Unreasonable goals set for the working day, which always overruns.

The people working here are amazing, but are being overworked and are underappreciated and so are disheartened.


It feels like a constant battle with planning to try get a reasonable work load for the day.

Management communication is sporadic and received potluck. They are not receptive to constructive feedback and do not have a growth mindset approach to improving ways of working.
Pros
Free budget snacks
Cons
Very long hours
