Suggestions for improvement

  • I believe everything at our company is fine as is.

What I like about the company

Co-workers are fun to work for. Everyone contributes to the work we do. Everyone contributes to bringing in food for everyone. Quiet office atmosphere.

What I dislike about the company

The leadership could use a little work. It's not motivating when it doesn't come from the top.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More staff would be helpful so we are not stretched thin. Paid bonuses would be nice although I guess there are ways they make up for this.

What I like about the company

Company luncheons on a fairly regular basis. Paid vacations, sick days and personal time along with holidays gives you plenty of time off. Benefits are really good. Enjoy listening to music in my own office every day.

What I dislike about the company

Short staffed makes for extra work.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would hire more individuals and work on fixing the infrastructure of the city.

What I like about the company

Yearly raises are a great perk. Paid vacation, sick and personal time. Company matched retirement program. Fellow co-workers get along great and we are always bringing food in to share. Vendors send food around Christmas time. Annual Christmas party is always great. Flexible with your time and working later or earlier to make up. Break room upstairs has drinks and water. Free coffee everyday. I have my own office and I listen to music while I work. Get to decorate my office.

What I dislike about the company

The overall management of the company is not the greatest. The decisions made regarding the city and the employees are less than satisfactory.
