a. This company is very cash poor. They are extremely behind on bills. Corporate credit cards decline on a semi-regular basis. Otto's strategy to overcome this is to get bought out by a competitor. If that happens, then cash flow will change. However, many may lose their jobs, You may be told that "things are getting better," but the financial numbers tell a different story.
b. Employee Reviews are Non Existent. Reviews do not exist at Otto (i.e. raises do not exist at Otto). The only bonus received was a gift card at Thanksgiving for a turkey, ham, or veggie plate. However, executive management receives them.
c. Employees Are Fleeing The Company- 8-9 Resignations in one months time (with more people looking)..enough said.
c. Executive Management "Us vs. Them" Mentality. There is very much an air of arrogance with executive management. It is less like a corporation and more like a clique that looks down on the people that make the company run. Also, they will rush to use you as a scapegoat. Saving emails are key.
The ONE Silver Lining
The employees (aside from executive management) are what make the company bearable. It's like being a club where there is little recognition or motivation, but having having a great group of co-workers what genuinely care for you.
no raises, no advancement
