Suggestions for improvement

  • Management has to know what to do on their part. Never should involve in technical activities. NO Centeralized focus towards company growth
  • 31.Oct 2017
  • Employee

Company culture

More management driven

Support from Management

Very poor

Level of Autonomy

Freedom to work independently is never happened. As management drives the wheel and change your views always

Work-Life Balance

Was very poor. As deadlines are always in-realistic

Challenging Work

Challenging work is always you compete within your own organization team to prove who is best. Even this driven my management.

  • 23.Oct 2017
  • Employee

Company culture

Culture is two faced, they speak about being a "family" and "team" yet pit employee against employee and management cares not about their employees as you can be easily replaced.

Support from Management

Management was never around, constantly in meetings, unfriendly, corrupt in the fact that they covered for department favorites and seemed more interested in trying to advance their own position than helping employees under them. They did not know how to do the jobs of the departments they managed and went very much by the most extreme interpretation of the policy handbook. Even though the term "management discression" was in the policy, they did not waver regardless of a persons individual circumstances.
