You are granted a great deal of Autonomy to get the job done.
Support from management
Targets can be at times unrealistic
Each office is ranked against other offices resulting in a competitive environment that does not foster teamwork in all cases.
Communication is generally good. Results are published company wide and regular meetings are held
Majority of upper management is female.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Seniors seem to be supported
Advancement opportunities are good for those who word hard and produce good results
Overall compensation for your work
Compensation is all over the board. They will pay good employees what they are worth when employees request it.
Office / Work Environment
Some offices are better than others but all provide adequate equipment
Very socially aware. A great deal of importance is placed on giving back to causes.
Work life balance is difficult due to 24 hour nature of work. Work is expected to be completed regardless of time constraints
Good corporate image in the community
Job security is not guaranteed to anyone at any level. Most employees do not stay beyond the 1,3, or 5 year mark. Work environment feels unstable and the fear of restructuring or changing needs can be felt
If needed, the company would provide. Limited number of disabled employee exist
Work is challenging and rewarding
Inclusive / Diverse
Some diversity exists at all levels but less diverse in upper management.
Suggestions for improvement
- Company owner could spend time in the locations and talk with lower level staff to get a better picture of what really happens at individual locations instead of talking only with Vice Presidents.
What I like about the company
They are great at providing incentives and rewards for great work. The culture is unlike anything I've ever experienced. You either love it with all that you are or hate it. For those who buy in to the culture, the environment can be very rewarding.
What I dislike about the company
The feeling that you are never secure in your position. Also, work life balance is difficult. You will sacrifice a lot to move up within the company.
