Company Culture

This is the cause of everything that is wrong with this company. Company is divided between 2 cultures and leadership is failing to address this issue.

Support from management

Lack of leadership - high level communication decent but nothing more. Information affecting non-management horrible.

Teamwork

teams are competitive and there is no unity

Freedom to work independently

too much micromanaging

Internal Communication

high level communication is good but that is the only communication that exists

Career Development

No development - people get stuck or promoted based on necessity not as a career progression

Work-Life Balance

the company encourages it but not a priority - not part of culture

Inclusive / Diverse

What diversity? They employ diverse employees but that is the only box for diversity that they have checked. Male dominated, white dominated and cliquish.

What I like about the company

the idea of the company is great - the following through is not.

What I dislike about the company

lack of corporate culture and communication.
