  • New CEO to start. The previous one was great.

What I like about the company

The retired management

What I dislike about the company

New management. Say there's an open door policy. When you trust that and use it, they terminate.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Company wide communication about events and interdeparmental communication regarding certain issues could be improved upon.

What I like about the company

I like how the atmosphere is friendly from top to bottom. The senior executives of the company walk around the same halls as everyone else, and they all remember everyone's name and acknowledge you as they pass you. The executive team also personally makes you feel appreciated if you've done something well.

Company Culture

They do care a lot for their customers, but that's about it.

Support from management

I felt like they just stuck me at a desk and had me do the work they didn't want to do or had time to do.

Freedom to work independently

yeah...a little too often for someone who only worked there for 2 days..

Career Development

all of the equipment was outdated and obsolete. Literally felt like I was working in the 1980's...what a nightmare...

Overall compensation for your work

The company benefits are garbage, they dont offer over time, and no bonuses either. Not good for someone who wants this to be a career for them.
Oh and they only give new employees ONE WEEK for the whole year for sick time or vacation days. So if you have any desire to live your life with PTO, forget it.

Work-Life Balance

They take work/life balance alright...for someone who doesn't need the extra money...NO OVER TIME AT ALL!!!! No bonuses either!!!!

Suggestions for improvement

  • GIVE THE EMPLOYEES OVER TIME. UPGRADE YOUR COMPUTER PROGRAMS/PHONES/EQUIPMENT. GIVE THE HARD WORKING EMPLOYEES BONUSES!!! They work hard enough to deserve these things!! Now treat them like it!

What I like about the company

I mean everyone seemed friendly enough. And it was nice to have a whole hour for lunch.

What I dislike about the company

Absolute nightmare. As someone who needs extra income and doesn't have the time or energy to put into a second job, every job I work at, I really try my best to work as much as possible. OT is a no brainer for someone like me who RELIES on the extra income. But nope! This company does NOT offer OT, bonuses, a decent amount of PTO, a working space that doesn't give you claustrophobia, or a working environment that keeps your mind occupied. If you're fresh out of high school, a busy mom/dad who can't work OT or doesn't want it, or even if you are older and need someone that will provide an OK-ish income with a relaxed work environment, i'd say work here if you want i guess. but other than that, if you're a hard worker like me and you need a job that will give you what you deserve with the extra hours and incentives, SEEK ELSEWHERE.
