Unproductive and limiting place to work
PROJECT MANAGER/SR. BA (Current Employee), New York, NYMay 17, 2012
Pros: health care, aflac
Cons: inflexible and limited minded management
The Department's high level management is highly focused on face time and punctuality while overlooking productivity and quality. A typical work day involves communicating up the chain of command and waiting for instructions and clearance to move forward.

Co-workers are focused on who has rank to give them orders and which orders they will follow.

The – more... hardest part of the job is getting the job done with all the impediments that are placed by management and the overall attitude of the staff viewing new comers as threats. – less
