Beware of the moralistic hypocrisy of the culture

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Toledo, OH

ProsCreativity-inspiring facilities
Solid people at certain levels of the organization
Desire to win (although their industrial sector is forever tied to housing's whims)

ConsOver-the-top moralistic. Every word said by everyone is put under the microscope
Too much behind-the-back chatter about everyone and not enough open-and-honest engagement
Resources are constrained, though business goals over-reaching (hence fundamentally flawed)
Dominating dismissiveness to the not-invented-here mind set
Near zero ethnic diversity - and programs initiated are mostly sugar-coated to satisfy perception rather than create tangible change.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange the fundamentals of the culture to allow for respectful engagement by employees with employees without escalating for every minor item.
Be realistic of the conditions of the industry and invest well in enabling a more agile culture that embraces differences and change.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
