Company Culture

The culture supported under a maintenance contract is - just do it the way new construction does. New build and maintenance are different. Company is imbred by nepotistic qualities.

Support from management

Direct management, great support - higher ups is lowsy. They are deaf to our concerns.

Freedom to work independently

I'm a self starter, so I get little to no guidance on a regular basis. Based on comms, I react and confirm that my efforts support current priorities. It's liberating to work in that environment, but it's often hampered by upper management desires.

Internal Communication

Comms are decent depending on where you are, but my site has limited comms.

Gender Equality

I'm treated as my boss' secretary by his boss. It's not the '60's.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I have not negative comments regarding apparent age issue. Despite my personal bias against individuals, the company appears to support employees it trusts regardless of age.

Career Development

Nepotism and good ol' boy's club all around.

Overall compensation for your work

I've assessed a 15% differential between the amount of hours worked and actual compensation.

Office / Work Environment

I had roaches in my office and no janatorial services. I have purchased my own office supplies.

Work-Life Balance

Non-existing. If you're a self-starter type, you won't have a life. You'll watch your less motivated peers leave at the 8 hr mark.

Company Image

There is hope for improvement if antiquated methods are illiminated.

Job Security

Limited life product w/ slow development of future business areas.

Handicapped Accessibility

For my position, it is not handicap friendly due to industrial access, bending, kneeling, squating and lifting expectations. I do not recommend my particular position for individuals w/ physical limitations.

Workplace Safety

Running wires through a crush-impact door is not the best practice. Safety is definitely not forefront.

Challenging Work

Not in a positive sense, but more of I shouldn't be doing 3 people's job, sacrificing work-life balance.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Give your PMs spending power. Stay on top of your administration. Do not hide the true cost of operation (unpaid OT and holidays) to appear CHEAP. Christmas eve is a holiday to everyone but you - reconsider this Mr. Grinch.

What I like about the company

Tip of the spare technology as the product matures.

What I dislike about the company

Lack of processes and resources.
