I came in as a manager for the corporate office and was quickly swept off my feet. There were lots of "great jobs" and "keep it up, you're doing great" mentions for a few months, but at the same time there wasn't much of the same as a whole division.
I noticed 6 months in that communication on almost all levels of my division were last minute, making it hard to plan and hard to perform, yet somehow, it was easy to point the finger to the problems since everyone in my small division that moved on had the same point-of-view to what needed to change.
There lacked structure, team communication, working as a group (and remaining a group when things go wrong), and trust. No one in my division knew what other projects were going on except their own. There were barely team meetings, except when something was wrong, or due the next day and needed assigning.
Benefits were almost double what I paid for my family at other companies, including incentives/discounts, which added to the disappointment.
For those that are applying, carefully consider the team you could be working with. Look for structure, cohesion, experts vs non-experts vs those that think they are experts, and pay attention to tenure of the leaders vs their team. Also look at the benefit package up front.
