Company Culture

I was once told by the HR manager as I was addressing the unfair treatment of certain employees that it was simply the culture, and I needed to decide if I was okay with it or not. The blatant favoritism and political game play is abhorrent. Those who stand up against it are black listed and ultimately leave, are let go, or spend the rest of their career with the court in the same position with no hope of any advancement.

Support from management

My immediate supervisor (operations department) was incompetent as a manager and would do and say inappropriate things that would affect the staff negatively. When issues were taken to HR it would be the staff that suffered in the long run, up to and including experiencing retaliation from the supervisor. In some instances it would ultimately result in an employee losing their job, yet the terrible supervisors/managers remain. Worst managerial staff I've ever experienced.

Teamwork

It was difficult to maintain any type of team based atmosphere because of the divisive behaviors of the supervisor. Staff were putted against each other and no one trusted anyone. It was more like 'Survivor' than a place of work. There were individuals in other departments that understood the importance of team work, and I worked well with those people. We were the minority. In fact I am speaking of three people. Three, in a place that employed hundreds and hundreds.

Internal Communication

Management only communicates with other management, employees are in the dark. Management communicates by making examples of certain people and scaring staff into keeping a their heads down and not speaking up. All training has been eliminated and the supervisor is in charge of directing employees in their work. The supervisor who has aspirations for promotion and keeps knowledge to himself so as to make himself more valuable in management's eyes.

Gender Equality

If you are male you will do fine. If you are male and can manipulate people and have no self respect or conscience you will do even better. If you are a young, charming, good looking male with those qualities, you will own that place, or at least be promoted even if you're not qualified, and get away with not doing your job.

Job Security

You will have job security if you are a young charming male, or if you keep your head in the sand and aren't outraged by the 'culture' you are expected to endure.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The only way that place will ever be a great place to work is if they start from the top and fix the problem. The Judges have no idea what really goes on because they are isolated from all except chambers staff. Unfortunately, I don't foresee any change, because the ones who speak up disappear. Upper management has controlled with fear, and it's working. The Clerk of Court will be retiring in the next few years, and the person in line for that position will maintain the same 'culture' that has always been. Because that's how he got where he is in the first place. It's a terrible, miserable place to work and all I can say is run. Run as far and as fast as you can.
