Stated to be a Christian based company however not conducted fairly in a lot of cases.
Support from management
You work hard and it goes unnoticed. They don't try and help you advance in pay or title from within. They would rather hire from the outside make you train a person that comes in above you or with more pay.
The employees work well together. However management and the uppers not so well. Communication is laking.
Freedom to work independently
At times it is even. However there are times when your work load is high while others do little to nothing.
Communication in this company is very lacking. One hand doesn't know what the other is doing.
Office / Work Environment
New facility before I left seemed to make it a bit nicer. All of corporate under one roof.
Not much to say here as I believe this is answered above.
Great vacation packages. Time off is usually approved. Only thing I would say is wrong is that even if you have yet to earn time off they make you use it and if you quit or are fired before it is earned you must pay it back. A person should not be forced to be paid when needing time off especially if is in an emergency situation.
Benefits are excellent as they are the same across the board. Compensation on the other hand is not to par with national or even local averages in most cases.
You feel proud when you accomplish something. However you are not rewarded even if you are going above and beyond what the norm would do.
Inclusive / Diverse
Only when it comes from certain people. If you are not in that crowd your ideas are put on the back burner until one that is in acts as though they came up with that same idea you stated months ago.
Suggestions for improvement
- Appreciate your employees so that they will want to stay and grow with your company. A revolving door atmosphere is not attractive.
What I like about the company
A great place to learn.
What I dislike about the company
The unfairness with the leadership.
