Run. Do not work here. Go to Greensboro, at least they pay fairly.

2.22

Company Culture

There is too much backstabbing and attempts to undermine other employees.

Teamwork

They breed the backstabbing culture

Freedom to work independently

They do in the sense that they let us work alone, but they always second guess every decision

Internal Communication

We are more than halfway through the fiscal year and I have yet to receive any input on my performance

Gender Equality

I firmly believe that I did not get a promotion because I am a woman

Career Development

They have very few advancement opportunities ince you hit a certain level

Overall compensation for your work

Nope. They screwed up a study on pay and now people under me make about what I make.

Office / Work Environment

They will not even allow a drink on the desk in the control room. It took an ADA request to get that.

Work-Life Balance

They don't care about holidays

Workplace Safety

We have safety classes, but some of the things they have us do are unsafe

Challenging Work

Water treatment is no joke

Inclusive / Diverse

They never want to hear our ideas

Suggestions for improvement

  • Fair pay for the work that we do.

What I like about the company

They rallied around me when I was first diagnosed with cancer.

What I dislike about the company

The upper echelon. They forget what it is like to be in the trenches, or were never even here.
