Micro-Management at its Finest
Contract Specialist (Former Employee) – Salem, OR – June 12, 2018
It was a tough work environment, the culture was quite political, and micro-management styles were undermining and belittling, some customers were openly hostile and unprofessional. Others were professional and collaborative. But seems as if I was assigned to most of the hostile customers. I realized that I was not a good fit for that department, and resigned. My manager was fair and reasonable, but due to political culture, his hands were often tied (observation).
Good assignments, teleworking opportunities, helpful and knowledgeable coworkers, free parking, good benefits and pay. Had reasonable manager.
A couple of Team Leads undermined me in meetings, hostile customers, personal boundaries not respected, hard to contribute to team because cliques.
