NEON project poorly managed
Field Technician (Former Employee) – Various – July 19, 2017
Work-life balance inconsistent, depends on manager as policies are unclear. Empty promises to raise pay or at least title for field technicians. Benefits under Battelle less than original award. Job advancement for field technicians reaches a short glass ceiling. Management of field operations and other teams care only about their own image, incestuous and lacks care and regard for welfare of employees. Morale remains low despite many years of discussion to improve. Retention poor as a result of the all of the above, and retraining therefore inefficient. Terrible communication with and between departments. Managers have poor training or experience as managers. Not tons has changed from when NEON, Inc. used to run the project except a little more communication to the group by the Battelle CEO. Too bad such a great project with hard-working coworkers continues to be managed poorly. Unless things actually do change, I cannot recommend this project.
Great project concept, benefits decent
Poor management, communication, advancement, morale
