Company Culture

Fear is what influence the behavior at work.

Support from management

Managers are so complacent and disengaged.

Freedom to work independently

Not enough space to put how unfair the work load is.

Internal Communication

If you are not part of management, you fund out information from other employees outside of your unit.

Gender Equality

I believe that they actually do.

Company Image

Lots of employees feel that they are trapped and the specific location of the Smithsonian where I worked, people call it the last stop before you are fired.

Job Security

Senior Management feels that anybody off the street can come in and do your job.

Challenging Work

No.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Remove complacent management staff.

Na

What I dislike about the company

How they make you feel as a person and a employee.
