Assimilate - Resistance is Futile
Business Segment Manager (Former Employee) – Clearwater, FL – August 9, 2015
I can honestly say - with more than 30 years of experience - that this is truly one of the strangest places I've worked.
I'll take these one at a time:
Job Work/Life Balance
Be prepared to work overtime (without being paid for it). It will be expected. Do more and more and more, with less and less and less. ANYTHING to bolster their precious Operating Income (OI). Someone leaves? No problem.. just divvy up the work to the remaining, already over-tasked people.
The pay and benefit package was excellent.
It's secure enough as long as you keep your head down fit in.
Advancement? Sure... all you have to do is stick around for 10 years, getting whipped into compliance... you'll advance.
By no means should you EVER out-perform your boss or - god forbid - have the audacity to actually disagree with him/her. They hate that ...no matter how many years of experience you have doing what you do, or how successfully you smash their annual goals.
To "fit in" you'll have to assimilate into their definition of "culture." They are very proud of that at CW. In short, you will be very happy if you are a politically correct, hypersensitive, liberal bureaucrat.
So... after two years of "not fitting in" the CW culture and working for an ineffective, unappreciative leadership team, I resigned.
Life is too short to be a drone.
great benefits, good pay
poor leadership, mired in politcally correct bureaucracy
