Obvious Lack of Leadership and Appreciation

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Truestone

ProsSome of pros of working for Truestone:
- Management is trying to steer the company in the right direction by developing a focus of what Truestone is to do as a business.
- The company "attempts" to provide a work/life balance for their employees
- People in the company can be friendly at times
- There is some potential to make Truestone a much better place to work

ConsMany downsides of working at Truestone:
- It is glaringly obvious upper management does not have a clear focus for the company and often times blends their identity with it's "sister companies" under the parent corporation
- Management obviously lacks leadership qualities and this is very problematic.
- Too many people in key positions are not qualified to do their work and often times "delegate" their work to others resulting in poor quality of work
- Lack of appreciation towards employees who bring hard work and value to the organization; it almost seems like management doesn't recognize talent nor does it seem like they know how to retain talent. It seems more like a "good ol' boys club" and if you're not "IN", then you're often times ignored; favoritism is a very big problem.
- Benefits package overall can be improved, particularly, vacation or paid time off. Two weeks vacation and long hours makes their claim of providing work/life balance almost laughable.
- It almost doesn't matter how talented or experienced you are...as long as you butter up management they'll think you're doing a great job.
- Too many major changes and turnover of good, qualified people

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to management:
1. Provide clear leadership and direction by finding and retaining qualified people.
2. Don't feel threatened by gifted, talented, and experienced employees who may not be in management but listen to their thoughts and perspectives; develop a better way to retain them.
3. Develop a clear corporate identity apart from the other sister companies.
4. Need to find qualified middle management who can bridge the gap between corporate and contracts; feedback I have often received is that employees on contracts feel very disconnected from the corporate main office.
5. Please follow up on claims that are made, e.g. if Truestone values work/life balance then build that into the benefits package.
