Reviews

Company Culture

Had some nicer people to work with, but management was under qualified.

Support from management

No. Never.

Teamwork

It was encouraged, but didn't happen often.

Freedom to work independently

There wasn't a single department at that company that wasn't micro managed.

Internal Communication

There was one annual review and they always made sure there was one bad part of your review just so it looked the management was doing something.

Gender Equality

There were plenty of women in this company, but most were not in management

Attitude towards older colleagues

Employees over 45 were treated wonderfully

Career Development

I was never moving up in that company, no matter how much education or training I had.

Overall compensation for your work

Health care was paid for so that made the compensation bearable.

Office / Work Environment

When it was really cold or hot, they would say the building was just too big to temper properly.

Environmental Friendliness

There were recycling bins and they asked employees to stop printing so much, but that's about it

Work-Life Balance

Great benefits including time off

Company Image

Glad I got out of there.

Job Security

It was a very stable position, as long as you show up, you couldn't get fired.

Handicapped Accessibility

absolutely had everything ADA compliant

Workplace Safety

plenty of fire drills and it one of the safest neighborhoods in the state

Challenging Work

It was the easiest job I've ever had. Didn't have anything to do on most days.

Inclusive / Diverse

No one was allowed to ever challenge an idea. The typical saying was "well that's how it was done before".

Suggestions for improvement

  • Definitely make it easier to report poor management. There should be better processes when it comes to hiring people. You don't always have to hire in house. Some times I would be better not to.

What I like about the company

I met some wonderful people there. That's the benefit of a larger company. You have plenty of people to interact with and it makes some of the rough parts of a stubborn, stuck in their ways, boring job a little easier. The time off was helpful to enjoy time with family. The health care was paid for and it was good coverage. The flex time was helpful for those who commuted from long distances.

What I dislike about the company

Upper management has no idea what they're doing. They couldn't perform the jobs of their employees if they were forced to. They just hope that nothing happens to their employees so they can collect a paycheck. They don't want to think for themselves and just say "well that's how it was done before". It was exhausting working for under qualified managers.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I don't feel great working there because the company is ruining people's lives by taking away a large portion of their pension.

What I like about the company

Relatively easy work with travel opportunities. Cafeteria allowance. Insurance paid for.

What I dislike about the company

They are taking money away from people's pensions because they don't have the money. Obviously bad money management. Don't work there unless you have less than 5 years till retirement because shorty after that the company won't exist.
