It is a mix of awesome people with some not so good people
It is their way or the highway even though they do not know that job
If you are looking for a place that recognizes and rewards talented, hardworking people, you will be sorely disappointed. On the other hand, if you thrive off of drama, back stabbing, manipulation, smoke and mirrors, and brown nosing, this will be your castle. If you excel at the ability to stroke egos you have a very good chance of slashing your way up the ranks. If finding an environment where maturity and interdependency are understood and valued by management, and synergy is created as a result, then Christie will not be your kingdom. However, if you feel at home wading thru a moat of codependent leaders who are driven by their ego and insecurity, then Christie will be your playground.
Terrible at communicating what is actually going on

No vision for employee development
I worked for Christie just over eleven years and one of the many things that I learned was, “hard work” is rewarded with “more work” without more pay. Most of the people that get promoted are the people who know how to feed into the ego of management even if they aren’t good at their job. Most of Christie’s executive management are narcissists, this is why they never see themselves as the problem, they will always blame it on someone or something else and never reflect on their own short comings or listen to constructive criticism, it is impossible for a narcissist to do this. They surround themselves in their inner circle with people who stroke their ego rather than healthy people who will be honest and tell management the truth knowing that it will be a hard thing for management to receive.
My senior director was/is a very talented, bright, intelligent individual just as her predecessor was, however her down fall is that she’s insecure and ego driven. It clouds her judgement causing her to make poor decisions, this stops her from becoming great. She micromanaged my boss and did not allow him to freely manage the RMA team thus putting extra stress on him and the team. Many people left in my last few years because of her but she refuses to see that she is the reason, she would rather blame it on my boss making him the fall guy.
- Hire an outside consulting firm like Gallup to come into the company and assess each department to find the areas of waste and cut the fat. Do not simply pay hundreds of thousands to an outside firm to just rewrite and give you some outline to structure it to, all you are doing is move the cancer around to another area and not actually make it better.
It was close to my home
Too many to list here, let's just say it is a very unhealthy place
