It's not very motivating but it pays the rent

Disapproves of CEO

Pros

They generally do not ask for or require overtime on a regular basis. Just do your job well enough and you will be OK

Cons

Corporate security and political posturing is stifling and makes it painful to be as productive as you would like to be

Advice to Management

You should put a little bit of trust in your employees, learn to communicate, and try to provide a reason for employees to be more motivated.

    Pros

    I was given a good position and good pay (even though it was through a temp agency), and the job title was above what I was expecting.

    Cons

    The people are unfriendly to newcomers, and the working environment is just depressing. People really don't like their jobs and there's a high turnover rate. Even though everyone's hours are supposedly 9-5, people were late all the time and left early. My first day, no one knew that I was starting, and one person thought I was just interviewing. My boss had a family emergency but no one bothered to tell me so I was just sitting around all day. The rest of the team was rude and unwelcoming, and they feigned interest only to take advantage of me later. When I shared my ideas with an individual, they took credit for them at the next staff meeting. Overall, it's just an unhappy and toxic place.

    Advice to Management

    Do a thorough sweep of the departments and weed out everybody that causes such a negative atmosphere.
