Toxic environment

Systems Engineer (Former Employee) Colorado Springs, CO (US)

ProsCompany got me up and running with all the supplies, software, computer and permissions I needed within a week of starting, nice break room, could make your own hours as long as you completed your work & did the minimum 40 hrs per week

ConsVery poor communication, if you weren't in management you knew there were secret meetings going on that you were not invited to, unrealistic deadlines, management turned a blind eye to any process improvements, lots of layoffs and not many potential contracts in the pipeline, good employees left, bad managers stayed on? No training or opportunity to change positions

Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest with employees, communicate, say No to unrealistic deadlines - giving a crappy product on-schedule means nothing, improve image to win new contracts

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
