Although this is a local company with a great product, and what would initially seem to be a great opportunity, Champion is not a professionally-managed company.
There are 2 camps within leadership, both try to avoid each other and duplicate work, create confusion amongst employees and create boundaries between people they should be leading cohesively.
I encountered a "my way or the highway" style of leadership.
There was also a very obvious and inappropriate personal relationship taking place between two of the leaders, and favouritism ran rampant.
I was hopeful as a Director of HR was hired while I was there, but she was later fired - although the initiatives she was implementing were great.
One great thing about Champion was the other employees. There is a really great group of people who work there and who stick around because they believe in the product.
Personally, I couldn't take the abuse.
Great employees. Great Products.
Management is unprofessional
