Evaluate before you accept a job position if you are seeking stability

Senior leadership job positions are created prior to a high priority project launch and once projects are wrapped those positions are removed so there is no permanency or stability for those roles.
High performers do not have career growth and are not utilized to the best potential. Yes they will be over utilized but not efficiently .
Even if employess get asked to work 24/7 to meet project deliverables and employees work long hours , no one from upper management will spend any time after successful project implementation to find out career goals of these same employees .
Performance evaluations will have fake and negative comments for even top performers so they can be demoted or given a lower annual raise .
Outside companies are asked to bring process improvements in specific departments , did anyone think that outsiders are going to put their own interests first? Agenda for specialist companies is to drive their own profit . Root cause is aggressive timelines promised at times . Delivery timeline should match technical capability and assets so no its not the internal employees who let the projects derail or took longer for project implementation.
Instead of investing money in specialist outside companies who are brought to fix issues , trust your loyal individual contributor employees and please hear their voice. Don't just hear feedback from leaders. Please invest in your internal customers, provide training to your employees as they will be the key to driving success not the industry specialists who don't completely understand the business model.
Colleagues are wonderful and awesome except few.
Not a relaxed environment and toxic at times
