Company Culture

My division is good, the company as a whole has no clue on how to take care of their people

Support from management

My division is good, the company as a whole has no clue on how to take care of their people

Teamwork

They encourage it in words, but actions don't match

Freedom to work independently

Too many issues

Internal Communication

They send out contradictory statements

Gender Equality

1 thing they do a good job at

Attitude towards older colleagues

As long as they aren't making much more than younger ones, they aren't on the chopping block

Career Development

They have a horrible recruiting and retention dept, internal candidates barely ever get called or emailed to acknowledge receipt of a resume/application for any positions. Managers have to fight and push hard just to get someone to call an employee they refer for a position.

Overall compensation for your work

They are cheap, the industry is cheap, no raises or cost of living increases either

Office / Work Environment

Nice buildings and we ( many) can work from home

Environmental Friendliness

Yes

Work-Life Balance

No, they preach it, bit ask a lots

Company Image

They are a mess when it comes to keeping their word, because too many people are giving it in conflicting directions

Job Security

As long as I perform better than everybody it is, they have no clue

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes

Workplace Safety

Video training and we send out tips and tricks for safety, but many of our people go to other companies stores where you can try to be safe, but your environment migjt not be

Challenging Work

The company has a sales driven mentality, no Operations side to keep it in check, sales makes some impossible promises & never takes a reality check.

Inclusive / Diverse

Yes

Suggestions for improvement

  • Replace anybody who thinks just because you are sales, you can manage. The skills are not the same, you need to value and empower operations to be that reality check so they are not over promising and under delivering regularly

What I like about the company

My boss is supportive, although he has no resources to do anything other than say thank you

What I dislike about the company

Quit thinking everything except pay matters
