Culture and Values
My Skanska IT job started off great, but the culture evolved into politics and game playing. After years of excellent performance reviews, the CIO changed. A consultant was brought in to assess how to streamline the application development work, but leadership wouldn’t share their recommendations. Suddenly everyone in my role was run off one by one via gas lighting. The assignments dried up and we were made to feel we were incompetent and had EQ problems. They wouldn’t admit that the role had been eliminated. They chose to destroy our confidence rather than lay us off with a severance package. Ethics and integrity are sorely lacking, and turnover has been high.

Pros and Cons
Pay and benefits were good, and the corporate values are great
IT leadership doesn’t model the corporate values and should not be trusted.
