Reviews - What employees say

Company Culture

Very different from what I grew up with and I disagree with a lot of it

Support from management

Baseline is okay, but not at all open to suggestions or requests

Teamwork

Depends on the location. Current location discourages talking to others and administration has made statements encouraging going behind others backs

Freedom to work independently

Actively discourages

Overall compensation for your work

For what it is, it's fine, and the benefits are amazing

Office / Work Environment

I have sensory issues, and it's a struggle for me. The temperature is also ridiculous. Otherwise, it's fine.

Environmental Friendliness

Could be improved, but they try

Work-Life Balance

Depends on the supervisor

Job Security

I want to say yes, but people have been fired for ridiculous reasons, so I never feel fully safe

Challenging Work

Depends on the location, but it's simple work and encouraged to stay that way

Inclusive / Diverse

Could be better--for example, many accommodations for disabilities could be improved.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Besides what's already been stated, create a private space for employees feeling ill. Switch to LED lighting. Regulate temperature better. LISTEN TO EMPLOYEES.

What I like about the company

Have been great working with me when I had a family issue. Great diversity. Excellent benefits.

What I dislike about the company

Need to actually listen to their employees and patrons and get off their high horse, and stop just saying they are listening when they clearly aren't. A more flexible work schedule would be great. Go back to solid home locations--patrons, employees, and supervisors all prefer this and it makes for more efficient work. Allow talking amongst co-workers as long as the work gets done. Allow independent thinking--for example, make time for projects and trust employees to make decisions on their own.
