Stay away unless you have no choice

1.89

Company culture

Culture runs thru HR like a dictatorship

Support from Management

Upper management is disconnected from reality.

Teamwork

A lot of walls but some departments try to work together.

Level of Autonomy

Too much paranoia from upper management that what really goes on will get out.

Gender Equality

Minimal opportunity for female management members.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Definite bias towards older associates and there is an unwritten age where you are replaced unless you are a Corporate HR Director favorite.

Career Development

Very few associates are given the opportunity for training to advance and restrictions are unrealistic when it does happen.

Overall Compensation for your work

Production pay is ok. Salary is a joke. Plan on getting lowballed on any offer.

Office/Work Environment

Most areas are pits with little space or privacy to work at your desk or take calls.

Eco-consciousness

ESH group really has no clue what is going on.

Work-Life Balance

Plan on living here if you decide to work here.

Company Image

The name is great but once you learn what really happens your opinion changes quickly.

Job security

Long history of eliminating people. Corporate HR Director enjoys eliminating associates and even talks about it in front of other associates.

Inclusive/Diverse

Policies all run thru HR and anyone who is not on the Corporate HR Director's buddy list will find their career cut short quickly.
