Current Employee - Video Services Specialist in Thornton, CO

No opinion of CEO

Pros

The food was great. The place was fun to work. The people are capable and smart.

Cons

The management was too far removed from our group. They really had no idea what we did or how. And they never asked. The would make power plays against each other that would adversely affect the day to day of the people working below them. There was a very strong feeling of working "for" them, Not "With" them.

Advice to Management

lose the OKR's. People just write what you want them to and it is ineffective.
