There Are Other Jobs Out There
As other reviewers have noted, the CFO and President lack any positive bedside manners. My experiences dealing with them (especially the CFO) were almost always negative and ultimately led me to accept the first job that got me out of Deveney. The CFO also happens to be the director of human resources so you can imagine the difficulty negotiating a raise with the man who also controls the company's bank accounts. My bonuses were always insignificant by any measure (usually less than a normal paycheck), and to make my moral seep even lower, I was told to remain 80% billable even though my plate was overwhelmed with non-billable company promotional work. There's also the company retreat. It's a four day excursion into the boondocks where employees are required to share a bedroom with a coworker (you don't get to choose that coworker), and attend seminars that last hours upon hours. The outcome of the seminars is supposed to be an action plan for the company, but few things beyond material additions to the office itself were ever implemented as a result of any of the findings. One of the seminars is a SWOT analysis where participants shout out the shortcomings of their coworkers in front of the entire company. People cried, people got angry and stormed out, and others refused to speak to their perceived offenders for weeks, months or longer. To sum up, the contradictions, broken promises, lack of decent benefits, forced attendance at a company retreat that accomplished (in my opinion) little other than bitterness among coworkers all add up to a company that was dangerous to my overall mental health.
