Former Employee - Project Manager in Research Triangle Park, NC
Recommends
Approves of CEO

Pros

Pay and benefits. Flexible work options. Most of the folk want to have a team environment, but the polarization of management and a select few seem to limit a climb in moral.

Cons

Disconnect between management and non management employments. The politics in the company is disturbing and fosters a feeling of being treated beneath others.

Advice to Management

Maybe you're going about this all wrong in terms of how you build your management staff. If you allow managers to only surround themselves with people who think just like they do, indirectly the company is stunted exponentially, because you're breeding segregation, and killing moral. John, Please please change this.
