Company Culture

(Corporate Office) Buckner is working on their company culture. I believe they are doing a good job of it. They offer a great breakfast for employees once a month, as well as other fun activities throughout the year. You can expect the leaders to be friendly as well as the rest of the staff.

Support from management

As oftentimes happens, key but lower ranked employees aren't asked their opinions on ideas/decisions that may have the most affect on them. Or communication is given after the fact rather than before. I suppose this is normal for the majority of companies.

Teamwork

Both of the teams I worked with were great at working together. Other departments may vary.

Freedom to work independently

This totally depends on which department you work for and who your supervisor is. All of my managers during my time there were great at asking if processes were working well, if I needed anything, etc.

Internal Communication

There is a monthly meeting with the CEO. I would say that there is communication but it tends to be a little vague. However, I'm one of those people who would rather over communicate than run the risk of under communicating. I feel like this is an issue that every company can work on.

Gender Equality

Buckner has a good mix of executive staff. Woman are treated equally to men. Pay is equal.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I was one of the younger employees at the Corporate office. People tend to stay employed with Buckner for long periods of time. They are certainly appreciated.

Career Development

You can find support, but this aspect needs work. (Depending on your department. I actually had great support in mine.) The more experienced tend to not use those with less experience to their full potential. I see that as a problem not only because some aren't mentoring, but many were coming up on retirement and not downloading all of the information they have after working for the company for decades.

Overall compensation for your work

The salaries are pretty standard but maybe a little low for the area. However, the benefits are fantastic!

Office / Work Environment

The corporate office is beautiful. You can decorate your own office. Great location!

Environmental Friendliness

Buckner is socially aware, but not in the more popular ways. They prefer to focus on human issues rather than environmental.

Work-Life Balance

Buckner provides and great amount of holiday and paid time off.

Company Image

I'm giving this three stars because it is something that can be worked on. There are and always will be disgruntled employees. However, Buckner really is working on employee satisfaction. Satisfaction and image will vary by location. Some locations are more laid back and relaxed than others. Depending on whom you report to and who runs your department will contribute (or not) to how satisfied you are and how you view the company.

Job Security

The finances are stable, however when I left the company they were reorganizing. I did not leave due to reorganization however some from other departments were reorganized. One particular area within the company tends to reorganize frequently. However, Jobs are not typically lost when they reorganize.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Have a clear communication more frequently. Have a mentor for each new employee, specifically at the Corporate office. Don't be afraid to work yourself out of a job.

What I like about the company

People are very friendly and overall it was a great place to work.

What I dislike about the company

Lots of restructuring tended to be a frustration got many. It also tended to promote a feeling of distrust in leadership. (Do they know what they want? What they're doing?)
