The office is nicely decorated and is stuffed with beautiful furniture. However, everyone basically sits in one big room, so it's super noisy. No one ever opens the windows, so the air gets really bad during the day. The kitchen has to be cleaned by the employees themselves, so this is how it looks.
The toilets get cleaned everyday by a company but tend to be quite dirty anyway.
Management is behaving like they own the people who work in their teams. They pretend to be very chill and open-minded but in the end, they only want to impose their ideas on their team without listening to the team's feedback. Once you share your ideas and do not agree with something management has introduced, they tell you that you can't communicate and would behave defensively. Really good managers are slowly replaced by submissive ones who do what senior management/ management wishes. For example, my manager (who was the best!) got replaced by a new team lead who did not even try to connect with the team and simply imposed new stuff on us while placing herself above everyone. When I started criticizing this behavior and also went to her manager, their next idea was to harass me instead of thinking about their actions. Also, management does not really connect with the everyday work people do which leads to a bad lack of knowledge and they therefore commit to tasks that are actually not doable.
