Terrible management and culture
Category Manager, Greenwood Village, CO - October 26, 2015
Management is completely unethical. They have a paper that is posted around the corporate and regional offices that says "Got Ethics?", which is supposed to instill ethical behavior, however if management does not understand the meaning of ethical behavior, then this message means nothing. My experience was a bait and switch game from the beginning. I was on a rotation and had to hold senior leadership accountable quarterly for fear they would leave me in that regional location for good. When you're employees start working for a company, the last thing they want to do is have to hold leadership accountable to their commitments. Then, when the warn act was issued that layoffs were coming, I somehow came up for a promotion. While I was going through those interviews, I was also interviewing externally. Somehow they found out I was interviewing. Management told me if I kept interviewing, I would not be considered for the promotion. I decided to be loyal to a company that didn't deserve it. I stopped interviewing externally, got promoted, and then two months later was laid off with the other Warn Act employees who were laid off. Leadership has no regard for human decency. It is a good old boy network of misfits who make statements like "That's the elephant in the room, this isn't your same dallas cowboys, feed the seeds to fruition, run the pipeline, etc, etc. referencing absolutely nothing related to executable action plans." The point is none of those things make any sense to getting things done and executing with precision. The company is completely unethical, management is terrible, and they've had this Category Manager position posted for over a year without hiring anyone. The reason is they don't know their own heads from their own behinds and can't make a decision due to their own lack of intelligence. It's the blind leading the blind.
