Support from management
Managers were poorly selected because they had a conflict of interest. They determined who got each project, but they also made commissions on jobs, so of course they selected most and the best for themselves. Upper management was worse because they didn't bother to get to know us or the problems we faced. They made decisions based on one or two opinions. I feel that management had no integrity. They also did a poor job resolving conflicts (if they were even around), because they let their biases get in the way, before reviewing all the details.
There was almost zero teamwork between the production side and the sales side.
Women had the same opportunities, but they are not taken seriously. It is definitely a good-ol' boys club environment.
Overall compensation for your work
Benefits are not very appealing. Insurance is pretty costly and not very good. Paid time off for those there under 3 years is only 52 hours and they only pay for Christmas Day and Thanksgiving Day for holidays.
Nearly all of the employees that I knew of were seeking other work, because they are unhappy. The company has cultivated a terrible image for itself by charging high prices and providing poor-quality products. The cabinets themselves were well built, but they didn't have anyone in quality control, so little mistakes were missed and finishes were inconsistent.
No one's job is secure, because new management doesn't have a sense of responsibility to its employees well-being. They easily hire and fire.
