What I like about the company

the work environment is good. Our responsibilities are clear and we are allowed to do our jobs without anyone micro-managing. It is a friendly laid back environment.

What I dislike about the company

The industry is hectic, we are either very busy or very slow. There seems to be no in-between. The benefits aren't very good, and there is often calls and issues that need to be handled after hours.

Support from management

Goals set by mgmt, but they lack adequate knowledge and understanding of what is required to accomplish those goals.

Teamwork

You'd think you're living in a school zone with all the buses you're being thrown under.

Freedom to work independently

Work is fairly evenly distributed, but you have little influence over your responsibilities. Massive changes may be made to your department by mgmt that completely change the nature of everyone's responsibilities.

Internal Communication

Huge work needs to be done here in quality, timeliness, and accuracy of communications. It has certainly improved, but it's not where it should be.

Career Development

Definitely NOT a place to establish a career; Get enough skills here to make yourself attractive to other employers, then get out.

Overall compensation for your work

Lousy compensation & awful health plan. Want a raise? You'll have to threaten to quit.

Office / Work Environment

Office space is quite nice, however computer hardware is often underpowered for the applications used.

Environmental Friendliness

Environmental actions to reduce CO2 emissions are passive, when they should be actively pursued.

Work-Life Balance

Expect calls at home when you're trying to sleep. They have made significant accommodations for some individuals' work-life balance though.

Job Security

Unless you go around insulting the company, the drivers, or completely neglect your responsibilities, your job is quite secure.

Workplace Safety

Safety documentation has certainly improved, but can definitely be better.

What I like about the company

It's like working on a jigsaw puzzle every day where all of the pieces came from a different box; There is no right or wrong way to assemble it. All you can do is find the best way you can to do so.

What I dislike about the company

Under-informed, hasty decisions made by leadership resulting in increased work for employees.
