Stressful management style
Subject Matter Expert (Former Employee) – New York City – February 21, 2015
I worked from my hotel room first thing in the morning and four different offices during the day managing consultants managing $1B in federal recovery dollars for the City of New York (NYC). My workday never ended and I worked 14 weeks straight without a break; I was expected to keep jumping higher and higher for Hagerty. I billed 60 a hours a week but worked many more. Hagerty management was in over their heads with the enormity of the tasks at hand following Hurricane Sandy and did not have the trained staff or took the time to train the new hires.
I learned not to trust Hagerty Consulting and to not go to work for a company on their first contract in a new arena.
The hardest part was to be forced to falsify documentation that would later be presented to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for reimbursement.
The most enjoyable aspect of the assignment was teaching others how the FEMA policies' could best be used to maximize the recovery funds available from FEMA and, to design mitigation measures to minimize the possibility of future storm damages to the public infrastructure for the Department of Sanitation and Department of Transportation under direction of the Office of Management and Budget for NYC.
$100 per hour plus travel and per diem expenses.
Illegal activities and being lied to by Hagerty management.
