IT Compliance Analyst
in Chicago, IL

"It is a pretty demanding environment. The department is overworked. The manager lacks basic leadership ability and is known for throwing his reports under the bus. He is also a known micromanager, creates unnecessary additional work, and is emotionally/verbally abusive.There is very little work-life balance, and low morale on my team. No one wants to go to HR because of retaliation."
