Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay more than lip service to diversity. Offer incentives to more than just upper management ranks. Focus more on the quality of the work that gets done instead of face time at the office. Offer more telecommuting and job sharing options.

What I like about the company

The team I was on could be fun and supportive most of the time. We felt we worked at a high level and we wanted to perform our work to the best of our abilities. I was often proud of our successes.

What I dislike about the company

Management feels entitled and doesn't understand how hard the average employee works. Repeated rounds of downsizing have led to morale problems. The company keeps asking for more and more work out of fewer and fewer people and then management can't understand why mistakes get made. Women and minorities are essentially nonexistent in ranks of management.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Show your employees that you want to have them around. Spend some money for talent. The little people need to make a living too. There are other jobs out there (almost all of them) willing to pay up to today's standards and then some. Putnam is not one of those places. Bring back some decent benefits.

What I like about the company

Location, the people in my department

What I dislike about the company

Minimal merit raises for over 10 years. No room for growth and managers did not back up employees. Stressed work environment. Perks and benefits grew thinner and thinner over the years. It cost me more to work there than I was making. Salary was way below average for many, many years and I felt I was taken advantage of.
