Support from management
Depending on who your direct superior is/was, don't expect support. Instead, expect to be thrown under the bus for management blunders and potentially be fired for something you didn't do. The higher ups also thrive on favoritism and openly showing it with perks.
There's a lot of miscommunication daily with egos to add to the frustration. The best practice is have everything in writing via email.
Again this depends on who's willing to fight for you and who you're "rubbing elbows" with. Management hires friends and family and also promotes them. If there's an open position a current employee is suitable for - management will hire from outside instead. I believe they want the lower level employees to continue doing the grunt work rather than excelling.
Promotions are possible if schmooze with the right people and always watch your back. It's cut throat and you'll always need to cover your bases. There was no formal training during my experience, you learn as you go.
Overall compensation for your work
Compensation was on average with the industry standards
Office / Work Environment
Computers could use an update, especially the low resolution screens. The general office space is cramped.
Samples are donated to charities on a quarterly basis. This is done directly by employees who take their time to choose the charity, package the samples and then ship them. Management barely ever plays a part.
Early dismissal summer Fridays. Great holiday vacation time. On average you will have to work overtime (without additional pay) during certain times of the year.
The building has several evelators.
Don't expect workers comp.
