Company Culture

Terrible HR Manager named Joy.
She needs fired.

Support from management

President does not force managers to do their jobs correctly. C.O.O. is too busy worring about other international locations to care about what happens in Winter Haven.

Teamwork

Lack of management participation for key projects.

Freedom to work independently

Some micro-managing.

Internal Communication

No training then they complain when you don't know something.

Office / Work Environment

Not team players.

Work-Life Balance

Only require 40 hours.

Job Security

They fire people telling them they just dont fit in.

Workplace Safety

No safety training and no one worries about OSHA compliance.

What I like about the company

Nothing

What I dislike about the company

Everything.

Company Culture

Diverse company if you are white you are a minority.

Support from management

If you are an employee and you have a problem there is no one you can go to for help, HR is there for the company only and your manager goes to HR if you complain about anything.

Teamwork

Everyone needs to be involved to make a team, it was always lop sided.

Freedom to work independently

If this is what you enjoy, you will fit right in. There is mainly groups of 3-4 per team and most departments have persons that play on their phones texting and playing games. As someone once said 20% of the employees doing 80% of the work.

Internal Communication

Communication within departments horrible.

Gender Equality

There are no females here in management.

Attitude towards older colleagues

If you make a decent wage, you will be terminated and replaced by a lower wage employee if they think they can find a replacement.

Overall compensation for your work

Until new management came in, there was annual raises. Even if you are promised more income if you take on more work loads they decline to stand up to promises, even when it is in writing.

Office / Work Environment

All offices are open with multiple work spaces, very noisy and hard to concentrate.

Environmental Friendliness

Green friendly company

Work-Life Balance

They provide plenty of earned personal time off.

Company Image

Some of the things I have learned about this company since my dismissal I am ashamed to say I was associated with it.

Job Security

there is none. Florida right to hire right to fire. HR finds employees, managers finds reasons to fire you.

Handicapped Accessibility

Most offices are on the 2nd floor and there are only stair access. Restrooms are all on lower level.

Workplace Safety

Safety shoes and glasses required in plant.

Challenging Work

Everyday my work was a challenge,

Inclusive / Diverse

They have a box for continuous improvement, put your name on your suggestions so managers do not take credit. If your idea is used, you get a bonus.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Put Management in place that cares about employees succeeding instead of failing.

What I like about the company

Hours and benefits.

Company Culture

very diverse company.

Support from management

There are a few manager there that are willing to help if you ask, others spend their time planning the demise of other employees. As fast as HR finds employees, managers find way to fire them.

Teamwork

Although you work with others and share as much information as possible it is somehow not enough.

Freedom to work independently

Get ready to do exactly this!

Internal Communication

communication between departments is almost non existent.

Gender Equality

Females always gets passed up when it comes to advancement.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Depends on the department. There are some employees that have been there 25+ years. However to save a dime in a department, they will ditch you and get someone new at a lower wage and less experience.

Office / Work Environment

Open air offices, very noisy and at times hard to concentrate. There is no privacy.

Environmental Friendliness

Green friendly

Work-Life Balance

If you have PTO accumulated you can pretty much take off when necessary.

Job Security

Only ones with secure jobs are managers.

Handicapped Accessibility

all restrooms are on lower levels and there are no elevators.

What I like about the company

It is possible to make friends here. The hours are great.

What I dislike about the company

Backstabbing and gossip there is incredible, and there is no investigation to see if the stories are true before they decide to get rid of you.
