Great company, but lacks work / life balance and consistency
Corporate Associate (Former Employee) – Coraopolis, PA – June 16, 2017
Depending on what department/team you work with, experiences will differ. Work is fast paced. Many departments are very top heavy; appears to be too many Managers, Directors and VP's, creating tension on cross-departmental projects when decisions need to be made quickly. Excessive meetings lead to inconsistent planning and confusion when aligning expectations. Some departments insist on operating in a silo, while other business partners depend on transparency to stay on target to achieve project goals. This hampers productivity and, in some cases, causes delays due to inefficient communication and unwillingness to "show each others hand". During onboarding, emphasis is placed on a healthy work/life balance. However, again, depending on department, this has the potential to disappear quickly. Long hours, overwhelming meeting calendars and heavy workloads become the "normal expectation", making successful results rarely recognized by leadership.
