Company culture

They will preach to you about their culture. That they are a family oriented, celebration culture. But they expect to be your family and the celebrations don't amount to much.

Support from Management

In my experience, their expectations are not realistic. No matter what you do, it's never enough. And at least in the areas I worked, don't expect any thank you's or pats on the back. Goals are clear, just not how to achieve them. You may be included as long as you say, yes sir.

Company culture

Varies

Support from Management

Poor management and misplaced resources

Teamwork

Some employees are a pleasure to work with. Others are munipulative and only look out for themselves.

Level of Autonomy

Not at all.

Communication

Poor communication

Career Development

Used to offer training. Stopped about 3 years ago. Now it's more of a sink or swim atmosphere

Overall Compensation for your work

Decent benifits. Slowly getting worse though. Lowest paying shop in this area in this field.
