"You'd imagine that a multi billion dollar global company would have some of the basics figured out. Things like; Access to systems, onboarding, training, promotion requirements, project management. You would however be wrong. In a 6 month span of time I will lose access to necessary systems without warning, internal teams do not have any checks and balances on granting access or removing access. Internal oversight teams and HR/WFM teams can take months to respond to basic day to day work requests. Getting access during onboarding has taken months to years for multiple systems. In review for promotion they will advise you are exemplary and setting the bar for your peers but deny you promotion, in waiting for a discussion on next steps meetings will be pushed out indefinitely leaving tenured employees in the dark on what to do to meet requirements they have already been advised they meet. Compensation has no concern with getting tenured people the money they deserve, resulting in those tenured employees receiving 20% - 50% less than new hires who are lower title. They do the standard run around of "you shouldn't be discussing compensation" as the response when these concerns are escalated. The buildings are these empty desolate offices that instill a sense of deep depression and hollowness and they are desperately struggling to force everyone into these cages to work in misery surrounded by distraction and full of hollow pointless meetings. The internal organization is designed entirely around giving 1 or 2 people dozens of responsibilities that create roadblocks for thousands of employees and does nothing to hold those select individual responsible for actually doing their job. As an example of a "good business model" its no wonder the economy constantly on the verge of a recession. Terrifying to see this rated as world class frontrunner."
