This is a company that is trying to transition from a mid-sized company into a large one. They really don't care much about anything other than what the spreadsheets say. To that end, they have zero interest in employee development. There is zero training and zero opportunities for advancement. They hire outside the company for very nearly every position and don't even tell us they're looking for positions senior to our current level. While I was there, they assigned EVERYBODY an "employee level" that basically just puts you in a specific box. It's nearly impossible to climb out of that box and advance.
I was there nearly 10 years and found that as time went on, they were doing everything possible to get rid of the long term employees and replace us with cheaper, disposable people who would stay for a couple years and then move on.
"Leadership" if you want to call it that, came from England. They wanted no input from us colonists whatsoever and if we offered any, we were silenced almost immediately.
No good things to say about the Atlanta office with the exception of the presence of a hard working crew of staff scientists
Lack of diversity
Demoralizing business practices (requires billability exceeding 100%)
Several of the best staff left due to poor people management
Human resources lead at Atlanta office lacked integrity
