Maybe it's just the department I was in?
Systems Consultant (Former Employee) – Denver – September 3, 2015
I made a few good friends here. And maybe it was the department I was in, but my leadership was sub-par. Although ever since I left, I'm told that the department leadership that I had has been significantly shifted around. The worst ones are gone. I don't know if their replacements are good or bad.
I'm told that other areas of the company are awesome to work for. And during lunch breaks everyone is pretty friendly. I would be lying if I said I hated it. It was a good stepping stone but since most of the folks there are younger, don't count on much advancement for a long long time. The management is pretty entrenched in their positions, so unless someone quits or gets terminated, or another huge expansion happens, don't count on moving a lot.
Maturing business with more streamlined processes
Mid-level management has an over-reliance on metrics instead of knowing one's team.
