Suggestions for improvement
- Pay attention to what is being said by employees as they seek help and assistance and once you push them out, read their exit interviews for the truth about how managers and supervisors are actually treating the employees.
I like about the employer
The benefits were the best thing about this job.
I dislike about the employer
The culture is deplorable. It is too heavy with upper level management with a "do as I say, don't do as I do" mentality and they are not held accountable to a level anywhere near what employees are held to. It is incredibly unreasonable in that respect. They hold occasional trainings to push stronger ways to be a better leader/supervisor but if those approaches get used, they get upset. People get written up even though they haven't violated any policies, instead perhaps they called management out on bad behavior or performance. Certain department supervisors are too old school and need to make way for those wanting to be more cutting edge and progressive. Dedicated, efficient and effective staff are seen as a threat instead of an asset.
