Company Culture

The management sucks as far as communication, and extreme favoritism is shown when scheduling hours. You are told one thing and end up doing what everybody else doesn’t want to.

Teamwork

Favoritism and shown and proudly displayed. Almost racism

Freedom to work independently

Your on several cameras, and being watched by a whole bunch of people 24/7 plus screenshots and blast email you to everybody.

Internal Communication

Poor

Gender Equality

Yes

Attitude towards older colleagues

Yes most of the management are older males.

Career Development

I quit

Overall compensation for your work

It wasn’t

Office / Work Environment

Broken lights, faulty wiring in the computers that cause screens to randomly go out.

Environmental Friendliness

Yes

Work-Life Balance

Hours are ridiculous, especially due to the volume.

Job Security

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes

Workplace Safety

Yes

Challenging Work

Because of their lack of programming, you are forced to do everything old fashioned. You have to run several programs at once and document the many transactions you do. Plus benance that and your cash on a spreadsheet.

Inclusive / Diverse

Sorta.

Suggestions for improvement

What I dislike about the company

Certain jobs in the assembly area could be rough on the body.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Daily hundle as we have too many departments, and each employee may not have a chance to get to meet each other or does not even know what department do what specific task. It would be good if there is a certain time in a day where a cross department exchange would be nice. Second, we have employee discount for accessories like clothings and parts, however, it is not that easy to get access. It would be nice if they have a separate online portal where employees can buy discounted products online with the ID numbers.

What I like about the company

Friendly coworkers. Supportive and responsible managers. Willing to listen and act. No dramas between coworkers. Comfortable working environment. Well work-life balance. Free coffee and tea. Great break room, and great OT pay.

What I dislike about the company

So far none The only thing is this company is fairly chill and this causes some lazy employess to be lazy and drag the work time out.
