Suggestions for improvement

  • A more cooperative work environment where employees are free to give their input and be more creative instead of a cog in the wheel.

Being able to telework once per week is the best experience. Other than that I work for a bunch of passive aggressive individuals.

What I dislike about the company

Too many layers of management in order to make decisions.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Change in leadership. Current leaders are blind to what is needed and lower level managers do not know their job.

What I like about the company

There have been plenty of opportunities to learn the job and participate on special projects. The work life balance is amazing and management is supportive of time needed for family matters. The job itself is easy and minimal stress.

What I dislike about the company

The micromanagement needs to stop including the constant changes to procedures. Promotion should be based on ability and not friendship. Employees with potential should be given opportunities to be groomed like in corporate.
