Just keeps going downhill
Researcher (Current Employee) – Independence, OH – September 27, 2018
I worked for a company that was "acquired" by Sterling, giving us more stress, low pay, shorter breaks (with no compensation for the extra 40 hours' work per year they get from us), more expensive insurance that covers nothing, and lots and lots of big talk from corporate that's just a bunch of corporate babble. The technology is substandard, with constant computer issues that interfere with your work. They "fix" things by making changes that make no sense, and make things even harder than they were before. The communication from leadership is HORRIBLE; manuals are always out of date, changes in processes are told to a couple people who are in the "in" group and then conveniently not told to anyone else. And if you're in the US, you are second fiddle to the people in the Mumbai office. Most of the communication from corporate is their constant rearranging of positions and announcing a that yet another person is leaving the company. Even the CEO left. Turnover is ridiculous, with people who started all bright and excited getting discouraged and disgusted and leaving for a better job. The only thing that keeps the few long-timers here is the people, who by and large are wonderful and keep things going. The lower-level managers are good, working really hard with no recognition, while upper management have drunk the corporate Kool-Aid and they're not really interested in anything having to do with the actual work.
