Company Culture

Depending on who you are working with/for depends on whether or not you can trust the person, if they are fair or not, and whether you are given praise for your work.

Support from management

My supervisor was unable to make a decision on her own and was not open to new ideas.

Teamwork

The company as a whole would rather work against each other than with each other even though they were all working toward the same goals.

Freedom to work independently

You are either given an unreasonable amount of work to get done in a short amount of time or you are not given anything to do.

Internal Communication

ZERO communication

Attitude towards older colleagues

Depending on your supervisor is depends on how much appreciation you are shown.

Overall compensation for your work

Wages do not match the responsibilities but are always paid on time. Benefits are offered.

Office / Work Environment

The buildings are nice, they technology is dated.

Work-Life Balance

Vacation time can be taken any time as long as you give enough notice. You work holidays and are always asked to pick up shifts when someone calls off. The company is more worried about the almighty buck than the employee and their families.

Company Image

Most employees have more negative opinions of the company than positive.

Challenging Work

I was always proud of what I accomplished.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay your employees based on their skills not based on trying not to hurt someone's feelings. Give credit where credit is due. Please allow yourself to grow with the times and not be stuck in your old school ways.

What I like about the company

The friendships I made with some of my coworkers. Depending on your manager/supervisor there may be flexibility in your schedule.

What I dislike about the company

They don't pay enough for all of the responsibilities they expect you to take on. No one ever says good job or what a great idea. If you want to get promoted you should plan on waiting 10 years from the day they tell you that you are getting a promotion because they are all about the hurry up and wait.

Workplace Safety

Lots of oportunities for unstructured learning. Job skills will not necessarily translate to other business environments. A steady paycheck, good if you just want a run of the mill no frills job, not a place for career ladder climbing.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The vision and direction for the brand needs to be shared by the entire employee base and carried by strong leaders. Vision needs to be something people can get behind other than "make a profit". Encourage employees to learn and bring in expertise in all aspects of the business, when nobody learns anything new since 1983 thats how you get out of touch.

What I like about the company

Lots of opportunites to try different roles, lateral and vertical advancement. You will get to work with some great people and make life long friends.

What I dislike about the company

Disorganized. Tasks that have been completed multiple times over many years will sometimes be handled like they have never been done before.
Extremely out of touch with the outside world and other businesses and industries.
