- Arrow Masonary & Building21.Nov 2015
There was no culture, everyone was miserable, from 2009 onward no one was happy. I spoke to the majority of the company over the years and no one was ever glad to work there after 2009.
Support from management
Leadership would get on a company call, say everything is great and lay off 50 people the following Friday. They would never admit a problem no matter how bad. Not connected with reality.
everyone was on their own. You had to make friends to have any type of teamwork. When someone had bad teamwork management didn't say anything.
Attitude towards older colleagues
its a dog eat dog world at Arrow S3.
The C levels don't have a clue how bad it is at the company. They lay people off left and right and think we are still happy while are colleages are removed without a reason. Then on the next company call they say everything is fine. Over 30 layoffs at this company since 2008.
There is no job security, after witnessing 30 layoffs, I went into work every day thinking it could be my last.
My particular management was great and made he best of the situations, they were very concerned about employee safety, whether in the building or elsewhere. My immediate managers were great in that respect, they cared for the individuals.
Suggestions for improvement
- Just listen to the employees and take action. Don't worry about how much you are making and how things appear to the investors because eventually they will see the true story. Tell the truth, make an entire re-org and save jobs and the company. 3o Layoff's in the last 8 years, come on!
What I like about the company
The immediate branch managers were excellent and knew the company was struggling but made the best out of it and fought for us. The problem is with the C level, they don't have a clue about their company or the industry. I can prove it, call an Arrow S3 location, and ask if they are happy and listen to the answer. You will not find one happy employee there if they are honest and are not being recorded. Also ask a sales rep what they sell and their goals and you will be surprised about the answer.
What I dislike about the company
C level is trying to hang on as much as they can before the company takes a nose dive to competitors. They will all lose their jobs unless they start listening to their employees and do something about it. They need clear goals and vision and need to specifically define what they sell and how they can support it.
