I worked at Situs full-time for less than a year

Pros

There are some great people to work with, but even they have a hard time staying positive. Everyone works really hard to get the job done. Management puts together a lot of training to help improve the environment Great holiday schedule and PTO.

Cons

All of the initiatives that are being put in place are not actually being used by Sr. Management. They talk a good game but are not willing to actually participate. People are not held accountable for their actions and yet, people are "laid off" on a regular basis. If you get on Sr. Managers bad side, it is only a matter of time before they let you go or force you out...even if they never had a reason other than they just did not like your "DiSC profile. Favoritism is blatant and obvious. Sr. Management discloses confidential information on employees without thinking or caring about the consequences. They are just as wrapped up in the rumors if not the ones starting them. Not willing to listen to new ideas unless they are from their "special" employees. Pay is based on hiring manager but no real pay structure. Claim to have an open door policy but very limited to who you can trust...including HR.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Practice what you preach. Treat people with respect and grow up. Stop allowing "legacy monkeys" to ruin the company. Clean out the bad and allow for fresh ideas and practices. Stand behind what you say and hold people accountable rather than just giving them packages to leave. Stop the nepotism, especially when the employee reports directly up to their parent and the parent has full discretion on increases and bonuses...sends the wrong message and everyone knows it. No matter how much you put into marketing and recruiting, if you do not make changes to the culture, you will never retain top talent.

    I worked at Situs full-time

    Pros

    Intelligent co-workers
    Business-casual dress attire
    Some attempts by senior management to improve the business climate. The new CEO clearly has a better direction in my mind for the company. If he cleans out current senior management at the director level and above, in the future, this might be a more bearable place to work at.

    Cons

    They do not train you well and then get mad when you make mistakes. And on top of that, they won't even tell you that you are making errors! Younger employees are used as scapegoats by senior employees when things go wrong. Senior management at the Director level is unprofessional and unethical. They will lie to you and clients and speak about matters that should be discussed behind closed doors in front of a room of people. Investment banking type hours for below market salary. In summary, horrendous management, terrible hours, poor training, and back stabbing among piers. They set you up to fail and then fire you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out management at the director level above and start over. Learn to care about what your employees think instead of using them as scapegoats when things go wrong. Learn ethics. Learn professional business conduct.

    I have been working at Situs full-time

    Pros

    Situs has a good culture, values and giving back to others. You can also gain much experience and knowledge from working here. The atmosphere is generally nice to be around.

    Cons

    This company has a hard time retaining employees. In certain departments, Management tends to forget about lower level employees. There is also an unspoken bitterness with some of the employees who have been with Situs before it started changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to through with what you've promised. For example, year end bonuses, moving our company location, etc.
