Great Company as a whole, locally not so great on the RD side

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Abilene, TX

ProsGreat benefits, try to boost morale

Conscurrent RD has little to zero knowledge, to militant in management, asks for middle management input but does not listen.

Advice to Senior ManagementNot great on pay; promised to come in and clean up what the last couple of contractors did not do well. Still promising. Still broken. Instill loyalty by doing what you say and keep the most knowledgeable. Make sure the person at the top (locally) knows how sort and respond to emails and properly use their technology to meet deadlines. heard from a former co-worker that they had just received a response to an email sent to the RD in April and it was August. the response was too late. I seriously see the current contractor being exited soon and that is really sad. Some very talented people still work there and they are not valued. I do not believe the contract manager is hard to please; she just expects talented people to do work.that reflects a job well done every time not sporadically or when there is a deadline.
I would not recommend employment locally but would in other Southwest Key areas.

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