Company Culture

Cutthroat, Self-Absorbed, Small Minded Management in Many Departments

Support from management

All you can count on from management is criticism of your work, your personality, what you stand for and why you didn't solve the world's problems in one day.

Teamwork

If an employee is not in the same office location or the same state as the manager, he or she has no chance of surviving in this company.

Freedom to work independently

None. The boss is ready to attack any day for any reason. If someone is not getting the work done in another department that interrelates with your work, the boss will blame you instead of the system.

Internal Communication

The executives give assignments at the last minute and then punish employees for not getting an impossible task done.

Gender Equality

The executives are sexist.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older colleagues are expendable.

Career Development

No support.

Overall compensation for your work

Not enough for the pain management causes.

Office / Work Environment

Each man or woman for himself.

Environmental Friendliness

No green programs.

Work-Life Balance

The manager keeps pouring on new assignments that could have been announced a year ago and then implemented in a smart way. But no, this company throws out work before developing the infrastructure to get the work done.

Company Image

BOTW got fines $45 million for financing drug dealers.

Job Security

Scary place to work.

Handicapped Accessibility

No handicapped employees that I saw.

Workplace Safety

Good safety precautions.

Challenging Work

Unorganized stop and go work projects.

Inclusive / Diverse

I initiated server multicultural projects and I got punished for doing them! Awful. Minority managers were hurtful just as much as white managers.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get internal efficiency training.

What I like about the company

The logo.

What I dislike about the company

I dislike the way managers criticize employees without collecting any information about them as humans or what they did for their team.
