Culture of cronyism and favoritism
Technical Writer (Former Employee) – London, ON – 20 July 2017
Pay and job flexibility are the high points of this job. At least in the Technical Publications department.
Technical work can be rewarding, but advancement and movement within the company is difficult if you aren't sucking up to management, or worse, if you are calling out problems or inconsistencies.
Management and HR culture is very stagnant and insular. The size and age of the company seems to have created a back scratching environment full of helping out buddies and family, to the detriment of actual innovation and listening to new, fresh, voices.
Good pay, flexible work hours
Incompetent management, Too worried about image and "optics", Passing the buck rather than getting things done right, Rewards sycophants over people willing to call out problems
