This company is a silo'd free-for-all with only a few "turned on" people. Departments operate frantically or by the skin of their teeth, leading to poor decisions, all pointing to management. They create products and operate scared, unwilling to admit what they are or how to present the product based on the legal climate, and heavy pressure to IPO from the investors.
Constant mis steps with vendors, contracts, and budgeting which typically leads to an employee being let go vs. a manager, or addressing/improving the process.
There's no advocate for the employee in HR, they get pushed around by management instead of following HR steps/protocol for issues. The majority are underpaid for their positions and everyone's over worked.
The most enjoyable part of the job has long since passed, it was years ago when the company was new. The hardest part is being a capable and high functioning employee with poor management. When a general doesn't lead their army, it's not the soldier's fault.
I learned a growing company can take the shine off the some of the best people. Loyalty means nothing here.
