Sad State of Affairs

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsCan't think of any at this time. It used to be the people, but so many of the good ones have left!

ConsIt's sad when senior management has to ask people to write positive reviews for the company. That only shows how desperate the company is and that lack of integrity the company has. Senior management is responsible to help with morale and so they should listen to the folks who have left the company, if they even took the time to speak and listen to them. Some folks have left for the normal reasons (retirement, etc.); others have made up reasons (i.e. retiring when they are really not or supposedly a better offer). The most worrisome, some folks have been asked to leave that were some of the brightest the company had because the company either wants to continue to stay out of touch or just didn't want to deal with what is staring at them.

Also, you really can't trust HR -- they are loyal to the company, period.

Advice to Senior ManagementLive up to your stated values -- value the folks that are truly invested in the company and not willing to play politics just to keep their job -- it's a tougher stance, but in the long run, one that will serve the company well. Don't pretend to care about the employee when you really don't.

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