Lack of Leadership. self-focused, bonus-motivated people in charge

Business Development (Current Employee) Orlando, FL

Prossalary, benefits, working level people below the "VP-bonus" level. there's great collaboration amongst the working level folks that just want to get the job done. at the executive level, it breaks down - REALLY QUICKLY.

Consseems like middle-senior management is SELF-FOCUSED - their bonuses. they treat people under them like plow mules, no respect. LOTS OF HOURS.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to learn LEADERSHIP from a military person. or better yet - just put the military people in charge. Maybe realize the competition is OUTSIDE the castle walls. start cooperating better internally. quit focusing on yourself and your bonus. get a mission or objective BIGGER THAN YOURSELF. Maybe like your people. LEADERSHIP is about EMPOWERING people - creating a positive work environment where people might actually WANT to work long hours - make them feel part of the solution. I know, it's all too simple and "motherhood" for you to buy-in.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
