Corporate Atmosphere Good, BUT...
Pros: location, offices, technology, svp and below staff
Cons: some executives in the top tier of the company. omg.
I worked in Boston for Cabot at their corp. offices in the Seaport District. The staff and most of the management were professional, top notch hardworking people who knew that Cabot was a great place to work. It is.
My issues with upper management came to light when I noticed the hiring of what I would term several spoiled, high maintenance executives – more... who have lead extremely privileged lives and their attitudes towards staff and their own work ethic shows this. Typical of the above was the EVP of Reinforcement Materials. I had the "privilege" of working near this person and witnessed first hand their inability to engage with and understand the non-privileged lives of regular every day working people. I overhead that he had to take a non-First Class Seat from Boston to LaGuardia and honestly, he complained about it to anyone who would listen for a full week. There were several other "new hires" with the same issue in the C Suite and just below. Very spoiled, superior, needy and incapable of handling tasks that a junior assistant knows how to do.
I mean, if you're going all out to hire someone at the executive level, make sure they can interact NORMALLY with other executives and staff at the company. No matter how smart you are, weird, rich and spoiled does not equal good by any means and should be avoided at all costs. They need to rethink their entire hiring process in the top tier. – less
