SENIOR CONSULTANT (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 1, 2015
Hostile work environment which causes anxiety among many team members. Certain 'fraternities' have self serving interests and
are not responsive to escalation for project needs and support as needed. Employees are micro-managed and made to feel as though they must adhere to policies that are not outlined in the employee handbook. Ever-changing and dysfunctional.
Pros
Challenging work enviroment
Cons
Little opportunity for professional development
