Incompetent management, ridiculous HR.
Infrastructure Support Configuration Analyst (Former Employee) – Eugene, OR – June 3, 2015
When I began my career at PacificSource, I truly believed this was where I would retire one day, It really was a company that cared about family, community and it's employees. I spent over a decade, in three departments, worked my way to the top of two, developed new policies, procedures, was part of their amazing mentor program, was a trainer, did everything I could to better myself and the company I cared so deeply about.
Then the company, career, and people I cared so much about began to change...
They canceled the mentor program, it was no longer important. There was restructuring, people were moved into positions of authority with absolutely no training, they say 'the best way to test a person's character is to give them power' (Abraham Lincoln) well believe me, many were tested and many failed, but they remained in places of authority. You could no longer go to your 'Supervisor' for help with issues because so many of them had no idea how to do the job of their subordinates. It was made clear to me I would not receive a promotion I had earned for over a year but yet it was given to others in my department who could not perform my job, favorites, as mentioned in some of the previous reviews. So discouraging how the workplace has come to resemble high school.
Though I have to say, nothing was more discouraging than to watch the 'weeding out' of employees. So many long term employees are no longer with the company, why?
It doesn't take a genius to find the common factors, so disappointing. So glad this institution is no longer part of my life!
