Couldn't pay me to go back.
There is no culture.
Support from management
The leadership constantly blamed the support staff for any error whatsoever. There was no leadership support and the owner consistently belittles employees.
Teamwork among the support staff was very good despite the fact that the support staff is constantly pitted against each other. There is absolutely no teamwork between the Doctor (owner) and support staff.
Freedom to work independently
There is zero freedom within this work place. Employees are made to record every task completed throughout the day, the amount of time the task took, and the tasks they want to achieve the next day. While I believe this can be beneficial, the manner in which it was done was insulting and distrusting.
The owner does not know how to communicate effectively and only belittles her employees.
Women have more of an advantage as the owner did not have any male employees while I worked there.
There is no room for career development aside from learning your initial task hired for.
Overall compensation for your work
Under compensated and EXTREMELY overworked.
Office / Work Environment
Employees are constantly made to work overtime without being paid for it. Despite the fact that CA mandates all employees have 3 paid sick days, we received 0. Lunch breaks were often worked through due to pressure of the owner without any compensation. If you task was not done at the end of the day, you were required to stay to complete it without compensation. When you arrived at work you were deemed "on the clock" despite being early and not being compensated for it.
Unfortunately the owner has no social awareness as she is belittling in front of clients and has questionable reprimanding with special needs students.
The owner does not have any work-life balance (company ran out of her house) and expects employees to have the same mindset.
Very poor image. Employees have zero respect for the owner due to the manner in which she treats all individuals.
There is no job security. I watched the owner deviously eliminate an employee over the course of 3 months all while demanding more of the employee.
There is no disability access.
There is no training whatsoever, especially that of safety (we were required to walk around barefoot).
The tasks themselves were not extremely challenging; however, did provide for new skills to be learned.
Inclusive / Diverse
The owner made several degrading and racist comments to individuals not of Caucasian decent.
Suggestions for improvement
- Other than a new owner, I am not sure there are suggestions for improvement.
What I like about the company
What I dislike about the company
There are several things, but I will keep it brief. The owner is the most belittling and degrading person I have met. She has no appreciation for anything anyone does. I would never recommend this as a place of employment.
