Nothing like it used to be. Last 5 years have been neurotic; changing focus non-stop, changing C-level execs like they were underwear, changing processes and systems “for the better” with end results being the opposite, and leaders with egos bigger than the 851 building. And the layoffs....oh, the layoffs. If you enjoy fearing twice a year that your job will be shipped off to India, this is the place for you.
Lots of managers and directors are roadblocks to getting things done.
Tend to over communicate but are very ineffective in getting the core message across.
Attitude towards older colleagues
For the most part, appropriate respect is given to those who deserve it.
Overall compensation for your work
Somewhat competitive to other employers but the salary gaps between those in the same grade/function in the company is way off.
Office / Work Environment
Work anywhere concept forced upon you. Can’t keep pictures of your family or work momentos on your desk because you have none. You show up, throw your stuff into a tiny locker, grab a fistful of Lysol wipes and try to find a work area that has working equipment and isn’t surrounded by those who talk loudly non-stop all day, even when you are on conf calls.
Still pretty good - one of the few things keeping me here.
Once excellent, now becoming a joke.
I can count on two hands how many rounds of layoffs I’ve been through in my time here.
Very challenging, because they are constantly changing direction.
Suggestions for improvement
- Stop changing direction, focus and product names non-stop.
What I like about the company
Insurance benefits are pretty good. Lots of people still here do care about the company and doing good work.
What I dislike about the company
Everything mentioned in comments above.
The following benefits were offered to me
