I hear good things, outside of the Community Team
Senior Social Media Specialist (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – November 28, 2016
Overall Company Culture
Cons are pretty solid, and much of the company is great!
That said, the community team are a great group of people, but there are some much needed in roads that need to be made with working collaboratively with the Marketing Team. Ego, and personal politics get in the way with content going out in a timely manner as well as providing growth and opportunity from the top down.
Ironically, the company's core values of: Check Your Ego at the Door, Breathe Innovation, and Your Voice; Your Company are left at the wayside or Big Egos, Doing What Has Always Worked, and Stifling Creativity.
Zero training on company products in place or outlined and it's essential to the job.
A LOT of politics and personal agendas and grudges get in the way of a meaningful dialogue. Don't expect any kind of help with issue resolution of any kind regardless how far up the chain you go.
Hope you enjoy sugar beverages, because you'll be expected to drink the Kool-Aid regularly.
ADVICE TO MANAGEMENT:
Review the company core values. No seriously, go back and review.
In case you missed this one: CHECK YOUR EGO AT THE DOOR.
Provide actual training, outlined and adhered to.
Brainstorm with other departments and keep the lines of communication OPEN.
Drop the cliques and personal cheerleaders.
Great company, great benefits, competitive pay, free lunches
Personal politics, Inflated egos, no training, zero help in issue resolution
