VP for Strategic Marketing at CIM Group: “I don’t believe we can survive”
VP for strategic marketing for CIMGroup, Andrew Janko, said that he’s not convinced that the firm can survive and that “our culture is so toxic” that it will never be able to attract top talent.
“We have been in this for 20 years, we’re the fastest-growing company in the world,” Jankos said at a panel discussion at the McKinsey Global Institute.
“If we don’t start taking our culture seriously, it’s just going to keep going the way it is.”
While he said CIM is hiring more talent than ever, he’s also saying that the company’s core competencies, such as product management and sales, are being lost to new companies.
CIM was founded by former Microsoft VP Mike Marini, who also founded CIM, Inc. in 2012.
Cim has about 15,000 employees.
Jankoa, who worked in the corporate world before becoming VP, said he was not surprised by the company and that he thinks its growth is being driven by the people at the top.
He said that “people are not coming into this company because they want to get rich, they’re coming into it because they think it’s a great place to do business.”
There’s a lot of very strong, high-paying positions out there, and we don, as a company, can’t sustain it,” Janksos said.
He added that he feels CIM’s culture has “never really been good.”
The company also recently cut its compensation for top talent, but Jankosi said that is a problem not because CIM needs to cut people, but because Cim is doing a poor job of providing them.
He pointed to how the company is “pushing people down to the lowest level” and that this is hurting the company.
Cima, which he said “has been doing well” in recent years, is a company that is trying to build a culture of “careers in the middle,” and is not offering them opportunities that are going to lead to success, he said.
CIM has said that its focus on talent and customer service has resulted in a positive reputation and that it has been a source of pride to the company in terms of hiring and retention.
It’s a toxic environment, and I don’t think we can ever survive in that environment,” he added. “
We’re not hiring people for the right reasons,” he said, “we’re hiring people because they have the right qualities and the right skills, and that’s why the company isn’t working.”
It’s a toxic environment, and I don’t think we can ever survive in that environment,” he added.
At the same time, Jankoos said that CIM has the resources to hire top talent if it wants to.
He also said that if CIM were to lose its ability to attract high-quality talent, it would be a loss for the company that would have a negative impact on the future of the company as a whole.
Jankso also said the company has made a lot in recent times, but it is “a slow-growth company” and the company should “stop being slow-growing and start being fast-growing.””
Our culture is just toxic, and it’s been there for a long time,” Jankaos said, adding that “this is not something new, we’ve been doing this for a very long time.
