Despotism and heavy favoritism
former employee (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – December 29, 2015
Management consists of bosses who hide in offices - they're not leaders. With little to no actual managerial experience (outside of their current employment), they exhibit very large ego's. All compete for attention and favor, hence management will consistently steal credit for other peoples' hard work. If you're not management, then don't expect adequate compensation - even when you deliver exceptional performance. This is trickle-down, credit-usurping micro-management at it's absolute worst.
Hence, turnover has increased exponentially within the last 5-10 years. Annual performance review hits and job security are both employed as looming motivational threats. There is little to no advancement opportunity, as VWCU prefers to hire people from outside over growing their internal employees' careers.
Every 3-5 years a new corporate motivational program is force-fed to employees, and management uses cheerleader-style motivational tactics.
The best part about VWCU is the Board of Directors matching 401k donations up to 7%. Pay scales are somewhat competitive, but slightly lower than average overall. This modification by HR is intentional. Management however, is paid lavishly.
They do offer an HSA healthcare plan - dental/vision are options.
If you keep your head down, placate the ego of management, and don't desire advancement in career or financial gain, then you may do well here.
401k matching, decent HSA healthplan
