There is almost no job progression and the management is very disorganized and unhelpful.

It is a so-called "meritocracy", however, you will need to have enough luck to be randomly selected to do work since there is no work to do. Asking for it doesn't help.

The few times they have a crunch, they will give inspiring words to the team like angrily yelling to "get it done, no matter what it takes". Leads will arbitrarily tell you to ask questions if you need to, but will turn you away instantly if you do ask due to being too busy (all while obnoxiously yelling about the latest Walking Dead episode and their children's last bowel movement - this is not a joke).

After sitting doing nothing for a year or three, people who want to be productive and be properly paid for it will leave for better, more responsive jobs.
