Support from Management
Employees are almost never involved in any kind of decision-making. Everyone below department lead level is just a task-based cog in a machine. They just want employees who show-up on time, do their job, and stay positive. Communication isn't the best, and leadership insists on always maintaining a facade of positivity, even when a situation is dire. A good place for someone without a college degree and without aspirations for growth. You can gain experience there, but expect to look elsewhere in a few years if you want to grow. They only promote 'yes-men,' types with a narrow personality type. Men seem to get promoted faster. Women are often told they are 'unapproachable,' and have to work twice as hard to get promoted.
The culture is highly toxic. People are constantly anxious and many former employees report PTSD type symptoms after leaving. They drive out the good people and toxic people stick around. The culture has a lot of gossip, and unprofessional, inappropriate confrontations between employees occur with no intervention from managers. Always expect everything you say to be repeated, and any success or special attention from supervisors usually results in jealousy and sabotage from mediocre co-workers who feel entitled to special treatment.
