Upper management great, their subordinates horrible.
Pros: some really nice people who weren't around as often as i wish they were.
Cons: poor supervisor, lack of training, no sight of anything changing
Hired after a recent merger and accepted a position offered as being a customer service rep. The title change and responsibility switches were never given to me. I was suddenly a clerk and a filer and there wasn't enough work to keep me busy. I was also told "not to talk to customers" What?
Then they hired another "clerk", who suddenly became buddies with a not-so-young woman who was my supervisor. There was not enough work for 1 person, much less two.
When I approached my manager, he was sympathetic and surprised that this was going on. Frankly, I think this woman was given way too much authority and was not very mature or intelligent enough to make it work in a positive manner for the company. She had a 'tribe' of 'co-dependents' whispering and giggling like little girls.
I've since learned she has been put out of the range of her previous set of responsibilities and does not supervise anyone.
I did retain a couple of great contacts and a nice friend I keep in touch with, but other than that, when offered another job - I ran.
I opted not to take the benefits which were minimal and the cost was going to be more than I could afford. There was only minor financial contribution to my health insurance and the balance to cover me and my dependents would take almost half my paycheck.
It's a 'good old boy' network' and will probably stay that way.
