Are you a Current or Former Employee? Former job since 2014
Suggestions for improvement
- If you reach retirement as an employee, you get health insurance for life. Consequently no one ever quits. The old guard needs to be shaken up, people need to learn to be more progressive, old habits need to be broken. In any other environment, lay offs would have weeded out a lot of the problems.
I like about the employer
Telecommuting. That's pretty much it.
I dislike about the employer
While I think there were better depts, mine was sluggish, obstructionist and very uncomfortable for women. i have never seen so many people move so slowly to accomplish so little. Meetings were very democratic, which at first seemed nice, everyone had a chance to voice an opinion. But it resulted in gridlock. 6 months later the same group would be meeting to argue over the same things, no progress. No one in a management position would make a decision and provide guidance. The pay was great, telecommuting was nice, but it was frustrating to accomplish so little because you were dependent on others that would not move forward. I was there 18 months and I really cannot point to anything I was proud of doing. I found myself feeling bored and uncaring of results I could not influence so I knew I could not stay.
