Support from management

Direct supervisor unavailable, listened with half an ear (she thought her multi-tasking was impressive) and a blind eye

Teamwork

This office lost 4 Business Development Managers in 3 years

Freedom to work independently

Although she is a woman, management style reflects a Napoleon complex characteristics; aggressive and domineering.

Internal Communication

Unavailable, not all management were consistent with order and affected my ability to think clearly. Too many chiefs with conflicting directions.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Stay quiet if you have a separate opinion. They like ‘yes men’

Career Development

The business model is out-dated, without a big picture vision.

Overall compensation for your work

Manager made sure commissions fell just below 1 % of the next scale for commissions.

Office / Work Environment

I requested office supplies, biz card holder, 3-ring and gel pens. It was denied. They didn’t even have coffee. A normal business right-off.

Environmental Friendliness

N/A

Company Image

The office after 3 years had no presence in the community, as an example: I requested to have them listed on Google maps.

Job Security

Revolving door. Unfortunately, they pay $1,000’s of dollars for training.

Workplace Safety

The sink didn’t work since the office was opened (3 yrs) until I requested property manager to repair.

Challenging Work

Personally, I’m in my element the more challenging the task. Regrettably, the challenge was in office and the destruction from disfunctioning within the infrastructure was to say the least, disappointing.

Inclusive / Diverse

Unfortunately

What I like about the company

The executive address employee questions, which appears to have a concern to grow communication. There is a common question that is repeated; “Do you like your job?” At first, I thought with a sense of humor, how funny.
Now, it is very clear, the question was rhetorical.

What I dislike about the company

I’ve had the advantage of working for great leadership. I may be too jaded to answer this question.
