Company Culture

No real culture. People work hard and go home.

Support from management

Some support but not always approachable.

Freedom to work independently

Some autonomy but also micro managing

Internal Communication

No transparency. Have no idea if company is financially viable or heading into dangerous waters.

Gender Equality

Only 1 woman in senior management. No women managers except in accounting/HR.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Some respect but also seems to be a lot of focus on retirement.

Overall compensation for your work

Undefined bonus plan. Seems to be based on favoritism. When people complain, they can get a raise.

Office / Work Environment

Open concept is good except when tempers flare.

Work-Life Balance

Family is considered important.

Inclusive / Diverse

Diverse population but can be cliquish.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Share mission or budget or something. Create a defined bonus plan so we know what to expect and how to achieve it. Develop a compensation plan. Seems the only time someone gets a raise is if they threaten to leave.

What I like about the company

Supportive team. Willing to help each other when needed. High end clients.

What I dislike about the company

Not transparent at all. No idea about company values or mission or anything. No budget that I have seen. No defined compensation plan. During performance evaluation, told not to discuss compensation.

Company Culture

Seems people work really hard and just go home. Not really a culture.

Support from management

Some support but also some difficult expectations not well communicated.

Teamwork

Excellent team work

Freedom to work independently

Some autonomy and some micro managing.

Internal Communication

Not a lot of senior level communication. No idea how well the company is doing. Vague statements about company performance but nothing specific.

Gender Equality

Only 1 woman in senior management and all the rest are men.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Seems like they want some of the senior people to retire.

Overall compensation for your work

On the very low end. No annual raises - just to those who complain. Benefits just acceptable. Finally bumped 401K match to $2k from $1K for as long as I was with company.

Inclusive / Diverse

Lots of cliques. Not a lot of women.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Be transparent. Let people know how the company is doing. Create a more defined compensation plan to help eliminate frustrations.

What I like about the company

Good team work. Team members are supportive of one another.

What I dislike about the company

Not transparent. Lack of defined bonus plan which makes bonuses seem arbitrary or based on favoritism. No annual increases. Increases seem to occur when someone threatens to quit.

Overall compensation for your work

Average for market but very, very slow to give increases. Only squeaky wheels seem to get the grease for raises. Threaten to quit and magically you get an increase.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire staff. Review benefits to be more competitive to help attract people. Come up with a compensation plan employees can work towards.

What I like about the company

Generally, people are very nice and friendly. Projects are unique. Great clients. Company is making progress with low employee morale.

What I dislike about the company

Lack of staffing and some of management can become stressed and unapproachable. Very few incentives to go over and above. No compensation plan in place. Seems salary increases happen on a random basis. Some people in the company have not had an increase in over 7 years.
