Under prior management, I was afforded latitude, job growth and a collegial atmosphere.

Company Culture

Overall moral is suffering.

Support from management

Do I even go here? They have an agenda, but it's primarily to save a buck for shareholders.

Teamwork

People are doing their best under difficult circumstances.

Freedom to work independently

Hey... Don't even think about it.

Internal Communication

Management says on thing publicly, but does something else privately.

Gender Equality

Equally appears to be well supported.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Did not see evidence of age discrimination.

Office / Work Environment

Referring back to moral issue.

Work-Life Balance

If you're not careful here, they will work you like a mule.

Job Security

If you're in a position that can't be outsourced then you should be good.

Inclusive / Diverse

Lots of diversity going On! Especially of you are a less expensive offshore personnel

What I like about the company

I found a challenging position. The company did not what to foster it.

What I dislike about the company

The constant cutting of corners will end up costing them more. Has happened time and again here.

  • Back your employees and fight for them against the Ivory tower.

What I like about the company

They pay you well for the market.

What I dislike about the company

When it comes to the bottom line you are Nothing but another body in a chair to most people a dime a dozen. When they need to to get the numbers in the black for year end hope your not the highest paid. Years don't matter with a layoff or service just how much you make because the more you make the bigger the impact. No comp for a layoff will drum up a "team" in home office to try and let you go for cause.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The company culture is horrible and built on fear.There are frequent layoffs in order to control expenses and improve profits for shareholders. Every other week, they are hiring a new Senior Vice President. They treat older workers horribly and send jobs offshore routinely.

What I like about the company

The work is challenging and I like the opportunity to work with the clients.
