Does Bedrock offer unlimited holiday?

Pros

Great parking that was accessible 24/7. Discounts to downtown stores and restaurants. Good benefits and vacation time (when you can take it).

Cons

Pay is below industry standards. Management, particularly the Leadership Team, doesn't listen to employees or problems. If you speak up, you get labeled as someone difficult to work with. Be careful, they may even try to put you on a performance improvement plan if they don't like the facial expressions or tone that women use in a meeting. Men are never criticized or punished for making arguable points, cutting people off or just being rude and condescending. Departments are being led by people that have NO experience or educational background in those areas. There were three CEO changes in my time there. Hundreds more postcards about what the company was or its values. No one really cares. No inter-team collaboration happens because people are constantly handed "grenades" too handle. People are tired from working late and constantly being available to team members, leadership and tenants. Tons of rich white people at the top of this organization trying to decide the best for Detroit and they wonder why they make so many missteps. If you are not what leadership envisions as a leader, you will not become one.

Advice to Management

Stop telling Detroit what they need and actually listen to Detroiters about what they want. Act on those outlet surveys. Bad managers have been mentioned for years and yet they stay.

Good benefits and vacation time (when you can take it).

How are senior leaders perceived at Bedrock?

Pros

Decent benefits, good perks, nice office building.

Cons

In the four years I worked at Bedrock, the CEO position (and most others in the C suite) turned over THREE times. The most recent leadership team forces each business area to operate in a silo, and does not communicate high-level goals and objectives to the entire organization. Middle management is similarly opaque, and is not open to data-driven suggestions to improve the business. The org chart is not designed to support career advancement and upward mobility for individual contributors. Approximately 15% of the workforce was laid off via a pre-recorded Zoom call in March of 2021.

Advice to Management

Trust your team members to be subject matter experts, and consider their suggestions. Clearly communicate goals so team members know what they're working toward. Treat your team members like human beings.
