Good people, management unwilling or unable
Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto – 14 April 2018
A constantly changing environment with little to no consistent direction. Info-Tech has a knack for attracting talented people but not retaining them. People either learn to game the system (sales especially), befriend the CEO and rapidly progress through the company, or get completely disheartened and leave.
The CEO is incapable of relinquishing control and competent managers are severely limited in what they can accomplish. Constant changes in direction have left the company's research product a shell of its former self. Management realized that the only way left to demonstrate value is to throw overworked, under-prepared analysts in front of clients at every possible opportunity. The fact that these analysts continue to bend over backwards and pull off miracles is the only thing keeping the company afloat.
Pros: Get exposure to a wide variety of clients and quickly build the skills you need to move on to a better job.
Cons: Every day the management finds new ways to leave you beat-down and dejected.
