Company Culture

New leadership is totally clueless. Nothing but angst ridden #MeToo mentality

Support from management

Management is inept.

Teamwork

The few remaining old timers are great. I feel sorry for them as they are still trying to fix the problems.

Freedom to work independently

You will comply. Resistance is futile.

Gender Equality

#MeToo rules all the thinking

Career Development

You’ll spend 10 years+ in the same job at largely the same pay. Or you are “privileged “ and will get promoted every month.

Overall compensation for your work

They lowball everyone. “It’s cost adjusted down for the area “

Office / Work Environment

They can’t make up their mind. Constantly rearranging the furniture.

Work-Life Balance

80+ hour work weeks. Cancelled vacations. Constant threat of layoffs.

Company Image

Once upon a time their name meant something. Now they are living off of nothing but good will.

Job Security

Management philosophy is that they get the best work when everyone is afraid of losing their jobs.

Handicapped Accessibility

They don’t know the difference between reserved parking and handicap parking.

Workplace Safety

Random explosions are a normal part of life.

Challenging Work

No one does what they used to do. They cornered the market.

Support from management

was always able to knock on the managers door or, even the Partners door without a problem. I may not always get my way, but I have always been treated fairly

Teamwork

there is a consistent feeling of team spirit; we all help each other. other former employees have moved from job to job; I wonder why?

Freedom to work independently

we work independently but have a team to count on when I need them.

Internal Communication

always am able to speak up and be heard. too sad those former employees are unhappy; they apparently didn't want to succeed. some people don't want to do the work for anything.

Career Development

I can move up salary wise, but sometimes some jobs do not go higher re responsibilities. That's ok because they have offered me to cross train and I can still make more.

Overall compensation for your work

I have the ability to work harder and to make more salary. they pay more than downtown firms do.

Office / Work Environment

it has been a bit stressful and some of us get overwhelmed, but, at the end of the day, we all work together fine.

Company Image

it isn't 100% because of reviews like the others that are just horrible and untrue. if you do your job and work as a team, everything is great. when you expect everyone to do everything for you or you do a terrible job. what do you expect the employer to do; keep you? they give you 90 days to train and they give 100% but when you don't want to do the job, what do you expect? I have a great experience.

Challenging Work

if I do not feel challenged, I am able to cross train and can help in other departments.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I have no recommendations. I speak and they listen.

What I like about the company

most everything; sometimes the work is overwhelming but if I get crazy stressed, which is not often, I get the help. what I like is the team and the firm events.

What I dislike about the company

the former employees that tell lies and are just unhappy so all they do is speak badly about an employer. They need to move on and grow up.

What I like about the company

I work with pretty awesome people who do their best to make things go smoothly.

What I dislike about the company

Administration could do a better job of observing the classroom environment to see what exactly goes on during class time so that they have an idea of how things are going for both students and teachers/assistants.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More welcoming from HR department. It's very intimidating at first.

What I like about the company

I enjoy the work I do with our members and outside entities. I'm fulfilled for the most part, and have a supportive manager and friendly co-workers.

The CEO is kind tries to set a positive culture. Laid-back for an office job, clean facilities and the location is really convenient.

Benefits are good and time off is very generous.

A lot of opportunities for training and development of your own skills and knowledge.

Ability to work from home often especially during inclement weather- a nice perk.

The company is focused on quality for both employees and customer, including members and providers. Staff is encouraged to provide excellent customer service and I think it mostly comes across that way.

We work hard to make sure our staff matches the diversity of our members when it comes to gender, race, language, etc. This keeps us honest with the needs of our population.

Thrift fitness center is a nice perk, and the on site yoga classes cycle through nicely and help to destress.

The CEO is open to staff suggestions on ways to improve processes and takes them into consideration.

I have almost always felt respected and heard as a professional.

Many people have been at the company for many years- shows loyalty and satisfaction with their job.

Work/life balance is promoted.

Opportunities for promotion in certain work areas.

What I dislike about the company

Management can be top heavy and not always in line with what is happening at lower levels.
