Support from management

Employees were never involved in their decision making process. Leadership was not supportive.

Teamwork

Colleagues where great at working together but Leadership did not work great with their employees.

Freedom to work independently

Sometimes you were trusted to work independently and sometimes you were micromanaged.

Internal Communication

Communication was at 50% although employees were told that would improve.

Overall compensation for your work

The pay actually decreased in that they reduced pay to some staff and capped others out at a lower amount that didn't match the work responsibilities.

Environmental Friendliness

There is no recycling program but the company demonstrated concern.

Work-Life Balance

There was a high turn over rate so often employee were asked to work extra hours.

Company Image

I started out proud when there was different leadership. When the leadership changed the atmosphere changed for the worse and ai no longer was proud.

Job Security

Positions were eliminated in a mass amount a few times. Everyone felt their jobs were at risk and began to look for other jobs.

Handicapped Accessibility

There are no elevators and only 2 ramps.

Challenging Work

The work was challenging at times. I was very proud of my work ethic.

Inclusive / Diverse

The company values diversity.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better support to employees and competitive pay.

What I like about the company

Variety of positions to choose from.

What I dislike about the company

Leadership over the last 5 years
