    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work when upper management cared about employees and their personal development. Now it has become a placement factory where only numbers (however they are calculated) count.

    Cons

    After 15 years of excellent ratings, a new manager came in and gave me the lowest ratings possible. No explanation was given and HR said there was nothing they could do about it. Management bullied, berated and belittled employees in front of groups. Employees were disciplined for not doing tasks that were never assigned to them. One employee was not "fired" - had their position "eliminated" as security escorted them out the door (after 20+ years)!
    This is supposed to be a place of learning but anyone that tries to think for themselves is eliminated. If you are not willing to be a YES man, do not work here.

    I would have liked to give them an overall rating of zero but this system requires at least one star.

    Advice to Management

    When almost an entire department (80% of employees) quit within a year of a new manager, maybe there is a problem there?
