What I like about the company

This company treats you like family. If you have a personal situation come up, management doesn’t look poorly at you and they accept that things happen: very understanding.

What I dislike about the company

Communication. There seems to be too much management in certain areas which causes communication to either be lost in translation or nothing gets done because they always assume someone else is taking care of it.

What I like about the company

Very little. There were a few people there that I considered decent human beings, but none of them were in management.

What I dislike about the company

Sexist, Homophobic, and Transphobic remarks, even from the CEO. Gender Essentialism massively reinforced through gendered dress codes, general rhetoric, and company policy. I and the only other LGBT individual I met there both felt constantly unsafe. The only women they've ever hired on to their upper leadership is a VP, and they didn't get her till the mid 90's. Even then, they parade her around as an example of how "progressive" they are... which is quite a joke when the CEO greets every new hire himself by joking about the "wall of old white men" where every former CEO is pictured.
Employees are not treated like adults. Strict hours including delineated lunch breaks. Going out to your car for something you forgot requires you to ask your supervisor for permission, lest it be held against you.
On a visit to a branch, the branch manager joked to me (a Male presenting individual) that, in a hypothetical car accident between spouses on the same coverage, the woman would be at-fault because "of course it's the woman's fault".
The CEO, in a meeting with new hires six months into their job, asked us "What is a 'Man Cave'?" When a young woman gave a decently satisfactory answer (Something like "A place a man claims in a home as their own, to get away from others for a while"), the CEO responded dismissively with "That's such a woman answer", going on to clarify that the 'correct' answer is that it's a place that men are *forced* to hide in to get away from their wife and children.
The culture there precluded making HR complaints regarding these incidents, as I feared retaliation. Now that I've left, I've made these complaint clear. I'm certain they are being ignored as sour grapes of a former employee, regardless of the circumstances of what I consider my escape from that company.
