    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Providence Equity full-time

    Pros

    good pay and benefits. The people are smart and work hard.

    Cons

    Has been suffering from sinking performance. The top performers are leaving at a steady rate. There is v. little diversity in mgmt.
    Office culture leaves a lot of be desired. Backstabbing is encouraged and people conspire to get others fired and the people that are doing this are also getting promoted. Could explain why different depts never collaborate with each other.
    Sr leaders and HR are oblivious to the low morale (or do not care, which is even worse). Mgmt in need of overhaul.

    Advice to Management

    Culture needs to change. Otherwise, enjoy the talent drain.
    Some depts are treated like second-class citizens.

    I have been working at Providence Equity full-time

    Pros

    Great salary, benefits and bonus potential
    Prestigious company name

    Cons

    Weak HR department
    Poor work/life balance
    Severely understaffed
    Frequent turnover in management
    Overall feeling of a class system
    Hard work is typically rewarded with more work until the individual is over capacity, which then leads to a decline in work quality as well as stunted career growth

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff
