Stressful, disorganized, bad vision
Former Employee (Former Employee) – Sugar Land, TX – April 15, 2015
I wish I would have better things to say about working at Applus RTD, but it's dysfunctional on so many levels. There is rampant favoritism, cliques, lack of support, and tolerance for inappropriate behavior in the workplace. No professionalism and bad communication, as departments do not play well with each other. It's very much an environment where you have to defend yourself and your processes regularly, as no one can work together and you get "thrown under a bus" no matter how much you support your team or the organization. Employees that are not senior management or the protected few get little to no respect, hard workers are not recognized or appreciated, and most employees do just enough work to not get fired. There is a serious lack of good work ethic here. I believe these short comings are due to a small US company trying to keep up with the demands of multiple acquisitions over a short time span. The global company has grown and acquired more US entities, but that core group of employees is still intact in the US. Their vision is limited, and their action is reactionary.
I truly hope that this company can learn and grow, but it is definitely not the environment for me.
Bad management, no support, expensive benefits
