Account executive, Chattanooga, TN - August 7, 2015
Along with suffering multiple rounds of layoffs in recent years, the company bolted its downtown building (after cutting coffee and parking allowances). Middle managers lacked vision and typically didn't support the lower-realm employees. Gossipy culture saw managers secretly encouraging employees to tattle on colleagues who were considering other jobs. Previous CEO had fairy-tale sales goals and freaked when numbers didn't materialize.
