Poor Senior Management, Back-Stabbing, 3 CTOs in 5 Years, Highly Political and Toxic Environment

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Eden Prairie, MN

ProsGood technology, decent co-workers, Salary is ok but could be better

ConsToxic work environment, 3 Chief Technology Officers hired in last 5 years, no work life balance, no appreciation from management, good people are leaving or are removed because of highly political environment, no raise or bonus given to managers and below in 2009 but Directors and above received bonuses, there is no trust, Managers/Directors asked not to say complete truth in Leadership meeting, senior management offer more money to people when they leave,.....too many VPs

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is time to start "inspecting" what your direct reports tells you......don't blindly trust them and make or support their decisions.......... have conversation with real people below who is doing all the work. Offer more money to employees (not many left anyway now) who have been with company for many years instead of offering more money to new people who are leaving, Hire actual people to do the wok instead of VPs

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
