Meh

Freedom to work independently

No they had what they called 200% accountability. Meaning two supervisors had to be present at anytime in order to touch a tool to begin a task. In their defense this was a response to several accidents happening in quick succession.

Gender Equality

Actually women were treated better, kept longer, and had significantly more opportunities for advancement, however only if said women was not ugly,so yea not so great.

Career Development

Few if any opportunities for advancement in the company past job supervisor.

Overall compensation for your work

Good pay but no benefits, no sick days, no vacation

Job Security

Job could be over at any minute with no warning. In fact I just got laid off after being told I would be definitely working for another 4 monthes.

What I like about the company

The pay.

What I dislike about the company

They have no future for most of the people working for them. Opportunities for advancement are few and far between and seem to depend on if you are an attractive woman or if one of the bosses takes a liking to you. Time in doesn't do anything to get advanced. I've seen people get a supervisor qualification in the first year or moved to administrative assignments without the position being offered to anyone else. There is no way to know when you will be laid off so just assume you will be laid off tomorrow. Do not listen to higher up's telling you that you will work because that is probably when you will get let go.

What is the company culture like at Day & Zimmermann, Inc.? Help others make critical decisions by letting them know what it’s like to work here!

Company Culture

Supervisors and managers play the blame game. No understanding of fairness or trust.

Support from management

Leadership promises help and support but never gives anything.

Teamwork

There is no understanding of teamwork by the management team.

Freedom to work independently

employees are assigned duties of responsibility that are related to their job description.

Internal Communication

Employees are often never told the truth but instead told lies to hide the truth or suppress issues.

Gender Equality

Most employees do not get career opportunities especially for advancement. Management takes great time and effort pointing out flaws and missed goals

Attitude towards older colleagues

Many older employees are forced into early retirement or laid off in favor of younger less experienced people who they can pay far less.

Career Development

Employees are rarely offered opportunities for further training. Training that is offered is usually inadequate.

Overall compensation for your work

Wages and salaries do not match responsibilities. Employees are consistently added responsibilities but never compensated. Generally when someone is laid off or quits, an employee is added the responsibility of that person and a replacement is never hired.

Office / Work Environment

Due to the nature of the business there is a good culture of safety and proper working conditions

Environmental Friendliness

Another culture that seems to be based on the requirements of the business to meet the laws but no more.

Work-Life Balance

Certain positions have no help or backup. Many times an employee may go weeks without a day off. In the managements eyes, employees should put the job first and family shouldn't be considered. But the managers will take weeks at a time off.

Company Image

The company tried to put up a good image to the public, but when talking to the employees, there are rarely any who talk favorably about the company or the way they treat employees.

Job Security

There was never any real job security. Positions were eliminated based on a manager not liking an employee more than financial or organization restructuring

Handicapped Accessibility

Due to the nature of the business, those with disabilities were not able to access many areas due to safety.

Workplace Safety

The company does provide sufficient training to ensure an accident-free workplace, but many areas do not meet the OSHA standards

Challenging Work

I feel proud of my work and proud of my accomplishments, but anger and frustration on the paths required and forced on by management

Inclusive / Diverse

The company does preaches inclusiveness and diversity, but does not practice.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Complete organizational restructure from top down to build a better working environment and culture that is fare and just

What I like about the company

I enjoyed many of the employees I worked with, the projects I was able to work on, and some of the challenges of those projects.

What I dislike about the company

Managers taking a draconian approach to management and them not taking responsibility for anything.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Improve business development effort. Be willing to keep workers on a reduced-hour/reduced pay basis when work declines. Be willing to keep workers on overhead for a time in slack periods.

What I like about the company

It is a friendly place with most employees and managers being approachable. Salaries and benefits are relatively good.

What I dislike about the company

Inconsistency in workload. Too many eggs in far too few baskets. Inability to keep employees productive enough to support them. I have worked there twice, had good reviews, yet have not been able to remain employed more that 26 months contiguously. I have seen other employees who were doing a good job terminated abruptly apparently when corporate office in Philly decided to consolidate functions. Layoffs are common, seemingly more so in some groups than others. Designers are very disposable to management.
