Suggestions for improvement

  • Remove ALL current Management employees immediately. Then re-evaluate the entire staff and their capabilities, especially the 2nd and 3rd shift.

I like about the employer


I dislike about the employer

Management staff was terrible and secretive. The supervisor didn't supervise and the manager ran the place and if he didn't like you, you didn't have a chance. It didn’t matter what you were capable of, your skills, education, abilities, whether you were a hard worker or a slow paced worker that didn’t produce much. What mattered was if you were in the click, so to speak, or you were liked because you didn’t show the Initiative over ANY long time existing employee. It was obvious that there were secretive meetings as to whether you knew too much and could possibly report, if asked by upper management from outside the property by executives from CBRE to evaluate the operations and management of that particular site. They, being management and even long time employees, had meetings to discuss this about new employees. I’ve noticed over time employees on LINKED IN had not stayed very long at this site either. I have actually seen several other recent and past employees that had approx. the same amount of time working at the site without any public comment, but the coincident of the amount of time worked there at the same site and leaving so soon are obvious. Employees that were educated more than the existing employees were looked down to as threats to existing employees. A reason to make sure you didn't make the cut. Existing employees looked at new employees as threats to their jobs and made sure and reported that information to management. Working hard and showing employees improvements that are in place at other similar sites or went against current old methods and were looked on as threats to employees and management for not implementing new benchmarks. Any initiative was looked down upon as going against established "ways of do things that had been in place for 5-10 years or more”. Those that were new are evaluated to whether they would be threats against long time employees and reported to management. And there is a very good reason for these reports to management. Many of the existing employees on second and third shifts were sorely lacking in education and were not kept up to date with existing normal benchmarks and methods of how to run the site. They were compartmentalized and kept in place and were not rotated to receive any education or updates with the operation of the outside world and any other sites and types of operations. It was if they were kept in a time capsule and not kept up-to-date with anything new in the last 10 years. It was not a normal place to work at, at all, at least with the way I had been managing other sites for the last 15 years. As a previous manager of several types of facilities, including data centers it was mandatory for all employees and even contractors to receive a minimum update of all current new technologies, procedures and benchmarks that are constantly moving forward. It was if you were in a union shop up north and under the guise of the mob and this is not as joke or something made up. It is reality and is very serious. Just looking at the pictures of the one-line diagram of the employee positions and the amount of time these employees had been work there was a dead giveaway that most all of the existing employees had been working there for 10 years or more, as the pictures didn’t match what the current employees looked like today even though they were the same employees. They had aged, lost hair. changed hair styles and uniforms but they were the same employees most in the same position. They had aged at least 10 years may 15-20 for others. It was a real giveaway that most of the current employees had never worked at another site and had no idea of new technologies and new industry benchmarks for Data Centers. Tools , designs, procedures, lack of CMMS use, the use of keys vs. badges, radios, plans used for everyday trouble shooting, many obvious things pointed toward not keeping up with current technologies and operations of current and new Data Centers were evident all over the site. And you dared not make a suggestion as that was a marker for you to be reported to management, even if you asked a question as to why certain thing were done a certain way. Everything was secretive and actually showing new employees all the procedures was withheld on purpose in order to hold them back and protect current longtime employees and management. Initiative was completely discouraged. This led to my ultimate release. An excuse was made of course.
