ESP is the classic example of a small mom & pop shop that has grown to big for its own britches and is now a disheveled mess. Management is disorganized and chaotic. No-one outside of owners and leading project managers has any idea what is going on at the company level. No communication whatsoever with staff regarding future projects, work projections, long term plans, satellite offices, profits, opportunities for advancment, etc. Everything is top top secret.
Company owners and HR staff are loud and intrusive asking odd personal questions of the staff that are border line harassment. Very very odd work culture. Feels as if everyone is walking on egg shells at this place.
Department heads talk the talk about wonderful opportunities for advancement and flash goodies (mediocre salary increases) during reviews, but advancement opportunities never materialize. Project managers are mostly incapable of delegating. Awful work life balance as a result. PM's do not listen to production staff and place unreasonable work deadlines on staff. They constantly tell individual staff members how lucky we are to have jobs and how bad working conditions are at other companies.
Okay benefits; company is growing having opened new locations recently; nice office in Fort Mill.
overtime, poor communication, disorganized, stress level
