Integrated Marketing Systems / Poor employee treatment
IMS - Pacific Beach, CA - public project information for A/E/C: O.k., I am not exaggerating when I say this is the most backwards and negative environment I have EVER been in, and I've been in RETAIL! Let's paint a picture: No training, then you're written up for not getting training but they say something like 'You should know this' how?! Without training? But that doesn't matter. If you make your goals you are harassed to make higher numbers (then repeat this step), the CEO is so beyond himself he likes to remind everyone how replaceable everyone is, how they're are no jobs available...it's all about gimmie more and you're worthless...no respect, no encouragement, they make up (no validity) reviews to paint this other you you never met to give a poor review as a way to say you do not deserve a raise, so no one gets a raise, so basically: if you do what they want, they want more and you are trash. It's crazy how blatant they are about it too. It reminds me of movies I've seen of under paid slaves: They make Master what he is (successful) and slave is beaten. They try every 9 months to harass employees until they leave (avoid paying unemployment) to bring in lower paid employees and the cycle begins again. They absolutely see employees as trash. Crap bene's, very little time off and you are encouraged not to use them, no sick pay and they looooove to remind everyone of this at meetings too. There is no logic. There is no leadership. There is no consistency of how things should be done. They have stayed in business in spite of themselves. And all it is is a research job! Just research posted public sector projects looking for consultants! Wow, rocket science...everyone laughs at the CEO, President and VP behind the backs. On the same token though we are all upset to be treated so poorly 40 hrs a week. Bullies with a stick, that's all. Then they act like "What? Why would anyone be upset here...it's the employee, not the employer." Delusional. It's maddening to be there. I know there is no such thing as job security but to be an absolute nightmare to another human being is sickening. Oh, and that open door policy? Forget it, they own the company and are related. If you have a valid complaint it just makes your bullseye bigger. AND lastly, they make the worst business decisions...ugh. Runaway! They do not believe in employee benefits, care or health.
