Management tends to say one thing, and do another.
Support from management
A few years ago, management cared a lot more about its employees than they do now.
There is great teamwork in some groups, and cut-throat mentality in others. Makes cohesive interdepartmental working impossible.
Freedom to work independently
Some employees get to decide exactly what they want to do, (and don't want to do), and others just get stuck doing the leftover work.
Communication was okay.
Office / Work Environment
Work conditions were fine. Management cared about making sure employees had whatever they needed to make their work space comfortable and usable.
Was told I would get paid for remaining vacation, and in spite of having several days of vacation left, I received my final check. It showed total hours, and vacation. Instead of getting my pay AND vacation, the check showed 80 hours (at least one day short), and subtracted 7.5 hours for vacation.
I was secure in my job until someone else decided they wanted it. I was put in another area of our group, but it was foreign to me. Eventually, I was out of work due to not being able to get it all down.
Regular safety inspections are done, and monthly meetings with the safety committee. Any issues found are corrected as quickly as posisble.
The work was always challenging, and there was always plenty to learn.
Suggestions for improvement
- Keep up the employee functions, but listen to employees' opinions.
What I like about the company
Used to be a family environment, and employees were mostly happy. It was a great place to be, and management made sure it was fun.
What I dislike about the company
They quit caring about its employees and their opinions. Then they promoted people, causing others below them to quit. Instead of looking at what happened, they just didn't care.
