A sales driven organization that feels like a grade-school playground sometimes

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Shawnee, KS

ProsFun environment, lots of events, very smart people, rigorous hiring process, free food often, plenty of access to resources/training, great peers to learn from. Decent benefits for families.

ConsGrowing pains: Parking is crappy, shortage of restrooms, workspaces are small and yet not organized for collaboration: people sitting at folding tables, different workspaces for different departments with no sense to it. Engineering (Developer) political clout way too high and quality/respect suffers. Management is a very small tight circle that commands and controls in a manipulative/bad parenting "Here's some candy now shutup" kind of way. Benefits are poor for singles. Lack of attention to depth and quality. Poor software architecture based on embedding and tangling into systems. More focus on acquisition of customers and employees than on executing strategy and tactics.

Advice to Senior ManagementShow a clear purpose, strategy, and focus for all of the growth... all of the pain of growth doesn't seem purposeful or measured. No clear direction other than to "Sell to everyone no matter what."

    Positive, though the rapidness of change (even for the positive) can be unsettling at times.
