Professional I (Former Employee) – Golden – January 28, 2013
This position is with a quasi governmental agency: funding is through DOE and therefore attracts and keeps mostly slackers. Management is paid very well; works very little; screws up often, and blames others routinely. If you work hard you will be made to work even harder...if you don't work hard and cover for your bosses’ poor performance you will be rewarded. Management is not held accountable: bad behavior is rewarded; and, good behavior is punished. Management avoids work at all costs: they push work off onto their staff; they arrive late; they take two hour lunch breaks; they leave early; and, they commission spies to cover their inadequacies. If you try to mention, to their boss, all the inequalities and shenanigans that go on with management - you will be punished. If management makes a grave error they will blame staff. There is nothing staff can do about it as upper management covers for lower management and vise-versa. Management will then systematically give individuals that speak-out or “trouble-makers” poor performance reviews and those individuals will then ultimately leaver or be fired for speaking out. Everyone is so afraid of speaking out and therefore if you rock the boat you will have no allies. Be very careful.
