Strange experience

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsGreat people. Great benefits. Good family/work balance. One of my most favorite jobs.

ConsInexpicable behavior on part of upper management. After winning an award for the best performance of the year, increasing my business by 40%, more than double of the next highest performing employee, management decides to send people from the home office to monitor my work process. While there, these people spent all day making dates for drinks after work, etc.....I never did get why this was so. I found a higher paying job with their competitor.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone. Apparently this is a waste of time.
