Company Culture

Company doesn't appreciate the concept of inclusion!

Support from management

My last manager before I was down sized spent 90 percent of her time behind closed doors which didn't provide much leadership for the department!

Teamwork

No true concept of teamwork --- it's like a fish bowl (as everyone is so into tearing one another down).

Freedom to work independently

My manager just wanted to provide direction from behind a door. I was verbally reprimanded for securing a new hire and the package was different from her direction but she missed the bigger picture --- we closed a deal and candidate was happy! Perfect example of small mindedness.

Internal Communication

You typically are told of news on the fly ... Very poor at planning and executing properly.

Gender Equality

Non existent!

Attitude towards older colleagues

No respect unless you are doing non professional things.

Career Development

Non existent!

Overall compensation for your work

Favoritism at play!

Office / Work Environment

Typical manufacturing environment.

Environmental Friendliness

Fake - never real which is so sad. Feels like being on a playground!

Work-Life Balance

You are constantly working on items that goes nowhere which takes away most negatively from trying to balance the work life.

Job Security

Poor management so never know if you are working the next day. In December 2017 associates worked 12 hour days 6 to 7 days a week then following January associates were on shut down. Now this could have been avoided if the business model reflected the trend of orders over time.

Handicapped Accessibility

Non existent!

Workplace Safety

Ok

Challenging Work

Working on non evolving projects doesn't make for challenge just busy work.

Inclusive / Diverse

Non existent!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Listen to the masses and not just the executive level who by most account are removed from the masses!

What I like about the company

The associates who want to work hard.

What I dislike about the company

No just providing an honest reflection of my experience.
