Company Culture

Company First; Employees Last

Support from management

Goals and Expectations were never clearly set; "Do Better."

Teamwork

There was always someone to tell you that you are wrong

Freedom to work independently

Work Independently = Work Alone all the time.

Internal Communication

Lots of communication, i.e email and phone meetings, but few decisions.

Gender Equality

Women do not apply for the field support positions.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Your OK if you are a relative or willing to travel 80%.

Career Development

The company says yes, but I could not experience advancement or move out of my position. Regional employment is very growth limited.

Overall compensation for your work

Regional employees are receive 80% of benefits to employees at other companies.

Office / Work Environment

Work from home and moderate flexibility with personal schedule.

Environmental Friendliness

Promotes environmental protection and recycling, but not outside the corporate office. The customer and subcontractors are responsible for disposing of company materials.

Work-Life Balance

Work first; Life last.

Company Image

I spoke very highly of the company, their products, and their services.

Job Security

There are few opportunities for promotion/advancement, or lateral movement as a regional employee. The roles and responsibilities change every year.

Handicapped Accessibility

Only at the corporate offices and manufacturing facilities.

Workplace Safety

It's your responsibility

Challenging Work

Every day is a different customer and a different issue.

Inclusive / Diverse

Opinions and ideas are not supported. Management always found faults, even when customers had praise of a job well done.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop holding on to an idea simply because you though it would work. Recognize that your employees are conveying what your customers want.

What I like about the company

As a new hire, there was a lot of support and education of their products.

What I dislike about the company

They refuse to recognize that their implementation of Six Sigma and Lean is not liked by customers.
