This company is ran by poor management, and there has been a considerably high turnover rate due to their lack of team development initiatives and inconsistent policies. Management will change a policy, like the schedules for the employees, and not really give a true reason why. It is as if management doesn't tell the truth to the employees, and keeps things to themselves just to fit their own agendas/agendas of others. Management will target certain employees in the Ops team for mistakes and bad practices, while not addressing the inadequacies seen in the team as a whole. One member could be a senior, who has been working for so long with bad habits/negligent practices and not get any scolding/reprimand, while a junior analyst would get scolded/ridiculed even when they learned everything from the senior analyst. Some senior analysts are not true leaders, as they would cover themselves while letting the juniors get fried by their direct managers. There are even managers that know this, as they have favorites in the team and allow exceptions for them, like wearing gym clothes to work, but expect you to wear the proper attire MANDATED by HR Dress Code Policy. Management has pure favoritism, and does not put the needs of other people on the table over a senior that has been there for them for many years. Management also is not interested in any of your endeavors, as they expect you to stay and deal with their bad practices for years just by giving you more money. If you desire to have a resource, such as a work-from-home laptop, they will lie and say it isn't in the budget, even though the company makes millions of dollars per year. The work-from-home policy is a joke, and they didn't take it seriously and in due time removed the program due to poor direction.
