PLenty of work, small company, great teams to work with.Cons
Management is creating a gap between them and employees. Hostile work environment. Unwilling to listen or change. Only thing that matters is looking like they are making progress. All the decissions are being made by contractors.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Change. Keep your promise of bringing work inhouse. Pick a strategy and direction and stick to the plan. See it through.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at First Niagara Financial in February 2014.Interview Details
I received an email from a person who wanted to do a phone interview. We agreed on a time and had the interview. The HR person did change the interview time the Friday before the interview. Then when the HR person called me, she asked if it was still a good time for the interview.
Some of the interview parts was ask about resume, what I have been doing? Where do I see myself down the road, past salary history). Shockley didn't ask me about what I did know about the FNG which I had my information all ready for that.
At the end HR person said I would hear back from them within the next week. I received an email saying I did not get an in person interview.Interview Questions
