    The single most abusive work environment I've ever experienced.

    I worked at Crystal and Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits (health, etc) are adequate.

    Cons

    This was the most hostile, disrespectful place I have ever worked. Everything revolves around the bottom line. If you're not bringing money in the door, you are treated like a second class citizen. Promotions, reviews and bonuses are entirely subjective and based entirely on who you know and who you suck up to. The executive management is like a 3 ring circus where each executive has an agenda, yet nothing ever gets decided. They fight among themselves and that hostility filters down to all employees.

    There is absolutely zero training available. You have to learn from your co-workers. Middle management is incredibly weak. They pile work on the lower level employees and expect them to "do more with less".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are one or two individuals in the most senior of positions in the company who are destined to drive every good and decent person out of the company. The owner needs to take a long, hard look at those individuals and realize what they are doing. The abusive behavior must stop.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Crystal and Company.

    Interview Details

    The manager will tell you anything to get you to take the job. Once hired you are the best thing to ever happen to the company. That is until the next person comes alone that the account executives like more then you.
