Bad mojo

Director (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsGood at promoting to higher levels of responsibility, and allows you to move laterally to new types of role (after proving yourself for a few years in the field they hired you for). Pays OK.

ConsGlaser and his executive minions can be nasty bullies. Glaser will call your ideas "stupid" in front of your peers/bosses if he disagrees. Plus the company is living off the past with no clear strategy of where to take the company in the 21st century.

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

It seems that RN is always one or two steps behind the competition… Advice to Senior Management: Become more agile. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
