Support from management

Some of management try to help but for the most part they really don't care. They make you feel like your replaceable and it's a popularity contest

Teamwork

I stayed for 10yrs, with the exception of a 1yr break, but the other employees and supervisors are most of the reason I stayed. The company and upper management don't care and make you feel beneath them.

Gender Equality

They promote men faster and a lot of the men treat women like they don't know what their talking about even when you have been doing the job for years, longer than they have even worked for the company

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management needs to be more fair and respectful to employees. They need to stop promising raises that they have no intention of giving and constantly holding their power to give or not give raises over employees heads.

What I like about the company

i like that it's a fairly dependable stable job

Company Culture

The first 4 hours of my first day were "rules". Not allowed coffee at desk, not allowed to touch furniture (ex: resting your arms on divider walls to talk to co-workers), no personal items allowed on desks, ALL employees punch a time clock for arrival, departure, and for lunch. (I was 3 minutes late one morning, and within 5 minutes, HR walked over to my desk to find my reason for tardiness). Prohibited from walking on the grass outside, or walking in parking lot through any area other than "designated walk ways". Doctor appointments were handled with vacation time. When vacation time and 2 days of sick time was used up, any amount of absence went unpaid, even as a salaried employee. For those who had never worked anywhere else, they saw no issues with this sort of environment. Having worked elsewhere, I learned to obey the rules, but could not adapt to the culture.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Lighten up on all the rules and restrictions.

What I like about the company

The building was a very nice building.

What I dislike about the company

I mentioned previously about the culture and the rules. I personally found these too difficult to adapt to. Again, I would say for those who have never worked elsewhere, they may be able to adapt as some have. But I found that most who have seen the "outside world" didn't stay long.
