Company culture

Company culture

After years of acquisitions, the culture is muddled and confusing. Regardless of what leadership states, you are forever branded on the forehead of your original company.

Support from Management

Empowerment is not something leadership encourages. Managers and director level perform the functions that used to be done at the individual contributor level. Decisions are made without conferring with those it will impact. If you bring up issues, you are perceived as not a team player.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get rid of 2/3rd's of them and be supportive to the faithful employees you have left.
  • Be accountable for your mistakes. Don't push your mistakes onto someone else !

What I like about the company

They are a company that are out there to make a fast buck no matter who they screw over in the process

What I dislike about the company

This company lies through it's "Corporate Teeth" saying one thing out of one side of it's mouth and another thing out of the other side.
