Great Managers, Poor Pay and Advancement
Annonymized Field Position (Current Employee) – California – September 26, 2017
Mid-level management is great to employees, and helps to maintain a healthy and understanding work-life balance. However, pay is too low for the Degrees and years of experience which many employees hold, and advancement opportunities are nearly non-existent. Some of the company's best employees at a given level are not rewarded beyond marginal yearly pay increases over peers. Nearly all employees within same level receive same bonus, dissuading and disheartening the best employees. Upper management consistently states that the company's success is due to all of the employees out in the field, but does not actually do anything to reward these employees, and instead hires other high-level management positions from different teams, wasting resources that could otherwise be used to train, develop and promote from within.
