Current Employee - An Employee Who Interacted With Senior Management Daily in Herndon, VA

I have been working at National Student Clearinghouse full-time (more than a year)

Pros

- Friendly employees (non-management)
- Small company
- Great product(s) and cause

Cons

- Poor senior level management
- Little to no development
- Gossip
- Power hungry COO who will stop at nothing to get what she wants, despite the impact on others
- No HR department that truly cares

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Grow up. Your company is great in the services it provides to higher education, however senior level managers, particularly the COO, has caused the morale of the company to slide down a never ending hill. You cannot manage employees with an iron fist. You cannot have employees constantly looking over their shoulder in fear of doing something wrong. This company can achieve greatness from an employee standpoint, but as long as certain senior leaders are still there and the CEO turns a blind eye to it, nothing will change. The Board of Directors and CEO should be ashamed of themselves for letting certain leaders in place.
