Incompetent Senior Management, underpaid, and overworked

Project Manager - Localization (Current Employee) Superior, CO

Pros- Job stability
- Career growth
- Experience in project management
- Localization experience
- Good peers

Cons- Too much bureacracy for as quick as you are expected to handle situations.
- Promotions come often but often receive a "pay increase" that is the same as you were making before.
- Business Unit Director and above expect you to want to work 60 or more hours a week regularly to get ahead.
- Too much noise and chaos in office to be able to think or have a conversation with a customer on the phone.
- Management vocally only cares about $$
- More work tossed at less and less people
- Turnover
- Incompetent Operations Manager who senior management thinks is brilliant allowed to come and go as he pleases while everyone else works likes slaves.

Advice to Senior Management- Your customers could be reading this right now!
- Your customers will tire of cycling through SDL contacts that don't stay
- Pay people fair wages considering the increasing profitability of the company. We are tired of hearing about how you can't pay more money to people because other divisions aren't doing as well. We aren't stupid - your financials are public! With as many hours as you expect people to work I would make more hourly at McDonald's
- Deal with your resourcing issues in all offices. Apparently Mark Lancaster needs another gold chain, but maybe instead you should hire enough people to process the increasing work you are getting
- Get an HR department that is loyal to the employees rather than senior management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
