Popularity outranks ability
Corporate - general administration (Former Employee) – Winona, MN – June 17, 2019
While each location & dept differs, my experience proved to be similar to high school popularity contest. The VP favored those he spent time with socially or found attractive. If you were not included in the 'inner circle' your ideas, suggestions, questions, comments, etc were ignored & even mocked.
Workload was very intense & not possible to be completed within the day or even a reasonable timeframe; training & background resources are limited so you found yourself 'winging it' most of the time while trying to complete 16 hours of work in 8hrs hours of a day.
Employers expectations & workload far exceed your wage & benefits.
Casual dress code, paid vacation for FT employees
High turnover, limited guidance, raise reviews every other year often delayed to 3yrs.
