Support from management

My manager before I left was great. Prior to that it was a disaster. Managers don’t support their employees. They take orders from uppers and pass direction down to the employees. It’s a “do what your told and don’t ask questions” environment.

Teamwork

Individual teams were close and worked well together, but teams didn’t get along or mesh well with other teams within the company.

Freedom to work independently

No micromanagement but you better be doing what they told you do. No making decisions on your own about how to get things done without going through multiple levels of approval...which as a Project Manager makes your job very difficult.

Internal Communication

Departments do not communicate with each other. Everyone on a different page. Difficult to get full cooperation or compromise.

Career Development

Not a whole lot of promotion from within

Overall compensation for your work

Below average for Project Management work. Typical starting salary of $38k. Some PMs coming in would get offered more based on their so-called “experience”. It’s a good start for a new kid coming out of college to get PM experience.

Work-Life Balance

I regularly worked 12 hour days. Had a salary position so didn’t get compensated for additional work. It was expected that you worked as many hours as it took to get the job done.

Job Security

As long as you followed the “rules”

Inclusive / Diverse

Not a lot of ethnic diversity

Company Culture

Culture has a lot of room for improvement. Currently there is a lot of micro management and sticking to old, outdated ways. There are signs of improvement but it will take a while before the culture is marginally improved.

Support from management

Leadership does their best to support but are often too busy addressing customer issues or working with others in the company which leads to last minute over reactions.

Teamwork

Very team oriented within the department. Honesty with managers is respected but hardly appreciated or listened to.

Internal Communication

Communications between the departments needs to be improved. You find yourself at odds with the support departments and this can all be traced back to communications and expectations.

Career Development

Not much room for growth. Managers try to help with addressing growth but it's mainly all talk and often no action.

Overall compensation for your work

Salaries can be improved like most places, although you can renegotiate at your yearly review. Not too much in the way of benefits, you get paid and some vacation but other than that, that's it.

Office / Work Environment

We work in a typical open office cube farm, you can overhear almost everyone's phone conversations. Some are much louder than others, headphones are greatly advised.

Environmental Friendliness

Not really applicable but we do not push the environmental factor with customers much, more financially driven.

Work-Life Balance

There is a lot of pressure to come in early and leave late. You are looked down upon by others if you leave at 5, some call this leaving early. Management hasa hard time balancing allowing time off and no, you cannot simply ask for time off any time. Hours are suppose to 8-5, more days than not we work 7:30-6/7.

Company Image

There are a lot of unhappy employees who regularly deride the company. Seems par for the course but the company does little to change this.

Job Security

Our managers try to set everything up do you can be replaced should you quit or get let go. This doesn't happen often but is needed so customers are not impacted.

Handicapped Accessibility

The building is very handicap friendly, no obstacle for anyone with phsyical impairments.

Challenging Work

You feel great the first few times projects go well and the customer is happy. It then becomes repetitive and boring. Not much room to keep this from happening.

Inclusive / Diverse

New ideas are not supported much, managers try to stick with antiquated, cheap tactics.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Invest more in employee satisfaction and updated IT systems.

What I like about the company

Honesty, it gets the bills paid and you learn about a new industry. The particular department I work in is not known for employee retention and is close to 100% turnover of coordinators.

What I dislike about the company

Sees employees as easily replaceable and will not invest, which is not different than most places. Also refuses to call us project managers because of education and salary expectations.
