    Narcissistic Work Environment with a Terrible Turnover Rate

    Aug 8, 2021 - Technical Support Engineer in Fulton, MD
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Coffee machine. - Snacks. - Safe area.

    Cons

    Everything is indeed dealt with on a case by case basis based off personal feelings. What applies to one employee does not apply to another. Major lack of consistency and transparency. Poor leadership practices overall, and they ultimately hire more leaders with similar views. Major unprofessionalism, egotistical behavior, lack of manners, lack of appreciation for employees, and unethical practices. You see special treatment given to certain individuals. The issues indeed circle around upper management/staff, who focuses on all of the wrong things. If it doesn’t have to do with bringing in money, they don’t care. They’re disorganized and operate unethically, and they encouraged leaders to perform the same way. The CEO is concerned with how things at the company APPEAR, and he enables the poor operations yet plays the good cop. Specific upper management staff are infamous for cursing during serious discussions, calling employees stupid, and this is reflected in other actions that lack basic decency. Some employees directly reporting to the main people on the upper management team move shiesty as well. Plus, nothing is a priority unless it involves money. Ex. The numerous reviews below that mention that promises are always broken at this company, and there’s no follow-through. I’d overlook the recent “positive reviews” with cons that aren’t really cons, which is definitely apart of management’s recent morale initiatives since as I mentioned, money is top priority. The timing of the responses to negative reviews and the postings of positive reviews are rather coincidental. Also, the incredibly terrible turnover rate is affecting the company’s customers now since they are constantly being re-assigned new staff. Why not preserve your employees who know the product and are strong workers instead of having to constantly replace them because of your poor work environment/turnover rate? The review below stating that these reviews are fake and written by upper management/staff is definitely true. They’re not interested in hearing methods that will improve employee‘s day to day operations unless it’s directly affecting the money coming in. This is exactly why so many people leave. This on top of the fact that they measure workload horribly is incredibly overwhelming for employees and hurt those of us who worked with medical centers directly. They can respond to as many reviews on here or add positive reviews, the true issue is the CEO & upper management/staff, who lack genuine care and understanding for employees and only care about the money they bring in or their special privileges. These new initiatives are only because the bad turnover rate is affecting their customers = their money. Also, they overwork employees and don’t consider the existing tasks they already have on their plate. They spring large tasks at the last minute excessively with no regard for the employee. Also, their logic is if someone is assigned a task and does it crappy, instead of holding the person accountable, they’re going to dump it on the employees who get things done efficiently resulting in burnout, and the other person getting by. The only “accountability” that takes place is randomly firing people in bulk due to not meeting metrics followed by hiring in large numbers. There are always adjustments that are not time efficient with no consideration for employees’ workloads. Management breeds leadership staff that think they are above the rules. You have to be heartless and lack understanding to be successful and happy at the company. The company also doesn’t have a full-on functioning HR department, which has been observed by employees for years and made us lose hope for any change. The only people in the company who are happy for the most part are the ones who get an incredibly high salary (management) or special privileges to work remotely most of the time (and don’t have to deal with the in-office BS even though it is slowly but surely trickling into the lives of remote workers). The remote policy isn’t consistent either. Management making over six figures get away with a lot including how they speak to others since they’re never held accountable. But of course not, those running the company act the same way, so they don’t see an issue. The company has handled the pandemic inconsistently as well, which has frustrated most employees. They do just enough to appear like they care and make emails sound like they are doing multiple things behind the scenes to preserve everyone’s health. If that was the case, they’d have everyone work from home at least a majority of the time (I mean, it’s an IT company that’s not customer facing in the corporate office). It’s all a micromanagement strategy, and many employees are being unprofessionally called out with screens being tapped into. Also, cameras are in EVERY area of the corporate office except those with their own office. Most of the company is not fond of how they monitor remote work as well. Operations are handled in a passive-aggressive way since the company solely cares about statistics and money and not its employees. Even the perk for a half day the day before holidays is inconsistent since Support now has to meet metrics to earn it while it varies for other departments. They can get away with this strategically since it’s not in writing. The same goes for snow days. We are directed to an attendance and leave policy that is very vague where most companies are clear as events are happening. The goal is to work, work, work with little regard for employees. The company is calculated, so they tend to find ways to appear like they care when they really don’t. Whether it’s someone testing positive for COVID in the office, COVID-19 practices, inclement weather practices, holidays, etc., everything is handled inconsistently and strategically. Especially, to prevent employees from working from home when upper management/staff are rarely in themselves. If there are any concerns about performance and employees’ workloads, rather than having an open conversation with employees like human beings to develop a plan of action, strategic conversations are done behind the scenes and they think it won’t get back to employees (it almost always does). Yes, management is that disorganized and passive-aggresive. They do not really delve into why the turnover rate is terrible, and why people in specific positions KEEP LEAVING. Narcissism. Employees that are not department heads or have seniority that are assets & strong workers still get treated with minimal appreciation. The disorganization of the company results in employees being put in situations where they have to scramble and aren’t necessarily prepared for what is thrown at them, which puts employees in a bad position. The turnover rate has gotten so bad that it’s now trickling into how customers are perceiving the company since their assigned reps. keep changing because they keep quitting. Morale is low, the turnover rate is TERRIBLE, and the company does just enough to try to appear that they care for its employees. Don’t be tricked into thinking it’s professional because of the beautiful corporate office. It’s anything but that. The company is family-owned with family working for the company, so ultimately, the CEO signs off on everything. Even if there was a full-on HR department, you’re screwed. Their focus is incredibly distorted, and they like to make it a “employees are just trying to get by” thing. With every job, there may be employees who just try to get by, but that applies to people even on the upper management/staff team at MagView. Numerous STRONG employees at this company, who knew the product inside and out, have left due to management and how the company is operated. To maintain professionalism, they won’t say this when quitting but it’s known to people they’ve directly worked with. If you’re hired as a remote employee and don’t pass the three weeks of training at the corporate office, you’re let go on top of the fact that they randomly fire and let go of staff in bulk, which definitely applies to Support. You don’t know how many people I’ve seen join the department I was in (and others) just to be let go because they didn’t pass training. I’ve also seen the Fourth of July being listed as a holiday for employees to be off, and management take it away from staff when numerous employees already had trips scheduled.

