Terrible leadership = disorganization and poor morale

I worked at Wireless Generation, Inc. full-time for more than a year

Pros

Friendly and talented co-workers, working in education, DUMBO location, free coffee and soft drinks, usually very little pressure to get things done.

Cons

IT ops was incredibly mis-managed. Lots of broken processes and questioning them just makes you a target for the petty leads. Morale was absolutely terrible and most of the good people have moved on to greener pastures. Very little career growth and you reach the top of your career path in about a year. If you do take a job here, try to get everything in writing up front. They will make promises of bonuses, promotions, and in my case green card sponsorship but won't keep their word. As I was leaving they again offered all of these things to me and more, but at that point it was way too little, way too late.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a serious look at why people are leaving. There have been employee surveys and many exit interviews for you to learn from.

    Great company littered with some bad tenured management.

    Pros

    This company truly cares about innovating education. It is pretty much a Technology-Education company filled with very smart people.

    Cons

    Management is iffy. There are bad product managers and some good ones. Often times bad ones are there for a very long time that they have become a mainstay. Often the mainstay will cause havoc in team dynamics, causing some to leave. Although the company practices a 360 Feedback, management is not doing this, therefore, people from the bottom cannot complain about bad management, and therefore nothing is done but let these 'tenured' managers run rampant with bad behaviors. This causes people to leave. Otherwise, most of the people in the company are good to great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher-level executive managers should employ feedback policies across the board, and 360 feedbacks. Managers with very bad behavior ruining the company remains unchecked, undisciplined, and stay there to ruin or slow progress in the name of their ego.
