Company Executives were always patient and understanding. I learned a lot from this company as a start up. I moved on for other opportunities.
Support from management
Upper Management always took care of the subordinates such as myself. The owners "care for their people" as they often said. It was true.
Team work was always emphasized. One owner was prior military, Marine Corps, I believe. It showed. Great effort to always work this way.
Freedom to work independently
For the most part I was left alone with enough autonomy to do what I had to to make my projects successful. I appreciated that. Micro-management is not a good thing.
For the most part, communication was not an issue. Occasionally, the powers that be needed to sync their thoughts before a formal meeting so that they expressed the same intentions for company direction.
Plenty of work to be distributed to the men and women equally. Team mentality, no matter the gender mix. We had a lot of fun working together rather than against each other.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Respect for elders was important to the owners. Not too many elderly people however in this company.
Not a lot of room for advancement as it was a couple of owners and a few of us employees. Owners always encouraged self-improvement and education.
Overall compensation for your work
I was paid fairly. Of course we always want more, but the owners and exec's were more than generous.
Office / Work Environment
Awesome work environment. Mostly on the road for all of us, but we worked well together in person or via computer or phone. Great sense of humor with all.
Very environmentally oriented owners. No doubt.
I was always told that there would be rare occasion to have to take my work home with me. Owners always wanted our off time to be about us individually, not about work. That was refreshing. Of course there were times that I had to take my work home, but it was always my choice.
Mentality was the "each of us is the company." Company image and reputation is extremely valuable.
No doubt this company will grow and mature responsibly. Never was worried about job security.
No need for this with the staff but totally supported if there was a need.
Safety was job one. Very safety conscious owners and management.
Our work was challenging at times, but manageable.
Inclusive / Diverse
Owners and staff were always open minded and tolerant of difference. Good culture for diversity.
Suggestions for improvement
- Owners need to delegate more work projects.
What I like about the company
The general atmosphere. Open minded attitudes of the owners.
What I dislike about the company
Too small and needs to grow a bit faster. Otherwise they are on the right track.
