Pros: good computing resources and office space
Cons: mobbing, bullying
- Changing Goalposts:
Joined organization after lots of industry experience, hiring manager told "Sky is the limit". Within a year asked to "Stay within boundary". Basically managers protect their turf by bullying.
- Weak HR:
Never met Company HR even after recruitment. Apeared to be always on vacation!
- Weak Managers:
techno-jargon savvy but bad people managers. Bottom layers learn to flock in groups surviving by mobbing. There is usually a victim, who will be targeted with Rumors, trash talk, misinterpreting,raising voice, sidelining and even verbal abuse. Manager instead of containing the situation went along with the mob.
Lack of leadership
Happened to ask my manager once what he meant by leadership:
for him it was just getting things done, getting the foot in the door and was even "ready to swipe the floor" for money! And he expects to earn a fat paycheck until he retires. No passion about the job, no vision .. No wonder the company has only 3000 employees over a period of 25 years!
Long Term Cons:
Long term did not look a place you would want to stay, unless you have nowhere else to go. If you plan stay long term the skills would not match with the peers elsewhere in the industry.No wonder you have several long timers stuck with the company doing not so relavant activity!
Relieved to be finally out of the mess..
