I spent years at this company trying to fight through the politics and red-tape to do my job. While lip-service was paid to my department, the constant in-fighting and jockeying for position at the Executive level was devastating to company morale and careers. The sheer amount of waste at the highest levels is staggering, and the mass exodus of talent that started when I left is continuing to this day.
Tragically, without intervention by the board, I don't see this company ever improving. Only the independence of their investments area keeps this place afloat.
