Company Culture

Culture remained as "good ole" boy culture. If you didn't begin with the company, you wrre an outsider.

Support from management

Top leadership was unavailable. Company goals were not disseminate to subordinates. No room for advancement and company and its business parnters are plagued with racism.

Teamwork

Departments were in competition instead of working together. It was a "cut throat" environment.

Freedom to work independently

No autonomy present

Internal Communication

The communication was sparse. The only information that was given was of performance that highlighted :good ole boy: top performers.

Career Development

None

Overall compensation for your work

Lowest compensation in the industry.

Office / Work Environment

Workers worked at their own pace in order to make money. Hours were unlimited because of the "cut throat" environment.

Work-Life Balance

No work life balance. They don't care.

Job Security

Can be terminated for the smallest infraction.

Challenging Work

No challenge because there was no room for advancement. The work eas like processing widgets.

Inclusive / Diverse

Staff had no opinions or input on processes throughout the company.

What I dislike about the company

Leadership was not available .

Company Culture

The culture was - the owner was always mad because he wasn't making enough money.. HE WOULD BASICALLY TELL IS EXACTLY - THAT

Support from management

Very aggressive and poor training, Extraordinarily unrealistic expectations. If you were not a manager your opinion received eye rolls and smirks.

Freedom to work independently

The work load was INSANE! and you didn't dare complain. They would give you a months worth of work and expect you to get it done in a 40hr week..

Internal Communication

We had monthly office meeting where we went over all profits and numbers.

Gender Equality

I felt like females and males were treated equally. There were quite a few woman in higher up levels, possibly more women than men.

Career Development

There are possibilities to move from one department to another. Cross training was not really an option though..

Overall compensation for your work

We could get salary but hinted to work every waking hour.. We also received commissions once our files went to closing BUT we would work on a file for months and months and finally when it was days away from closing, the company would reassign the files to close under someone laws name so NO ONE receives the commissions.. when our department attempted to discuss this with management, management refused to make changes..

Office / Work Environment

Yes

Work-Life Balance

You were expected to work 40hrs in the office BUT you were expected to get your months worth of work to be completed in 1 weeks time so.... You worked evenings and weekends from home to get it done. You could take off whenever you wanted within reason..

Company Image

The majority of employees dreaded daily life due to this employer.. Many would quit without notice.

Job Security

I felt you were set up to fail BUT they would hang onto must employees because so many would leave on their own without notice.. So, if you didn't quit the likelihood of you being "let go" was slim.

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes

Workplace Safety

I never felt unsafe but I do not recall ever being shown emergency exits in case of an emergency.

Challenging Work

The work was challenging but you did not have any time to be proud of yourself. Usually if you were proud of something it would get shot down that you didn't get more work done.. NOTHING was appreciated.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop coming across so condescending and intimidating. Consider listening to the employees concerns and opinions (if they aren't too afraid to speak) Treat them like humans NOT like slave dogs. No one wants to hear how much more money the owner wants to proffit for himself.. DONT MOVE FILES THAT ARE READY TO CLOSE/SELL/RECORD TO SOMEONE ELSE SO NO ONE GETS PAID THEIR COMMISSION!!

What I like about the company

The office is located around the corner from Bethesda Row.. VERY accessible to metro.. That's about it..

What I dislike about the company

Everything!.. Management was selfobsorbed, condescending and in many cases verbally aggressive.. The work load was insanely unrealistic. They would arrange so (in many cases) the files you should have been receiving commissions on would be moved around in such a way, no one would get paid for them..
