Favoritism, bureaucracy, staff overworked...

Department Manager (Former Employee) Washington, DC

ProsGood location, nice people, comfortable hours

ConsSenior management doesn't care how much you work, how much you do, how late you stay. Big turnaround, people are always looking lo leave, you won't move up if you don't kiss some large behinds. There are couple of those LARGE behinds which decide the fate of the company and I've seen people who kissed up but weren't qualified got promoted or even got positions created for them. New thing there - delegation of all senior manager's or director's duties down to their subordinates. Now regular staff even more overworked and performing jobs out of their job description without a raise or bonus ever, so the directors can have more time shopping for baby clothes or downloading music. If not for stale, old management, the company could do so much better.

Advice to Senior ManagementReplace the old concervative director and his stale possy. Seems that they don't care about the direction or the progress of the company. What have changed in the past 5 years? Nothing. It's time to refresh, renew, hire young, ambitious minds, give it a push. It's time to change the oil in this old vehicle and give it an ovehaul.... it needs some new fresh ideas, otherwise it will welt.

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