Bad corporate environment

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

ProsNone significant enough to make this company worth your time.

ConsExecutives get very special treatment, including better offices, better food ordered for their meetings. Most people are not allowed to communicate with the executives, including senior managers and associate directors. They also are not held to timelines as all other employees are.

The executives also have their hands in the minutiae. Their approval is needed in order to allow a temporary employee to start. However, when it can take up to a month (or longer) to acquire a signature from any one of them, this makes it difficult to get new people in. Some of the executives insist on interviewing all candidates for their group, including temporary positions. At such a high level, they do not understand what is going on at the lower levels, and make budgets and other important decisions they probably shouldn't be wasting their time even thinking about.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a better community feeling, instead of creating an us versus them feeling for the common folk and the executives.

Allow managers to manage and get your hands out of the details that you aren't in the know about.

Don't create such demanding deadlines unless you are willing to open positions and open up the budget.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
