Does Vulcan offer stock options or a stock purchase plan?

Pros

1. Intelligent colleagues. I worked with some very sharp, amazing people. 2. Excellent views of the city (Seattle office). 3. Generous salary for the Seattle area, unless you consider public companies with stock options. 4. Generous health insurance plans. I have never enjoyed better health benefits outside of Vulcan.

Cons

1. Those who are the most toxic get promoted. 2. No self-awareness by upper management. 3. Unethical HR practices. If you ever have an issue with a manager or other senior person, it's easier to just leave than consult HR. (See #5 below). 4. Skin-deep commitment to "diversity and inclusion". And very myopic. If you are a woman in tech that wants to move up, forget about Vulcan. 5. Layoffs are the primary means by which managers get rid of employees that occasionally express opposing opinions.

Advice to Management

Nothing really. It's too late.

3. Generous salary for the Seattle area, unless you consider public companies with stock options.

Does Vulcan offer bonus pay?

Pros

Smart colleagues who share their expertise and knowledge. Great medical benefits. Amazing philanthropic products.

Cons

Vague mission with no clear path in sight. Vulcan has become an extremely toxic environment in some departments. Don’t speak up with a differing idea or opinion than some leaders or be ready to leave. It’s counter to the lip service the org gives around strength in diversity of ideas. Promotions and opportunities are rarely based on merit but rather on favoritism and what you can do for your leader’s bonus. Inequities of workload vs title/level- not everyone is held accountable and to the same standard.

Advice to Management

This ship will continue to sink if you do not start asking questions of employees below Director level- you’re not getting an accurate picture of the state of the company. People are scared to speak up for fear of losing their jobs. If you actually care about Diversity efforts, hire someone at the ELT level with experience in this discipline instead of the all white yes men you have sitting around the table who have never worked in this space. These are the same men who constantly talk over women and take credit for other people’s work. Change will not happen with the same view/path/opinions surrounding you.

Promotions and opportunities are rarely based on merit but rather on favoritism and what you can do for your leader’s bonus.
