An employee never knew from day to day what may happen. Fairness and trust were present some days and not others.
Support from management
Leadership was pretty much nonexistent.
I was the only employee in Admin. I worked alone.
Freedom to work independently
I had all the Admin and Accounting responsibilities and structured them as I saw fit.
I had most of the information I need to perform my job, because some of the information came to me. Men in the shop may receive only part of what was needed.
In the 13 years I was employed there only two women were ever hired. One women was there when I was hired. She did the purchasing. We were paid considerably less than the men. The two of us were never appreciated for the contributions we made to the company.
Attitude towards older colleagues
The attitude towards older workers is the three of us over 60 years old (including the 2 women) were laid off when the company's income dipped. Never to be hired back.
The company offered no career prospects, no advancement, no training and no personal development opportunities.
Overall compensation for your work
Managing partner's son was hired on at a larger salary than most of the employees and his responsibilities were practically none. Had health care, (eye & dental) 401K, paid vacation and life insurance. I made sure Payroll was always a top priority.
Office / Work Environment
Office personnel working conditions were reasonable. Out in the shop it was cold in the winter. Workers wore coats and gloves.
Yes, they are aware and do as much as possible to take them in to consideration.
Work-life balance was one of the factors that was great about this employers.
During my time of employment I lost my dad, my mother and my husband. They were wonderful with my scheduling meetings etc, that I need to attend.
The image of the company was poor. As the company began to lose money, employees began to talk bad about the company. By now the company may have turned around.
I was laid off on 3/31/2014 with no warning along with 2 other people. Managing partners wife was brought in to handle my job. No job is stable.
No one with a disability was employed there at that time.
Safety was a huge factor at ASF. Training was kept up to date and safety equipment was purchased.
I was proud of the production and work I did there. If unable to complete an assignment I would take it home to complete.
Inclusive / Diverse
A few opinions were suggested, almost none were ever considered.
Suggestions for improvement
- Managing Partner to be more hands on. Marketing the company and bringing in more customers. Curtail the spending of the engineers. Wait to bill customers until all costs are in or able to estimate the total cost of a job.
What I like about the company
They had good benefits. Hours were 7:00 am to 3:30 pm, Monday thru Friday. I did my job with minimum supervision. Had a private office.
What I dislike about the company
The three oldest employees that were laid off discussed changes that would benefit the company. None of which were taken seriously. I pointed out several ways to boost income that were never taken seriously. I tried to inform him of the financial condition of the company, only to be ignored. Finally I called in the CPA and the managing partner listened to him. Women were considered the lesser being.
The following benefits were offered to me
