- CompanyBSI Financial Services
- Are you a Current or Former Employee?Former job since 2014
Culture remained as "good ole" boy culture. If you didn't begin with the company, you wrre an outsider.
Top leadership was unavailable. Company goals were not disseminate to subordinates. No room for advancement and company and its business parnters are plagued with racism.
Departments were in competition instead of working together. It was a "cut throat" environment.
No autonomy present
The communication was sparse. The only information that was given was of performance that highlighted :good ole boy: top performers.
Lowest compensation in the industry.
Workers worked at their own pace in order to make money. Hours were unlimited because of the "cut throat" environment.
No work life balance. They don't care.
Can be terminated for the smallest infraction.
No challenge because there was no room for advancement. The work eas like processing widgets.
Staff had no opinions or input on processes throughout the company.
Leadership was not available .
The culture was - the owner was always mad because he wasn't making enough money.. HE WOULD BASICALLY TELL IS EXACTLY - THAT
Very aggressive and poor training, Extraordinarily unrealistic expectations. If you were not a manager your opinion received eye rolls and smirks.
The work load was INSANE! and you didn't dare complain. They would give you a months worth of work and expect you to get it done in a 40hr week..
We had monthly office meeting where we went over all profits and numbers.
I felt like females and males were treated equally. There were quite a few woman in higher up levels, possibly more women than men.
There are possibilities to move from one department to another. Cross training was not really an option though..
We could get salary but hinted to work every waking hour.. We also received commissions once our files went to closing BUT we would work on a file for months and months and finally when it was days away from closing, the company would reassign the files to close under someone laws name so NO ONE receives the commissions.. when our department attempted to discuss this with management, management refused to make changes..
You were expected to work 40hrs in the office BUT you were expected to get your months worth of work to be completed in 1 weeks time so.... You worked evenings and weekends from home to get it done. You could take off whenever you wanted within reason..
The majority of employees dreaded daily life due to this employer.. Many would quit without notice.
I felt you were set up to fail BUT they would hang onto must employees because so many would leave on their own without notice.. So, if you didn't quit the likelihood of you being "let go" was slim.
I never felt unsafe but I do not recall ever being shown emergency exits in case of an emergency.
The work was challenging but you did not have any time to be proud of yourself. Usually if you were proud of something it would get shot down that you didn't get more work done.. NOTHING was appreciated.
The office is located around the corner from Bethesda Row.. VERY accessible to metro.. That's about it..
Everything!.. Management was selfobsorbed, condescending and in many cases verbally aggressive.. The work load was insanely unrealistic. They would arrange so (in many cases) the files you should have been receiving commissions on would be moved around in such a way, no one would get paid for them..
