Company Culture

We are all just a number to the corp management team. No human treatment is affordable.

Support from management

Non existent.

Teamwork

Them against us. Corporate plays to their own sheet music, and then hires their own conductors.

Freedom to work independently

Never allowed.

Internal Communication

No communication exits in a vacuum!

Gender Equality

Good ol gals allowed too.

Career Development

Non existent

Work-Life Balance

Work is balanced solely on the shoulders of home life.

Company Image

I would have to believe the company image as seen thru the eyes of the customer could not get any lower.

Inclusive / Diverse

Good ol boy network abounds!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Complete overhaul of the Corp management team/structure.

What I like about the company

The paycheck doesnt bounce, yet!

What I dislike about the company

Management. Back stabbing. Hiding stuff from customers. Bosses buddies get advanced . No raises. No cell phone reimbursement, but expected to use personal cell phone at all times.

Company Culture

there isn't any real culture at the plant production is the only culture.

Support from management

Support? What support?

Teamwork

Management pits every department against the other.

Freedom to work independently

everyone works independently of everyone else

Internal Communication

Decisions are made haphazardly, at the spur of the moment dependent upon the wind direction.

Office / Work Environment

facilities are just adequate for a fairly new building.

Environmental Friendliness

There is recycling of the scrap parts, but not much else is apparant

Work-Life Balance

Has become better thanks to corporate mandating NO OVERTIME, otherwise management would still have us on weekend work hours too.

Workplace Safety

Compliant -perhaps.
Training - No.

Inclusive / Diverse

Do they value it? or are they stuck with it?

What I like about the company

Somewhat better pay than unemployment

What I dislike about the company

Long hours, lack of true leadership by example, favoritism shown toward some,

Support from management

Only if you are related to someone in a management position.

Internal Communication

Great at one way.... from the top down!

Attitude towards older colleagues

Seems to be the first to be rid of.

Overall compensation for your work

This is a major concern of all.

Office / Work Environment

Office is an ice box

Environmental Friendliness

Everything is throw away. recycling? Huh!

Work-Life Balance

100% Balanced = 90% Work + 10% Home Life
