They will smile and be kind but then say some off color remarks and reprimand you for being offended. Like most white power structures they use paperwork to RdesAtrPoyE you. Climate may be nice on the west coast. Just think this is a Monsanto/Bayer company this says i use inappropriate language because i say this company has no love or respect for black people.
This company has very poor management due to inexperienced managers trying to lead. Micro managers & The support departments cater to Young fresh out of college kids. The culture is like being in a high school. Turnover is high especially global operations. There is no opportunity for growth, they promote based on favoritism within clicks rather than knowledge & experience
Personally was stuck working for an "A" personality remote manager who was unable to enunciate priorities but was able to find fault with pretty much everything people did.
VP in Seattle was weak and out of his depth as he had grown to his level of incompetence.
A company on the forefront of ag tech, Climate was always making big moves. Always. Meaning that projects, team direction, and focus of daily jobs duties change at the drop of a hat, leaving employees to work tirelessly on initiatives that will be forgotten or altered drastically in very short time. Poor communication of product priorities from front end to back end made for a number of "missed marks" and frustrated, confused customers.
As a contract employee you will have all of the same responsibilities as FTEs, but with none of the same benefits. You will not be included in various company events or allowed to participate in any activities that promote professional development. All benefits depend on the staffing agency that hires you, so do your research before submitting an application. Conversion to a direct-hire role will likely not be possible without moving laterally to fill a vacancy on another team. Management is hit or miss. Many management positions are filled by previous Monsanto employees with a narrow vision instead of hiring individuals with tech-industry experience.
Free lunch three times weekly
No opportunity for advancement, management quality is hit or miss
If you make it as a FTE, then you're good to go. If you're a contractor, make sure to always fix problems before they happen or you can find yourself out of a job in no time flat. The CEO is as real as they get, very down to Earth and extremely friendly.
Well, this is true ONLY if you are actually employed by Climate. If you are a contractor, all is null and void. Also, it is fairly impossible for contractors to get hired on, so if you are going in as one, go in for the experience and be prepared to move on to another company.
The latest incarnation of management brought over cares only about themselves. Everything is rainbows and unicorns, even if there is a massive problem. The team that came over only is looking out for themselves and do not care about those that were already in positions at the company.
The Climate Corporation was a great place to work for people who love to be on the forefront. All of my co-workers in the field were wonderful to work with and get along with. It was exciting to work for a company that was innovative and changing the way modern agriculture is interpreted by the farmer.
Good benefits and compensation
worklife balance in busy season, working for startup with lack of organization
