Teamwork

Has some very helpful temporary employees and not so helpful full time employees

Very Diversified, and respectful.

Support from management

Supportive.

Teamwork

Team Oriented.

Freedom to work independently

Openness to new ideas and concepts, to working independently or as part of a team, and to carrying out multiple tasks.

Internal Communication

Needs improvement.

Gender Equality

They promote equal pay for equal work, but it’s more about equal opportunity for equal work.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Managers, older or otherwise, takes the lead and create the climate in which older workers will remain engaged and productive.

Career Development

Shared Learning.

Overall compensation for your work

Competitive.

Office / Work Environment

Transparent and open form of communication addresses the employee’s need to feel that what they have to say has value. It is what makes employees feel that they belong in the organization. Work then becomes meaningful because the employees know that what they contribute affects the organization that they are affiliated with.

The image that stakeholders have of the company will influence their willingness to either provide or withhold support.

Company Culture

Teaches a very good envirement but practices a system quite opisite.

Support from management

Not usually. Common to assign the hardest and most visual tasks to one person and document compleation of task to someone else. Very common but wasn't always like this,

Teamwork

Within groups very good. Teams work very well together on projects until certain managers start to manage things so credit is directed to there favered few and away from the team members doing the tasks.

Freedom to work independently

All documentation requires the names at the start. Nothing is anonymous or treated as confidential.

Internal Communication

Communication is valued here.

Gender Equality

Not at any level I saw.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Used to be considered by skills and drive. Seems to now be driven by short term thinking and experienced workers are not helpful.
Long term employees are not what the current plan embraces.

Career Development

As long as a high level manager chooses you soon after hire. Most are driven into looking outside.

Overall compensation for your work

For the area yes. Travel a few miles closer to the Metropolitan area and this changes fast.

Office / Work Environment

The building working environment is usually up to or better than other businesses in the area. You

Environmental Friendliness

This has been driven mainly by the hourly workers and I believe is among the best for a manufacturing plant.

Work-Life Balance

Non existent. If the schedule shows a need for people they are forced to be present or very quickly terminated, usually using management personal from a different location to terminate people they have never before had any contact with.

Company Image

I sincerely regret rating it so low. Makes me sad.

Job Security

Until ~10-15 years ago very stable workplace. Nowadays I hear about people being terminated quickly with the employee in question knowing why.

Handicapped Accessibility

They follow all regulations to comply with legal requirements.

Workplace Safety

Systems are in place to help insure a safe workplace.
If a failure is experienced and someone is hurt or killed things happen to those involved resulting in management documenting all safety situations and violations at the injured /deceased employees fault and praising the people that didn't do the work needed during development to prevent the life changing event from happening.

Challenging Work

As I started out stating, there used to be great pride in working here. Learning new skills was common and appreciated by all team members.

Inclusive / Diverse

No!!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Start to value the individual again.

What I like about the company

Challenging work tasks. Learning every day.

What I dislike about the company

Don't support the hourly workers anymore.
