Support from management
Direct supervisor unavailable, listened with half an ear (she thought her multi-tasking was impressive) and a blind eye
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.
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’
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.
The office after 3 years had no presence in the community, as an example: I requested to have them listed on Google maps.
Revolving door. Unfortunately, they pay $1,000’s of dollars for training.
The sink didn’t work since the office was opened (3 yrs) until I requested property manager to repair.
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
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.
