Teamwork to complete projects not to value diverse ideas

Highly skilled workforce

Attitude towards older colleagues

Company values highly experienced workforce. You can work until you are 75 unless you get laid off once your project ends and funding terminated

Company culture

If only it were truly like they write it up to be.

Support from Management

My personal experience was NO support from management. Was dropped off at my desk on day one by someone that wasn't even on my team. Four months later, my manager still hasn't had one conversation with me about what I'm supposed to be doing, do I have the tools needed to do my job, etc.


Teams here are very segmented and seem to only look out for themselves. There is a lot of TALK about teamwork and collaboration, but it never materializes.
