Not a place for internal services careers
Assistant (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – April 18, 2017
This job is enjoyable because of the direct team I support and the variety of work I get to be involved in. My thoughts, ideas and work is appreciated at the level right above me that I support. Unfortunately, there are several levels above that who do not show professional respect or appreciation of the talent within the internal services team (HR, M&S, L&D, Recruiting, Admins).
The culture here creates insecurity and doubt for internal services employees. Leadership talks about valuing employees while constantly changing the business model and outsources jobs as much as possible. The benefits are also changing and leaving employees with tough decisions to make about healthcare, which at a firm this size, should not be an issue.
Leadership typically likes to behave in the manner of "Do as I say, not as I do"; meaning, they want to talk about a positive culture but do not necessarily act in such a manner.
