Company culture

Extremely political and often toxic. Managers do not treat their people well in many teams, leadership does not address bad leaders and people are hired who are not qualified to lead people who do know what they are doing. If things don't go well, people at the bottom are scapegoated and people who should be accountable are not. A lot of throwing people under the bus and marginalizing good people.

Support from Management

There are not clear goals set, expectations are high but not always clear, employees are not involved in a lot of the decisions. Managers are protective of themselves often to the detriment of their team members. Half of the teams don't even get a real yearly review, or even a quarterly conversation about their performance. No path to success to follow.

Teamwork

The individual contributors do work well together but cross team tensions can get in the way. This is mostly due to stress between team leaders and their worry about looking bad. Their teams get along well otherwise.

Level of Autonomy

We are to a certain point. We are considered execution focused, so many of our suggestions are not heeded.

Attitude towards older colleagues

There is a good amount of older workers, though their experience is not always respected. They do not get promoted as they should at times

Company culture

Culture is more important than individual knowledge.

Support from Management

You were supported if it aligned with management goals.

Teamwork

Largely, teamwork is encouraged and crucial.

Level of Autonomy

Mostly

Communication

Sometimes things are just passed down without context.

Work-Life Balance

Horrible work-life balance. You are pushed and pushed and only those that stand up and say "no" are paid attention too.
