Trust in leadership is diminishing quickly due to lack of communication, transparency and support.
Support from management
Leadership preaches they want feedback and desire 'healthy conflict' but teammates are ultimately punished in some way for disagreeing with leadership.
Depends on the teammate and why they work there. There is an increasing trend of teammates being employed there as a 'job' rather than supporting veterans. Sad.
Freedom to work independently
At WWP you'd better be ready to work on your own. They take work from others and give it to higher performing teammates with no raises or plans to redistribute the work at a later date.
There are regularly scheduled team calls and 'huddles' but they rarely hold value.
Men are paid more than women for the same position.
WWP offers professional development courses, but they don't get you anywhere in this organization regardless of how stellar of a job you're doing.
Overall compensation for your work
Initially fair compensation, until the extra work piles on. Really competitive benefits.
Over time, the organization has seemed to take a turn to being a business in ALL aspects rather than serving veterans as it was intended. There's more focus on 'numbers' than what is best for long term success for veterans.
Taking vacation puts you further behind. Also, since you're likely taking on more work than you were hired for, that is made even worse.
Programs change and they will 'usually' offer you a new position, but it may not benefit you. If you're not in a hub office, your options are strictly limited. The hub model has not been recieved positively by existing teammates in any respect.
Not challenging in a good way. Compassion fatigue is a major concern and those in leadership positions are ignoring the issues.
Suggestions for improvement
- Those in leadership positions need to reevaluate their perspective on ego and get back to basics.
