A very toxic environment bc management gives people that have worked for the company longer better regardless of if they actually do work hard.
Support from management
There was one particular management team that I felt this way with. However every single group after that just let the staff run themselves basically.
Whilst they liked the idea of 'teamwork makes the dream work', they never really encouraged it or made it seem like a priority to them.
Freedom to work independently
They certainly did bc management was mostly always in the building, but couldn't ever be found when needed. So they definitely had a lot of trust in the staff
I only rated so low bc they only ever really talked about the success, never what needed to be worked on.
Never had any issues with management and the unfair treatment of women, we had the same opportunities as the men.
Attitude towards older colleagues
They definitely treated the older employees that had worked there for 15-20 years like gold. Even when they weren't showing good effort!
There were definitely plenty of opportunities to grow, but you had to ask for the chance, it was never offered bc of the great job you do daily.
Overall compensation for your work
However, I was waiting tables so I can't attribute that to the company.
Office / Work Environment
For comfort purposes they always provided that for us.
They didn't recycle.
It does in the sense that your schedule is so flexible, but not too perfect bc some of management still expected you to put the company before your family.
I felt this way in the beginning of the working relationship, but by the middle/end I could no longer say that.
I felt that way throughout my employment there.
In every capacity
We were provided training to maintain a safe work environment, however the way we learned wasn't always enforced.
Never viewed the work to be very challenging after being in the industry for a decade.
Inclusive / Diverse
It wasn't looked down on, but it wasn't exactly always celebrated either.
Suggestions for improvement
- Once again, I feel like just having a strong and united management team would turn the company around for the better. Also, no favoritism and holding each team member accountable for their actions would change the dynamic and moral of the staff as a whole completely!
What I like about the company
I loved and respected how much time, labor and money they were donating to St.'Judes Children'sHospital EVERY YEAR! We had all kinds of fundraising events to raise money for them every year. That was the most positive experience I had working there.
What I dislike about the company
I just think that they need to work on their management team as a whole in every location. The lack of real leadership and the management team never being on the same page was always my biggest issue with the company bc it leaves no room for anyone to be held accountable when things went awry.
