Suggestions for improvement
- The P.C. influences, and the manner in which HR worked so hard at protecting certain persons in place over those who were truly valuable resources made it difficult to prevail in any way. The culture was being manipulated, and the upper levels of control were not responsive, despite being instructed otherwise from the main office The disconnect made for inevitable casualties, me being one of them. The bottom line was suffering in the poor economy at the time and they geared their rectifying losses through attrition. Unfortunately, there was a method of banding together to get rid of people in ways that they thought would mean there would be no blow back, as in the cases of bringing legal action against them. Very poor method of operation. They need to clean house in a big way, but I don't see that happening.
What I like about the company
I got to meet personnel at the main offices in Dallas and I felt that I was appreciated there. It seemed like a company I had been looking to work for all my life. They seemed genuinely interested in my participation and input, and they seemed supportive about my career going forward.
What I dislike about the company
Once I returned from Dallas back to California, there was a palpable disconnect. Yet. they asked me to hang in there, to have patience for their growing pains, as they called them. I did everything I could to contribute positively, but it seemed useless in the presence of a man who held his position by the sway he commanded in his small circle of people who had his back against the company plan. I wanted to think of it as an isolated experience, but the group of them went to work getting rid of me. If I had been able to pursue it, I should have sued them for wrongful termination.
