Current Employee - Senior Attorney Editor in Rochester, NY
Current Employee - Senior Attorney Editor in Rochester, NY
Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Barest minimum of hours required, can set own start/stop time, friendly folks,

Cons

Mind-numbing banal work (inserting thousands of footnotes a week into books), attorneys treated with contempt, have to report to supervisors who are not lawyers - some with no college degree. Senior management on site possibly insane.

Advice to Management

Fire the directors.

    Current Employee - Consulting Manager in Ann Arbor, MI
    Current Employee - Consulting Manager in Ann Arbor, MI

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Mostly intelligent, self-confident people to work with, so not a lot of back-stabbing, passive aggressiveness or territory conflicts, although some minimal. People eager to help each other. Peer review is encouraged.

    Cons

    Low merit increases regardless of performance, long hours (50-60/wk), not enough resources to deal with workload, no pay for performance even though company claims that is their priority.

    Advice to Management

    Healthcare Division - Company does not provide pay for performance and recognition of hard workers that deliver high quality work consistently. Company says pay for performance is their mode of operation, but annual merit increases do not support this philosophy; always some sob story even though our division has performed well with good revenue growth throughout my time here. Management fails to add resources where teams are putting in an average of 50-60 hours (sometimes more) per week to keep up with workload. Burning people out and then not rewarding them for their hard work. Glocer is far removed from the actual functioning of the division. General managers should take note of situations noted above and fight for more money (compensation)/resources for their unit. There is a feeling among employees that low resources with people putting in lots of overtime (without any compensation) to complete projects drives greater revenue growth (because of the lack of sufficient resources and associated costs), i.e. on the backs of those who put in the long hours to complete. It's about time that they announced who is buying healthcare. Everyone here knows that upper management knows who it is.

    Pros

    Very family friendly Great work facilities and ammenities

    Cons

    Very old boys club Layoffs done by job, not by performance - you could work really hard and get let go just because they can justify eliminating your position. So some people stay forever and hardly work and others work really hard and still get let go. Very de-motivating.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your best employees and stop basing layoffs on jobs instead of performance
