Hostile environment. Do not give your honest opinion if asked, the CEO really doesnt want to hear it, it will be held against you.
Support from management
Ya right. CEO encourages people to "pick up the bouncing balls" but if you volunteer for something and it goes wrong you will pay the price.
At the worker level within certain groups it is pretty good but not at a company level. A lot of back stabing to advance ones career.
Freedom to work independently
Micro management is the only management style known at Aspen
One way - more like do not speak unless spoken to
Attitude towards older colleagues
CEO like a younger, cheaper workers.
Overall compensation for your work
Pay is not bad at some levels.
Office / Work Environment
Hostile work environment. Keep your head down and try not to be seen.
Read any of the review boards. Company has a very bad reputation. Positive posts are mostly planted to try and increase rating. Turnover is very high - several people have quit in a few weeks / months - including several Execs!
CEO will cut your throat in a heart beat as soon as he is done with you
There are some interesting work
Suggestions for improvement
- Replace the CEO and several of the executives.
What I like about the company
Health insirance was very good. Some nice, hardworking people work there (at worker levels)
What I dislike about the company
CEO and most of the Exec leadership. The most hostile work environment you will ever encounter.
