Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop hiring young stupid people.

What I like about the company

Flexible when needed due to family issues.

What I dislike about the company

Constant state of change. Revolving door of employees the last 2 years. Lost touch with people in the trenches performing the actual work with customers.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make it easier to see career progression pathways.

What I like about the company

The company is extremely supportive of me on a daily basis. I am trusted to get done what I need to do; they're not at all anal about where I do it (whether in the office or working from home).

What I dislike about the company

I wish there were more opportunities for growth that were clear, as well as career progression pathways. Also, I especially wish such opportunities existed abroad.

Company Culture

Good people out in the local shops but the culture eroded with 100% turnover of the corporate leadership a few years ago.

Support from management

Poor management at the senior level with no vision.

Freedom to work independently

Extremely top heavy and poor retention at the service level of the organization such as experienced field technicians.

Overall compensation for your work

Average

Office / Work Environment

Little regard for safety. Expect to work 50-60 hrs a week with no notice.

Work-Life Balance

No balance. Work when duty calls.

Job Security

Expect restructuring every 5 years

Inclusive / Diverse

No diversity.

Workplace Safety

Management was more concerned with fun and play time and not work. Doesn't know the job but dictates how to do the job. Understandable why office is shutting down.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Focus on work and not play. Hold people accountable for not doing their job, and treat the people who bend over backwards for the company with a shred of respect.

What I like about the company

Work/life balance, pay rate (if you fought for it), vacation time

What I dislike about the company

New CEO came in and decided to lay off 600 employees.
