Suggestions for improvement

  • Work on some better retirement insurance packages. I have 25 years within East Penn I know as you get older your concerned about your health and the concerns accompanied with retirement health benefits There should be more communication believe employees and the company's upper cabinet , also direct communication s with health care providers to come to an overall selective election of benefits which is chosen by the employee's needs. Not choosen by some 25 year old mit statisics graduates. Healthcare that is good for one individual may not be the answer for another. I recently resigned from Deka due to injury . When my cobra papers came in mail I realized 550 dollars per week is unsubstainable for me, my wife and my 2 young children most importantly the company that's been paying for the 89 percent premium. It an automatic small business killer.

What I like about the company

Rock solid company! As they grow and chip away at the world's markets. So does the investment into the company's most valuable asset:. It's workforce!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Have the higher ups come out and actually witness what goes on during each shift or even have someone go under cover to see how employees act and are treated by supervisors. They have quarterly updates about the company which is nice, but how positive theCEOs are about how much we are a team,is not reflected in the way we are treated by supervisors. There is no positive reinforcement what so ever.

What I like about the company

They pay is pretty nice without a degree.

What I dislike about the company

It is difficult to move up within the company unless you have a degree. The work is very repetitive and dull. If you're looking for anything remotely challenging, this is not the place for you.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to make long term employees feel like they accomplished something. A little higher raise than someone there 3 years, a little higher bonus for the amount of years there. Something to make people want to stay. I think the turn around rate would be lower. Being a long term employee and asked why I stay. It's insurance & that's pretty much it. Everything else someone off the street can get in 90 days

What I like about the company

Good company with excellent insurance.

What I dislike about the company

I am a long term employee. I highly disapprove of the benefits I get for being committed to the company for over 20 years. A person out of high school can start at the wages with the same benefits that I currently have. It is a disgrace to me, but I stay because the insurance is good. No benefits in being a long term employee so the turn around rate of employment is high.
