Veneer of Friendliness Hides Toxic Environment
IT Desktop Support (Former Employee) – Brentwood, NY – July 2, 2016
Toxic work environment. Was falsely accused of using a racial slur and not even given due process to defend myself. Intimidating atmosphere of subtle threats and monitoring. No protection of employee rights other than the usual zero tolerance of any type of harassment (except when management decides to harass YOU). Meanwhile, if you UTTER a word that someone FEELS is offensive, you're finished. Ludicrous, communist-style environment. On top of that, no cohesive training program. All "make it up as you go along", so-called training. One person tells you to do something one way, another tells you to do it differently. Then you are reprimanded for not doing it the way they just decided you should do it, until they change their minds again. Unworkable learning environment.
