If you are intelligent - avoid! If you are well educated - avoid! If you are skilled - avoid! If you are friends with the manager and/or otherwise politically connected, well, then, of course it doesn't matter because all you need to succeed here is a pulse and a social security number. Cliques rule - true competence threatens the management here. If they find out that you are competent and well qualified - they will run you out the door as fast as they can. SO if you find yourself onboarded here, better dumb yourself down and fast!

They have to take a hard stand and get rid of terrible managers/directors. As long as they allow the top line to be awful to their employees, they will never have a positive work environment. HR needs to take a hard look at their people and let some of them move on.
