There was a lot of cliquiness between employees. Management worshiped people with seniority and we’re afraid to correct or reprimand them, even when they were in the wrong.
Very little transparency between management and employees, as well as between employees in different departments. We weren’t allowed to be transparent with the sales reps (employed by the same company) about a lot of things, and were often instructed to give them partial truths or not respond.
I got “talked to” once about saying I was the most qualified to train someone on a process that I had personally overhauled and wrote the training guide on because others, who weren’t trained on the process, had more senority. Your intelligence and initiative mean nothing here. They are looking for a drone to keep their head down and mouth shut.
On the bright side the pay was great. There were no set goals, hard dead lines, and my team was never micro managed.
