Great salary and benefits in a passive-agressive culture

Pros

Overall good benefits and intelligent people to work with. Executive team is top-notch and extremely focused - which is great for bonuses, stock and long term growth.

Cons

Middle management from VPs down is very passive-aggressive creating a fearful, caustic environment.
Major disappointment when the execs are candid and open.
Great company, great potential. Yet it has become just a another company to work for insted of a Great Place to Work. Too bad, what a waste.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The Big Opportunity has motivated employees with a great sense of urgency, yet it has also smothered the candid and creative energies of workers with fear. VPs and Managers are encouraged to get rid of anyone they don't like under the guise of cutting the low performers or just take an easy route by eliminating the position in a restructure - not the work of course, which just gets redistributed to others.
Change is good - motivating hard workers is better than threatening them and cutting individuals one at a time - all while billboards are posted that the company is hiring.
