Poorly managed office, unacceptable treatment of staff.

Current Employee - Field Representative in Halifax, NS (Canada)

I have been working at Summerhill Group as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Good reputation, several offices across Canada.

Cons

Very reactive organization, with little foresight into the results of decision making. Culture of entitlement, with no accountability taken by staff. Responsibilities of the office staff frequently overlap, resulting in communication problems and frustration for the Field Representatives. Promised a variety of incentives which do not get delivered.

Field representatives are treated like second class citizens, with a "guilty until proven innocent" approach to problem solving. Very poor communication among the office; and to the field representatives, which results in constant micromanagement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create clearly defined responsibilities for office staff, and hold them accountable.

    I worked at Summerhill Group full-time

    Pros

    Great group of young energetic people to work with.

    Cons

    management is in way over their heads. Direction changes all the time leading to a lot of chaos. "Do this -why are you doing this?"

    Managers without any management experience making poor on the fly decisions and horrible micro management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    know your limits -play within it.
