A good company no longer

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsThe people - knowledgeable, caring, customer focused individuals. They are the best the company has to offer. In my years there, I have felt that there was true team spirit, always wanting to do the best for the products and services.

ConsThe new philosophy, management including HR which is not behind the employees have dragged this company down. The layoffs of knowledgeable employees, most of whom were with the company for many years, has not been encouraging, and has brought morale way down. It's been pretty obvious that the long-term employees have been targeted by management.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think the management is beyond advice.

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

    Pros: Work-Life Balance reasonable in terms of number of hours worked… Cons: Lack of employee recognition - every team is in it for themselves = unhealthy competition No motivation - managers even seem unhappy and know that something… Advice to Senior Management: LIVE your values and don't just verbalize them Recognize your employeees… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
