Company Culture

A lot of bad talk behind people's backs. Propaganda and misinformation run rife. A depressing environment. No support from middle management.

Support from management

Management sets employees against each other. Takes sides based on personal interest. Plays a close "poker hand" during communications.

Teamwork

Once again, employees are pitted against each other to compete for favors with management. Behind the back insults aplenty.

Freedom to work independently

The best jobs are handed to personal favorites, but with good skills one could often overcome difficult tasks.

Internal Communication

Upper and middle management very secretive. Lies and manipulation very common.

Gender Equality

An equal opportunity employer.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Anybody over 50 was marginalized, made fun of and eventually pushed out at first opportunity.

Career Development

A dead end.

Overall compensation for your work

Starting salaries not bad, but raises come slowly and are small, especially after "topping out". Health insurance is partially covered, and not a particularly good plan. It is only offered after one becomes "full time", which, depending on the individual could take months. A full year in one case I witnessed. A few times we were asked to wait a few days before cashing our paychecks. Christmas bonuses are generally small and sometimes non-existent without explanation.

Office / Work Environment

Office and warehouse very messy. Lights/electric and plumbing/facilities in constant disrepair.

Environmental Friendliness

Some care and concern toward local art community.

Work-Life Balance

Difficult to maintain more than 30-32 hours in 5 day work week. Several furlough days given throughout year. Pressure to drive long hours and overnight on out of state trips. Expected to stay in "cheap" motels to save money. On a positive note, it is usually easy to get unpaid time off.

Company Image

Many employees are afraid to speak up while still employed. Ex-employees, without fail, have little good to say.

Job Security

Even though I worked there for years there was often an atmosphere among the general labor of being let go, laid off or the business going under at any time.

Handicapped Accessibility

The business is located on ground level, so I guess that applies. No particular features.

Workplace Safety

Employees in general tended to be very careful individually, but the atmosphere was often chaotic, messy and, at times, dangerous. OSHA would have a field day.

Challenging Work

Art handling is a somewhat challenging and interesting industry. AWFAS doesn't take on as much challenging work as other companies. Most exciting jobs are given to manager's favorite person.

Inclusive / Diverse

Hard to say. Personal preferences of upper management unknown. Middle management makes judgments based on personal favoritism.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Managerial restructuring. Learn basic communication skills.

What I like about the company

The type of work. Some of my coworkers. Occasional flexibility with hours.

What I dislike about the company

Unsafe working conditions. Feeling of insecurity almost daily. Lack of any kind of reasonable communication and respect from management.
