    Cons

    Company 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 Management

    It 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.
