Great, everyone works together to finish projects and expand their knowledge. We have a great group of diverse individuals who respect and accept each other. The company does their best to make sure the office comradery is at its finest and encourages us to continue to bond. It really makes waking up to go to work enjoyable everyday. We also work comfortably in our own offices. Drama free environment that makes it joyful going to work.
Support from management
We have great management. The two brothers- partners and another manager are always available to help. they are so good at multi tasking and reviewing ones work. The other manager has been with the company 20+ years. She always takes her time to go over any questions or assist any way she can. if you don't understand or know something she makes sure to dedicate time to you.
Team members are often in each others offices helping each other out. Management has team training when necessary. The training is great because we all get a chance to chime in and ask questions or demonstrate what we are learning with team members. We also all have the accessibility to call each other for quick questions on projects or anything, really.
Freedom to work independently
The partners trust everyone to work independently but based on individual experience they stay open to questions and guidance. If you dont have to much experience they gradually work you up, if you are willing to learn and work on correcting mistakes. I've never felt restricted from having my own system of working. The partners have always encouraged me to work however makes it best and easiest for me.
There is regular communication in the work place. Every door is open and welcoming. We are informed as a team of successes & challenges in a team meetings, when necessary. We are all on board daily with one another with what we can do better or what we are doing great at.
I think we dont only have gender equality but plenty of diversity, its beautiful. We have team members from different race, culture, ethnicity. Each with their own beliefs and lifestyle. No ones is made to feel like they cant be themselves. I work with females and males.
Attitude towards older colleagues
As long as I've worked for the company, I have witnessed everyone given equal opportunity, no matter their age, gender, ethnicity etc. The only ones who would say different is of course, past employees. The way I see it is, you're not going to leave a rotten apple in the middle of a basket of good apples, because the quicker they all start to do the same. Everyone is given the same opportunity, it just depends on how they want to use it.
There is plenty of opportunity to further establish ones career. The bosses offer different assistance to reach professional goals as well.
Overall compensation for your work
Yes, I get paid appropriately for what I do. I have been given raises and promotions during my growth and hard work for the company. And the opportunity is available to anyone willing to work just as hard for them.
Office / Work Environment
The office is on the nicer end. We have individual offices, kitchen, restrooms, conference room, copy room, supply room etc. There is good lighting throughout the building along with thermostats we can adjust ourselves. In our offices we have cool ergonomic desk, 2 desktops and a laptop, a phone, and all other necessary supplies we need to complete our task. as far as decorations, everything is nice.
Environmental friendliness is dependent on each individual. As the bosses dont like to push anything on anyone.
We have all had a time where we needed to take care of things at home, run errands, go to the doctor, stay home because we are sick etc. The partners never give us a hard time because they know we have a life outside of work that we need to nourish too. They have also needed their time to handle business away from the office. Our team is more like a family, when one of us is away from the office we all feel comfortable to show our support to each other. We go out of our way to help internally and externally...because we want to and because we care about each other. from helping with the work load to sending a text/ email or call to who ever is out, to offer our self and wish them well.
I am very proud to work for this company. I've been at other jobs where I dreaded even waking up to get ready and deal with the work environment. I dont feel that here. The type of accounting we do is interesting. The owners really represent their company well and have selected a team that can do the same.
I can say my job is one I can be at for years to come. I feel stable and secure enough to even plan my future outside of work. Such as having a family of my own or buying a home.
Yes, we have a handicap accessible office.
Yes! there is a burglary and fire system put in place. There is fire extinguishers, an emergency exit, and a first aid kit.
It can be challenging at times but for a person who loves growth, challenge is welcomed. It is nice to have team members who can help trouble shoot issues with you or share their knowledge so you can also advance. With time, patience and confidence I have gained producing quality work. I am always working on something but at the same time dont get overwhelmed.
Inclusive / Diverse
Team members are welcomed to share ideas and opinions and that goes for anything. I have also shared my personal opinions and ideas and they have been acknowledged and/ or supported. It feels good to be able to be open in a work place and not be scared to be shut down.
Suggestions for improvement
- I dont know if there is any improvements I can suggest. The company should keep doing what they do for the best of the team and their self. I've seen people come and go and have seen the outcome, we have a really amazing group of people we work with everyday. The ones who are no longer with us are gone because at the end of the day they weren't a good fit individually, with the team, or even with their work ethic. Thanks to executive decisions, we have the work environment that we very much enjoy. I applaud the bosses for creating this for us through trial and error.
What I like about the company
Our clients are lovely, the work place is peaceful, we have a great team, the company takes care of us, the bosses dont micromanage because they know we are here to do what they hired us for, we have lunch together everyday but Fridays are the day we all agree to gather and order food. We celebrate our birthdays and holidays, have benefits, and are appreciated for the work we do. that is to say the least. And all that amounts to being able to say the work load is the least of it. Because I have not yet felt overwhelmed enough or stressed out to the point that it overshadows all the good that the company has to give. I feel very fortunate to be part of this company.
What I dislike about the company
nothing. absolutely nothing.
