Company Culture

Everyone was professional, but could be very catty. I was not a fan of the gossip

Support from management

Management is warm and open to help (when they are available. They are gone a lot)

Teamwork

We help each other out a lot and it is encouraged in order to meet quotas

Freedom to work independently

No micromanaging

Internal Communication

Lots of emails from executives and managers had lots of meeting with updates

Gender Equality

Most management is women and very diverse ethnic backgrounds

Attitude towards older colleagues

Everyone is treated the same

Career Development

Lots of promotions and positions in other departments available.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay is higher than similar nearby companies

Office / Work Environment

Normal office environment

Environmental Friendliness

Encourages recycling and minimizing waste

Work-Life Balance

Don't have to bring work home with you

Company Image

We are helping a lot of sick people live functional lives

Handicapped Accessibility

Elevators, large bathrooms

Workplace Safety

Everyone must be up to date on safety trainings and they are regularly updated

Challenging Work

It was a lot of work, but it wasn't hard. Very easy to do once trained

Inclusive / Diverse

Sharing ideas is appreciated and open discussion happens a lot

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would allow remote work for part-time and full-time options. I would bring food back to the cafeteria and I would allow the option to take a 30-minute break as an hour is too long for me. I would allocate the work out more evenly and hold people accountable when they don't do their work and pawn it off to someone else. The job isn't hard and there's no reason people can't get their work done.

What I like about the company

I made a handful of really good friends at this company. The people try to do their best despite the stressful environment and there is always someone to laugh with and someone that will help you out. I was able to get promoted quickly, and management is very supportive and answers all questions without making you feel like you are bothering them. I liked that overtime was sometimes offered nd I like that I was able to do special project outside of my regular job to expand my skills. I got to help develop the training material for new staff and that looked good on my resume. The connections I made while employed there helped me get a new job at another company and because I did so many special projects I was able to get a higher position than normal.

What I dislike about the company

I do not like how very little notice is given when jobs are shifting. We were told we were downsizing but that we'd be able to keep our jobs with a pay cut. A few months later, we were told we were going to be unemployed in two weeks. That was not enough notice and I thought it was very rude for the people who have been there for so long and put so much work in. Also, I didn't like the catty gossip and there was no one to stop it because management was just as guilty. A major issue is not being able to work remotely. The job doesn't need us there every day. the work could easily be done at home. Other companies in the industry are doing remote work and they are behind the times.

Company Culture

constant changes in leadership leads to a lot of changes downstream

Support from management

a change in management caused me to lose my job - my. new manager was not interested in developing me as that position was supposed to

Teamwork

example comes from above on how to get ahead

Freedom to work independently

a lot of micro management and nit picking without clear direction

Career Development

lots of playing favorites and employees hang in the balance

Challenging Work

work was more challenging than it should have been because management was not willing to give the time to train me in my new role

Suggestions for improvement

  • Help leadership set a better example by not making "favorites" known and improve the culture within the teams.

What I like about the company

I had a lot of development opportunities that shaped my career. My first 6 years at the company allowed me different insights into the industry and to learn how different aspects of the company worked. I was able to apply things that I had learned in previous positions to my subsequent positions.

What I dislike about the company

Lots of churn at high levels caused a lot of redundancy and issues downstream which also hindered progress. There was a lot of favoritism from leadership that caused issues within the teams.
