made in vacuum without input from folks with useful information because of the secrecy. Rush decision. Favoritism not skill too often behind hiring in senior levels. Too many opportunities only in Dallas. So if you live in Dallas, great, but if not, many key jobs being moved there, and not as much interesting work left in Denver or Minn. The secrecy issues cannot be overstated. Communication between global divisions, is improving, but it's not enough yet

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open. More communication, not less, about decisions both made and in negotiations. Also, do we really need that many senior managers? We lay off the folks at the bottom of the totem pole, and hire at the top, but haven't seen any real improvements in strategy or performance that justify the huge upper management hires in Dallas.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
