It's not that I simply dislike working at USAA or that I'm burned out, I'm actively hating it. I'm sick and tired of the stress that comes with working here. I'm sick of the politics and sick of having to clean up messes made by my manager who got promoted through nepotism. They say the grass is not always greener, but I can't see how that could possibly be true at this point.

USAA is done. It’s reputation as a good place to work ended several years ago. It started with Stuart who was a horrible CEO and continues with Wayne (who is an absolute mo--n in business).
Some USAA departments are better than others but no department is not dysfunctional. Unfortunately the company is run by very obsolete leaders who have been at the same company for 20-40 years.
I switched departments and that was a mistake. I’ve hated my job now for at least a year. I take it back. I love my job. I hate my leadership
So done, my EMG manager is an id--t. People don’t leave companies the leave managers. I’ve escalated so many times that he has become hostile. Keeps piling on work with unreasonable deadlines that aren’t even relevant to deliverables. All about proving he’s doing something. Doing nothing but spinning meetings, , e-mails and creating chaos.
It’s really sad how dysfunctional things are. Many that have been in my area 4 years or more are not willing to listen to ideas or do anything differently. Is not willing to change, why were we hired?
I'm in the same boat. Not even 6 months and I'm looking for the door...
