The culture was, during my years there, great for a long while. It was in decline when I departed.
Support from management
Like most places, the amount of support from management depends on which manager you have.
Some silo'ing, but teamwork within departments and sometimes across department lines was fairly common.
Freedom to work independently
I had a great deal of autonomy, but that was due largely to the work I did. Others were fairly tightly managed.
Communication was a weak point. There were attempts to communicate, but these were often after the fact and were not terrifically helpful.
There was no formalized career advancement process of which I was aware during my time there. Promotions seemed to be based largely on merit, but that meritorious performance did not always translate into success in the new role.
Office / Work Environment
Typical industrial setting.
I never felt pressured to work more hours than I reasonably could and my family was not only considered, but often valued.
I was, for a good long while, proud to work for this company. The product is an excellent idea and the people were - by and large - the finest kind.
I left the company because I am uncertain about their long term prospects. There had been some downsizing and reorganizing to try to get the house in order, but it may have been too little too late.
The work was varied. Some of it was challenging and with that I am well pleased. Some was not challenging.
What I like about the company
The people. The folks who worked there during my time were what made it.
What I dislike about the company
The lack of defined paths and processes. Communication was often an ad hoc affair and advancement was possible, but difficult to pin down.
