Good Place, Bad Managment
no title (Former Employee) – Angola, IN – May 11, 2017
Overall I'm thankful for working at this institution and I think that it's mission and work is wonderful, however Sometimes it feels like high school children were selected to manage. They have no concept of how to treat employees beyond a vague idea of "being nice". Don't expect respect from your manager here.
They like to make you feel like you owe them even though you're the one doing the work. There is also a strange attitude of "damned if you do, damned if you don't" that you have to consistently and vigilantly watch for.
Sometimes it can feel like a social club rather than a job, and if you want to actually work, I would suggested you look elsewhere. We all enjoy having a conversation in the work place, however the amateur level of unearned egotism reflects on the intellectual dialogue of the place.
Oh, and don't ever believe they allow growth. They will promote their own students as your boss regardless if you are more qualified. This is even true if you happen to have a master's or Phd.
Overall, they do not recognize hard work as a positive thing, and they don't apply a very professional organizational structure.
Can be fun, Not too hard (could be negative), Nice at face value
Don't work here if you are a genuine professional, they don't like that
