Suggestions for improvement
- Becoming more progressive and in line with changing society
College like, but very conservative.
Annual goals not realistic for employees - therefore annual employee performance suffers - allows them to keep annual increases very small.
Management looks over your shoulder, you are not fully trusted to be a professional and do your job.
You will go nowhere if you don't fit the preferred image and schooling. With that said, they really want middle management so that is path of least resistance. They have a company wide training program called The Edge so you can get there. That is the employee graveyard, very hard to rise above and only small pay increase over people you are responsible for.
The culture in the technology area is one of fear - everyone is afraid of repercussions so no one speaks out about the problems. It's all about CYA - the leadership team makes bad decisions but doesn't admit it even when they know they did something wrong. They have no qualms about treating individuals badly when they want to make themselves look good.
The leadership team talks a good story about transparency, and telling everyone to speak out, but there are definitely consequences when it is something they don't want to hear.
