    Toxic leadership

    Pros

    The pay is very competitive, which is what initially sucks you in. The people are great. The tuition reimbursement is really cool. Opportunities for stock.

    Cons

    One of the most unprofessional places I’ve worked. The executives create a toxic environment that cascades. Yelling, sending heated emails with a dozen people on copy, manipulation, favoritism, all common behaviors. My entire department turned over in a couple years and I’m pretty sure the person who drove them away didn’t even get a slap on the wrist. Tuns out they had driven off many before. No care for employees, work/life balance was nonexistent, forced to work on what was supposed to be paid holidays off, and executives forced us back in the office during the worst of Covid while skimping on sanitation. Technology is decades behind, causing a ton of tedious, manual work that gets audited, and you get chewed out if a mistake is found. Always a day late and a dollar short on staffing.

    It was like a fairy tale... that went to the dark side of the universe and fell in a black hole.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, most bosses are flexible.

    Cons

    Zero work life balance. None. Instead of hiring competent people they expect the existing ones to have no life outside the business and take on more and more. Treat the ones that think for themselves as pariah and only want yes men/women. Certain people in charge need to have their ties severed and bring in people that know what they’re doing.
