Upper finance management seems more interested in playing favorites than true people development

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Minneapolis, MN

ProsGreat global reach so many opportunities to travel internationally and learn the business in different countries. The people overall are very experienced and excel at their jobs.

ConsIt is obvious management at the upper level of finance plays favorites - decisions about hiring/firing/retention seem more based on getting on upper finance's "good side" rather than true employee performance. As a result, there is a lack of trust in upper management's retention and personnel development decisions, especially if you have a direct or dotted-line reporting to the CFO. This has become increasingly obvious now that preparations for the merger are advancing.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo a better job retaining talent, especially during the merger process. Make sure retention and development of talent is fair, not based on a single individual's opinions/views.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
