By Far The Worst Workplace Experienced

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsFree coffee and tea
Dress causal every day
If you do not want a life outside work, this is the place to be
If you do not want to be appreciated, see above
There are intelligent and talented individuals whose faces look as though their soul had been sucked by the Man

ConsCompany was previously bought by Sabre; it was initially a web production start-up .com.

Set-up for failure
Poor communication: corporate/mgmt/teams/clients
Minimal training, no technical documentation outlining how to use systems on a basic level, required to learn on own which isn't always a good thing, particularly when you're reprimanded when a mistake is made
Ability to move around laterally, but promotion-wise is near impossible
It is discouraged to decorate and/or display any personal items in work area (e.g. photos of family, calendars)
No telecommuting as promised, similarly with flex time
Long hours and no compensation - lunches were few and far between
Quick to point out all wrong-doings, yet spare any support of encouragement
Departments/teams all stretched thin with unreasonable and unrealistic expectations
Clients were poorly managed by upper management, whose responsibility should have been setting an expectation based upon the company in whole, not what it used to be prior to buyout.
Surreal to see an environment of young professionals (20s-30s) who rarely smiled at one another, stopped by for a quick friendly chat, or spent any time team building outside of work (e.g. happy hour, lunch). Instead, they run around stressed, hurried, anxious, and unhappy. For those who have been there before the buyout, it was their first job out-of-college. For those who were new to the company post-buyout, this is their first experience and belief of what it was like to work in the working-world. For those who were not new to the working world but new to the company (post-buyout), they were culturally SHOCKED.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be moot.
Advice was sought by management. However, to make suggestions fell upon deaf ears. Unfortunately, for those who did speak up, they were told, "it will make you stronger" as if the condescending comment did not take into consideration many folks have quite a bit going on in their lives that make them stronger.
Sadly, many stopped providing feedback as they feared for their jobs in this economic environment.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
