epidemiologist, research scientist in Boston, MA
upper management became too influenced by political pressures. Upper management was not versed in the understandings of the professional aspects of the programs. Decisions were often politically based at the detriment of the spirit of the project.
Although I worked on professional fulfilling projects, upper management became obsessed with assigning blame when projects faultereed. Union protection was promised yet failed dramatically when push came to shove.
I loved the work. the system that promised to protect my professional interests failed miserably at a grievance hearing and i was found to be on my own in the bureaucracy

I worked as a nursing supervisor and nurse educator in the Bureau of Hospitals. Every day was something different. We cared for a challenging patient population and I loved every minute of it. I only left the job because the commute was long.
Worst place to work they treat their employees like robots if you don't fit in they are miserable and unorganized besides benefits I would never work there !
Environment is toxic. Management is unsupportive and doesn't provide proper leadership; nevermind, giving credit for your contributions. They are not concerned with producing quality results. Rather, they are preoccupied with micromanaging experienced adults, and adding no value to improving their process, which is dysfunctional at best. You are always in the position of managing up.

Micromanaging is the theme of the office. Sadistic and unempathetic behavior is persistent. Management are untrustworthy and counter productive in ensuring a professional workplace. Quality of work is sub-par.
