Great people, bad management
IT (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – August 27, 2014
The typical day was unique, mostly enjoyable, the work itself was rewarding, and humble in most ways. My field requiring me to work with all departments, I could not say that I have ever had a better group of end users (minus management). I felt working there everyday was a bit like getting to travel meeting the diverse mindsets, and our customers. Management left something to be desired.. After the reformation of the new management, the company became quickly to that of the Egyptian empire. Morale crashed, people became increasingly worried, people quit / fired, positions eliminated.
The mid level management fell shortly after that, followed by the implementation of luacris policies. Write ups became a new company practice for the smallest of things. Write ups for "disruptive moral" was an actual write up.. The company has or had wonderful people that worked there, all dedicated, hard working, good nature, talented people.
The VP level of the company is a complete and utter joke.. You'd find better management in a zoo exhibit. Solutions that would save the company money are ignored, logical business practices thrown aside, and customers unhappy with new policies set into place without consulting or informing customers.
There is way too much to go into detail, other than to say, the company's failures were the complete and utter fault of the management team. The company would have done well if it had not ran away its senior employees, exiled its customers, and made the notion that the company was un replaceable in the market.
great co-workers, diverse people
low pay, horrible management, dirty underhanded management practices
