Company Culture

Not at all

Support from management

From upper management to floor supervisors, they love to recycle other companies and other Industries discarded practices and managers, there is a reason why they where available from the beginning.
No support whatsoever for the salespeople, office or production workers

Teamwork

Of upper management won't listen or even consider the people that make things happen and their feedback, then it's a company doomed to fail.

Freedom to work independently

Not such a thing, "Do as I say" period

Internal Communication

I've been working here for over three months now and I don't officially know who my immidate supervisor is

Gender Equality

No women work in production at this plant right now.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Experience is not at all appreciated yet it is exploited.

Career Development

There is not a chance to advance in this company, not based on qualifications or seniority or knowledge.

Office / Work Environment

We work in a "dump" "junk yard" our equipment is outdated and malfunctioning, maintenance is instructed ton"just put a band-aid on it"

Environmental Friendliness

Not at all and I won't go into details because I don't want my review to be thrown away.

Work-Life Balance

Mandatory overtime
Not enough workers on vacation per week which forces workers to take undesirable vacation times.

Job Security

They just closed the plant that I was working at for 18+ years just to move it outside to the neighbor state, to pay half the salary no benefits, no representation.

Handicapped Accessibility

By law

Workplace Safety

The company was fined because "knowingly exposing their employees to asbestos"

Challenging Work

That's everyday, based on the tools and training that we get its nothing less than a miracle that we can get good orders out and that's the operators work ethic.

Inclusive / Diverse

No

Suggestions for improvement

  • Just to start, start treating people with respect and dignity.

What I like about the company

This company was founded by good people and up until fifteen years ago it was a good place to work.

What I dislike about the company

New age management has turn it into a nightmare, the company cheats its employees of their negotiated rights due to loopholes and just disregard for their employees.
