Company Culture

Loved the family atmosphere and the wonderful gatherings, on AND off campus.

Support from management

My manager ALWAYS had my back, as well as HIS managers! We were not "separated" by management levels. Upper level managers interacted with us, as well. We were always kept informed as best as possible.

Teamwork

Our group was top notch at teamwork. Everyone always helping each other out.

Freedom to work independently

My manager truly believed in our skills, and always gave us the freedom to do what it takes, to get the job done. And he was always readily available for advice, tips, insight, and approvals.

Internal Communication

Communication was always good. Typical company miscommunications (between divisions) would sometimes happen. But the managers pretty much kept everyone informed, as best as possible.

Gender Equality

As far as I could see, the company was VERY strong on gender equality.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Respect for older employees was very high, especially to those with many years of experience of the job.

Career Development

Did not really see room for career growth at our division, for the immediate future, but there were possibilities on the horizon. Most of the career growth was happening at the Canada division.

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation for my work was generally good. Our particular division probably would have compensated better, but they were under the salary "guide" of the corporate office, in Canada.

Office / Work Environment

Typical cubicle office environment. Sometimes a little noisy, due to the relaxed atmosphere, which sometimes made it hard to carry phone conversations with suppliers. But the environment of a relaxed atmosphere always outweighed the slight inconvenience of noisy phone calls.

Environmental Friendliness

The company believes in being "green". They may not have as much green processes in place as some companies, but they are doing their part to achieve a green environment.

Work-Life Balance

Excellent work-life balance! Being like a small family, we encouraged each other to take care of home life, when needed. Because we could always rally and pick up the slack for a "teammate", that would allow the person to take care of any home life issues. A big part of that privilege, was due to our manager, who strongly believes in a well balanced work/home life.

Company Image

The company's image was not high-profile within the consumer sector, but was rising fast in the commercial/private sector. Given that, I was very proud and excited about the products we manufactured, and how integral our products are within the high-security industry.

Job Security

Being that the company was one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., job security was high, as long as I was performing to the expectations of my job requirements.

Handicapped Accessibility

The building is very handicap friendly.

Workplace Safety

The company is in strict compliance of workplace safety. It is one of the metrics they strongly measure themselves, and ALWAYS striving for 100% compliance.

Challenging Work

The work is VERY challenging and fast-paced, due to a fast-rising company. The reward is the satisfaction of getting the job done successfully, in order to get the products built and shipped on time.

Inclusive / Diverse

The company always had solid processes in place, but was open to any ideas that might improve the process.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The only improvement I could suggest, is better communication and coordination between divisions (Canada and Texas).

What I like about the company

I loved everything about this company. Had I not had to relocate out-of-state, I would have loved to retire there.

What I dislike about the company

The only dislike I could say I had, was corporate management decisions. Sometimes decisions were made that challenged the work process and work load at our lower levels. But that happens at almost any company.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Do not accept any offer from them. Being jobless is better than working there

What I like about the company

Nothing at all.
Waste of time and life.
The organizational culture ruins your personality.
