Less than ideal working environment...
Architect (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 25, 2016
My coworkers were awesome to work with; very knowledgeable and easy to engage. People in the trenches genuinely cared for one another. Management needed to provide more guidance and opportunity for career enhancement, however. There was often a feeling of being directionless and having no control over your situation. Went to my manager often with ideas how to contribute, and he supported me, but leadership over his pay grade didn't give him the resources to help the team grow like they stated they wanted us to. Sales leadership was notoriously absent while revenues were lagging badly, layoffs resulted, and morale was low, making it a very difficult work environment to go to on a daily basis.
Lack of direction, silos
