Suggestions for improvement

  • I think that their quest for a reduction in headcount has led to very little oversight, and very poor management. I have colleagues who call in sick once a week, or only work on average 4 hours per week. My managers don't seem to notice or care. The fact that these people are able to get away with this, while my manager's manager doesn't seem to notice or care is disturbing. This is not how it used to be. We need a better management structure in order to be more efficient and effective. Additionally, the layoffs could be more targeted, getting rid of dead weight rather than slashing almost everyone with no thought to who is kept

What I like about the company

I have been here for 11 years minus a 1 year hiatus after a layoff. I owe a lot to this company and have built the majority of my resume here. Pre-2014 (merger and huge layoff) this place was amazing. Not perfect, but overall I was really happy and look back on those days and wish I could go back. Now the culture is different. So many mergers and layoffs have led to a dampened culture, none of us feel safe, secure, or even valued. Additionally, I work in a new group now and the indifference of management to everything is insane. Even getting e mail responses are a challenge, yet blame is constantly rolling downhill. Sexism is rampant and I can't wait to leave

What I dislike about the company

This company answers to the board and stockholders and that is it. There doesn't seem to be even the smallest amount of caring for the employees. Case in point, last year they laid off 5k people to get something like a $0.30 bump in stocks. I don't think the people at the top know or care how devastating it is to lose your job
