Lack of support from management, inadequate compensation for value added.
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Superior, CO – September 22, 2014
The best part of the job was the people, it was a great environment to work in and the team members were goal oriented and hard working. Promotions and salary increases were all arbitrary; if you want to work here and move up, be prepared to play politics. Management's only function is to scrutinize budgets and finances, but not to address real shortfalls and solve problems. From them, receiving support is always reactionary and never proactive. Even if you ask for help long before you need it, you won't get it until there's a major client escalation and revenue lost or credits issued. Jobs are increasingly being outsourced to India--working with the remote office in India is hit and miss, you will end up training new project managers there yourself (over the phone) and you may end up training 3-4 people before any of them stay long-term. Really high turnover, and lots of rework. Lately, management has made it their business to chastise project managers for being 5 minutes late or for taking lunches longer than 30 minutes, without much regard for the fact that many of us are in the office past 7 p.m. and working from home on weekends. There used to be autonomy and trust between management and project managers, but it's turned into babysitting without purpose. Do yourself a favor, don't work here.
Poor management, no advancement opportunities, no flexible hours, poor compensation for the responsibilities
