      Company in constant transition; Leadership inconsistencies

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Mission and focus on global impact

      Cons

      The company has been evolving and different departments work in silos while likely covering same subject matter. Blanket executive decisions are made with little in-depth understanding of individual team contributions and value. Near sighted decisions end up impacting work and morale.

      Toxic sinking ship...

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Smart colleagues who share their expertise and knowledge. Great medical benefits. Amazing philanthropic products.

      Cons

      Vague mission with no clear path in sight. Vulcan has become an extremely toxic environment in some departments. Don’t speak up with a differing idea or opinion than some leaders or be ready to leave. It’s counter to the lip service the org gives around strength in diversity of ideas. Promotions and opportunities are rarely based on merit but rather on favoritism and what you can do for your leader’s bonus. Inequities of workload vs title/level- not everyone is held accountable and to the same standard.
