Suggestions for improvement
- I had 3 managers during the 10 years I worked there. Two of them were fired for performance reasons, and the third manager fired me. In all three cases, I feel like the managers got their positions because they were good at their previous positions, and then promoted to management. But that doesn't make them good managers. None of them went to "management school," either as a part of their college education, or in post college training. A difference skill set is required to be good at managing people. There was a lack of communication, a lack at defining goals and expectations, and there wasn't clearly defined path to achieve those goals. I can't fix what I don't know is broken, and a yearly performance review is way to late in the year to find out that you fell short of expectations.
What I like about the company
The location in downtown Chicago. In building fitness center and cafeteria with pretty good food.
