This is a big company with a lot to learn about culture, employee coaching and development, and that success is your people, not your P&L. The culture is ego and hierarchy based and you will not succeed if you don’t play the game. The company claims to want fresh ideas and innovative changes, but the executive level employees are too busy protecting their own hides by taking the ideas of those below them and claiming them as their own. After all, everyone has to show value add.
The company has many mid-level managers and staff employees who are solid thinkers who want better for the company and its employees. Executive level managers are too insecure to allow their underlings to make too much impact.
Envision is the marriage of two established companies, but despite the merger annoucement in 2016, the two continue to operate very separately, with the larger company’s policies overriding the policies of the smaller, which unfortunately doesn’t work well, despite a plethora of meetings, workgroups, and data that foreshadowed this well before the actual merger happened. There has been little to no integration across the two companies, and no roadmap or milestone estimates are shared with the employees.
Despite the company’s efforts to streamline budgets, VP and SVP level execs spend on everything but investing in their people. Engagement Survey results reflected this, and to date no meaningful changes or dialogues are happening to improve the morale of staff, or to show that the owners and executive operators in Nashville care about anything other than money.