    Some tech isn't current (older programming languages), and if you don't learn the KPI "secrets" your numbers will certainly fall behind.

    Pros

    -easy but tedious tasks -if you have no experience what so ever and didn't go to college -if you dont want your next job to be a life commitment? but maybe only a year or less than a year -you can learn a lot about the breast health industry/ breast cancer

    Cons

    -forced to spend effort to while getting no meaningful results because they don't care for meaningful results -therefor it is really stressful but you cannot do anything about it -no one really gets any benefit no matter how hard you work or the quality of work you put out. Depressing. -if you have a college degree in STEM please look elsewhere because it won't be put to good use and you will lose that value over time -when you leave you will realize that these 'skills' won't get you a better job, so you need to refine meaningful skills on your own time -turnover rate is so high and they don't bother to try to keep you even if you are very knowledgeable and/or if you are trying to leave -lot of knowledgeable people have left so it is hard to find anyone to get help (part of why it was stressful but you can't do anything about it) -you need to get everything in a recording or handwritten if they promise you something or if you partake in any meeting because the gaslighting is strong

    Cons

    -unhappiness at work and stress with day to day work/expectations beyond levels experienced in other workplaces -will add to new responsibilities outside your job description without increasing pay or removing responsibilities proportionately to compensate -constant exodus of burnt out employees who are the only ones with any significant experience with product -any pay increase (which they call "rewards") are calculated behind confusing and arbitrary processes employees don't see -constant monitoring and productivity tracking -management will gaslight you about promises not being written down -outdated technology -low quality standards
