The company culture is extremely hostile to women. It feels like you're working in a frat house, but without any of the fun.
i was pretty much on my own for everything that was assigned to me
Freedom to work independently
management has an extreme problem with micro managing, but at the same time they somehow don't even know what their employees work on. in a way it makes you feel more independent, but it's really just a lack of knowing how to manage employees at all
I was the only woman in my entire department of like 15-20 people and the way men treated me was so demoralizing. I have never been talked down to so much by a boss who didn't have any of the skills or experience that i have. men can get away with just about anything, including acting extremely inappropriate towards women, but if a woman does the smallest thing she will be pulled aside and formally disciplined.
Attitude towards older colleagues
I didn't notice people discriminate on the basis of age but given how bad the culture is it wouldn't surprise me
Overall compensation for your work
i was paid 15k less than the average person with my experience and position, and the benefits are basically non existence other than insurance. The amount of PTO employees get is an insult and employees get no sick time
Office / Work Environment
nasty, dirty office. They don't even hire a cleaning staff or anything, they just have someone who works in the office clean it after work
they once repainted the entire warehouse with toxic fumes and didn't let people go home. they turned away pregnant women at the door because of the fumes but made people continue to work. everyone had headaches and felt dizzy and confused but they had to keep working.
It's challenging only because it's so completely disorganized and dysfunctional. i would say it's challenging but in a bad way. on the bright side i learned how not to run a company
Inclusive / Diverse
It's a boy's club
Suggestions for improvement
- improve company culture, make it less hostile to women, improve the benefits and PTO, give employees sick time, compensate employees fairly
What I like about the company
What I dislike about the company
