- TargetX08.Dec 2016
TargetX used to be a great place to work, but is now under new management. The new management is about "winning" at all costs. What used to be a fun place with a friendly atmosphere is now a cut-throat blame factory for missed deadlines and failed projects.
Support from management
The goals are clear, the expectations are not realistic.
This was the BEST place for teamwork when I started here. This wasn't a team, it was a family. But as the new management has piled on the work, teamwork has all but evaporated.
Freedom to work independently
This was the case when I left. I now understand that it is no longer the case.
Communication is good, even great!
There's plenty of room to move up, because people are jumping ship quarterly. Some people I assumed were "lifers" recently left the company.
Office / Work Environment
The Philadelphia HQ is adequate, but too noisy when everyone is in the office (working from home is encouraged). There are frequent problems with the email (Google) and network outages.
It used to. Now it pretty much wants you to work 12-16 hours a day, 6 days a week.
I *was* very proud to work here.
The work was challenging and rewarding while I was there because you were supporting your teammates. Working hard felt good. But when the hard work didn't let up, and got doubled and re-doubled, I left.
Inclusive / Diverse
No problems with diversity!
