Support from management
My direct managers have generally been supportive. Like you would expect, it depends on your manager's style.
Sometimes collaboration can go too far and slow down the process... Sometimes we get in our own way. It can, at times, be challenging to work cross-team or enterprise.
Freedom to work independently
Mixed bag. Some things I can work independently, and others are managed closely and require approvals, even for seemingly simple items.
Office / Work Environment
Beautiful building with lovely amenities. Unfortunately, at the same time this was put into place, most workers below director level were placed into cubes (most had offices prior to the renovation).
There are great policies in place to help with this! Two examples are "Back-up Care" and Caregiving Leave. Unfortunately, some of them (like telework) are dependent upon the group you work for and not all groups have the same standards.
Better than my last employer but still, there is downsizing and re-organization.
Seems to have everything needed, including most training is compliant.
Guards. Good safety and contingency team.
I have been afforded the opportunity to learn many new things. There is some favoritism displayed in the assignment of cross-cutting projects,
What I like about the company
Social mission and everyone is on board with that!! Dedicated, smart people. Great benefits.
What I dislike about the company
Approval processes can be cumbersome. Lack of ability to telework more often.
