Company Culture

The bigger screw ball you are, the more likely you will get a promotion. They do not appreciate true hard workers. You can be let go just because they don't like you, wrong color, too fat, old etc. People with 18+ years of service were let go before young people who had only been with the company for a few months. This was just recently due to a slow down of orders. Get rid of old people and bring in younger ones. Not a good culture.

Support from management

Where to start. A good leader should lead by example. The president sits in his office all day with no interaction. The VP of Operations is arrogant and only loves himself. He could care less about the company. HR- Whatever the president and VP of Operations wants is what goes. It is very unprofessional.

Teamwork

No management cohesiveness. The current management does not work well with each other. They talk about each other behind their backs. Very unprofessional.

Freedom to work independently

They are going to do what they want and that is all that matters.

Internal Communication

Management talks out both sides of their mouth. Vary rarely do what they say they are going to do.

Gender Equality

Unfair practices. Especially for minorities or if not part of the Boys Club.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Unfair treatment. Get rid of older employees and keep younger ones when things slow down.

Career Development

Not much.

Office / Work Environment

Not too bad. It's a Foundry-what do you expect. No Hollywood.

Environmental Friendliness

Totally not socially aware.

Work-Life Balance

Only when things are extremely slow, like now. Otherwise, depends on who you are.

Company Image

Fake management. Smile to your face but not follow through on anything.

Job Security

If your male, young, play golf & run triathlons, you are golden. Otherwise, be cautious. Be very cautious.

Handicapped Accessibility

Management doors, especially President and HR are always shut.

Workplace Safety

It's suppose to be number one but violations from some get no recourse.

Challenging Work

No room for growth.

Inclusive / Diverse

Non inclusive. Biased treatment for employees depending on who you are.

What I like about the company

Was once a great place to work.

What I dislike about the company

Current management has ruined the culture and livelihood for many people. Poor morale as management has displaced many good people and kept the ones who golf, run triathlons, or kiss butt. Mistreatment of minorities.
