Executive-centric. No ideas, decisions, or improvements can come from the field or the work force. Micromanaged by one VP
Support from management
None. executive level management micromanages all aspects of the business. Department Managers are relegated to simple traffic cops without any authority to make decisions or provide input. Centralized authority sits with one person
Departments function as independent silos, although they should be working in synch. The dependencies that are present are ignored and issues that arise are routinely ignored. Accounting functions as the central department though it produces nothing and is a generally late on everything
Freedom to work independently
None, heavy micromanagement. All work is strictly guided and reviewed by upper management.
One way, from the top down. Communication up is intentionally stifled
None. There is no opportunity to advance as the executive level management is not concerned with employee ambitions.
Overall compensation for your work
Grossly underpaid in all areas
Office / Work Environment
Antiquated. Systems are very archaic most computer systems and programs are from the early 2000's. The office is located in a run-down part of town. Graffiti is constantly being applied to the building and windows. A known drug house is located adjacent to the parking lot. The entrance is often a sleeping place for the homeless.
Antiquated systems means everything is printed out on paper. There are no recycle bins present
in early leave early
Only one handicapped spot for over 100 employees, of which at least 3 are handicapped.
No elevator in a 2 story building.
It is all simple, however it is made difficult due to the micromanagement
Inclusive / Diverse
a good cross section of the area
Suggestions for improvement
- Treat employees as an asset, not a liability. Trust people. Move, the current location is not conducive to a safe environment.
