Documentation Engineer, Billerica, MA - March 9, 2016
The people (workers) at Potpourri are some of the nicest and most talented people I have worked with. The problem is management. There is no responsibility, creativity, or even the most basic knowledge in most of the managers. They sit around and have meeting after meeting, and yet are completely out of touch with the actual operations of the company. As well, the company is bloated with managers it looks more like a Chinese fire drill than effective management of staff.
In my case, the VP I worked for had completely bungled a vital company web site, and then instead of thinking outside-the-box to get it fixed, he simply made the same mistake again. No penalty, no one examining what he was doing, and even the workers would roll their eyes when the Web site got talked about in relation to his role as VP of Bungling. If you just want a job for a paycheck, and don't mind useless chaos all around you, work at Potpourri. But if you are a creative and dedicated individual, avoid this company like the plague.
