Operational quagmire. Way over staffed in some areas, so people are just in job protection mode most of the time. Lots of turnover, and everyone just trying to keep their heads down so they don't get lopped off. Some smart people there among the worker bees but they just keep quiet as well because they've seen so many get fired or laid off or whatever the phrase is for that month. Too much promotion of managers from within with little to no experience in actual management skills so all they do is sit around and hold meetings with one another, pass emails and make sure senior management thinks everybody is happy. Very cliquish environment and huge disconnect from what it is sold as when you go through the interview process. It's like a cultish, zombie environment with everybody smiling and pretending they are happy but then griping about it in private. Everyone walks around scared to make any suggestions or attempt to change the culture of the status quo because then they will be fired or driven to quit by their manager. They should only promote people who can prove they have management skills and give them testing and training at least once a year as well. They really need to train the middle managers in management skills, employee and team success.
The test development side of the house may be better, but I wouldn't know, I left before I got to know much about that side. Since it's a smallish town and a college town, not too much else available for employment so people are kind of stuck unless they want to move to another city.
Really nice campus, gym, food. Good benefits
Need to clean house for any management below the C level
