Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Foresite Compliance Cloud full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Above average pay-scale for the area, "team building-events", small group feel, free coffee, pinball and video games in the lobby. Pretty killer fish tank in the main lobby

Cons

* "Start-up Mentality" means no one can make a decision or hold leadership accountable.
*Repeatedly instructed to intentionally deceive clients about deliverable dates, development efforts and software patches.
*Extreme micro-management feel.
*Pay Day was never pay day.... always late, always an excuse, never the truth.
*No communication between leadership members among themselves and limited discussions from leadership to the workforce.
*Old Boy's Club - all the Brits were taken care of.
*Expectation to work 12-16 hours days to interact with UK Software Dev Team and my US Based clients.
*Let's not forget changing Medical Providers 4 times in 9 months. That is horrible leadership. Lost my co-pay three times. If you are going to take that approach, fund an HSA for every employee.
*Significant amount of employee turnover

Advice to Management

*Be transparent. Take ownership. Make your employees the priority.
*Bring some Development resources to the US instead of keeping it all offshore in the UK.
*Pay people on time, every time, no matter what.
*Have a corporate roadmap and share that map with clients and employees alike
*Start a retention compensation plan for employees who want to stay....

    Pros

    Video Games and Fish Tank

    Cons

    Rediculous unatainable goals, you are set up to fail even before you begin the job! Supervisors are not able to reach their own goals yet repremand employees for not hitting their numbers. Very Hypocritical! Micro Managing at it's worst!

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach! Tell the Truth and get rid of unmotivated supervisors who don't really like their jobs or co-workers just their paycheck. Stop trying to scare employees into working harder.

    I worked at Foresite Compliance Cloud full-time

    Pros

    Great amount of PTO and sick time. Employees are friendly and laid back outside of work.

    Cons

    The work in the Data Collection department is monotonous and mundane with no room for growth or development. The workload has tremendously increased in the past few months and the amount of admins are still the same, just a handful. The increased workload along with no transparency into the company caused decreased moral amongst the department.

    Supervisors micro-managed the department. Anytime used for personal time had to be accounted for or made up for, down to the minute. There was no trust between the supervisors/HR and the admins. This was the only department that had to clock in and out, even though some employees were salaried. This company does not respect nor value their employees. All internet activity is monitored, including chats. Everything is kept a secret, even new hires, until the day they start.

    Reviews are hardly on time, which could be an effort to delay raises. Pay checks were also delayed on many occasions.

    Advice to Management

    It is better to rule with respect than to rule with fear. Respect your employees and they will respect you. Create a better work environment and relationship amongst the employees, especially amongst different departments. Keep all employees up to date and involved; do not make it so apparent that you are hiding matters from certain employees.
