Creative ideas are claimed to be encouraged, but then shot down or ignored by the owners. Lots of backstabbing, constant tattling and blaming and cover-ups of mistakes goes on constantly.
Support from management
Management is extremely unsupportive. They lose their temper and yell when you ask questions or need help or you make a mistake. They always play the blame game instead of trying to correct a situation, so people feel like they have to hide problems or issues from them. They also always "shoot the messenger" who tries to alert them to situations that are problematic.
Teamwork within a department is usually pretty good, but very poor between departments and most people are too busy covering up their mistakes or looking to blame others and backstabbing each other to work together.
Freedom to work independently
The bosses micromanage everything...from what you can wear, to whom you can ask questions of, to whether or not you are allowed to touch the product, who can help someone and who cannot, what piece of paper you're allowed to write notes on, etc.
Important information, rule changes, procedures or deadlines are told to some people and/or departments and not others. Everyone is always confused about what is going on because they don't all get the same message or they're not told at all.
This company is mostly women, very few men.
Attitude towards older colleagues
I haven't seen any discrimination towards older people here.
Overall compensation for your work
The pay is very good.
Office / Work Environment
Too many people crowded into one building. Not enough restrooms, refrigerators, microwaves, space to accommodate everyone. Getting your job done is very stressful here due to lack of space.
They are so environmentally friendly that they removed things like bubble wrapping and packing peanuts and then blame the person shipping the parts when they get broken in the box because they're only padded with "environmentally friendly" paper.
This workplace is very flexible with scheduling to the point of where some people just seem to come and go as they choose, while others always show up on time. There are no real consequences for missing work, changing your schedule as often as you want to the detriment of others.
The company puts forth a very professional image to outsiders.
Jobs seem to be secure only for certain favored people. Otherwise you always have to worry about losing your job.
There's a ramp built for handicapped people, but the lack of space would probably not allow a person to maneuver safely through the work areas.
They have a safety committee, but all safety suggestions that come from it are completely ignored. It is not taken seriously.
The work is very challenging.
Inclusive / Diverse
Hispanics seem to be the favored race at this company.
What I like about the company
Some of the people that work there are amazing-they have a great work ethic, they genuinely care about the company and doing their job well. The company is flexible with schedules, which is a big help to people with children.
What I dislike about the company
The bosses have terrible tempers that they cannot control. They blow up at employees and each other. It is very uncomfortable to hear them yell at each other or watch them yell at your coworker right in front of everyone. They lie when the truth doesn't suit them. They yell at people who ask questions or need clarification. They favor certain people and isolate and demean and mistreat others. They cannot remember things they tell you to do and then will turn around and yell at you for doing them, then call you a liar if you point it out to them-even if you have multiple witnesses. They look to place blame whenever there's a mistake, they do nothing to correct certain issues or behavior problems when it comes from favored employees, they allow back stabbing, tattling and constant rumors to circulate and accuse people of things that they hear from the gossip-without regard as to whether or not it's true. They have also been heard referring to employees as "stupid, "idiots," "selfish," and "toxic," and have been overheard bad mouthing employees to other employees.
