Company Culture

Intimidating

Support from management

Complaints fall on deaf ears.

Teamwork

Always short staffed

Freedom to work independently

You’re independent alright...too independent. They expect you to do the work of 3 people, even when you ask for help.

Career Development

There’s very little opportunity for advancement

Overall compensation for your work

The pay is terrible

Work-Life Balance

The work just keeps piling up...you can never catch up.

Job Security

During disasters they expect you to drop everything and go work for days at the shelter for no extra pay, even if you have small children or elderly/disabled family members at home. If you refuse, you get fired.

Workplace Safety

There was too much work to catch mistakes. When you’re constantly worried about losing your license, it’s unsafe.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay your employees what the outside sector pays.

What I like about the company

The health, retirement benefits and work hours.

What I dislike about the company

Salary and workload

Overall compensation for your work

Yes

Company Image

Employees and the community are distrustful of them. Upper msnagement are vindictive and only out for their own career advancement. The management style is coercive. They pride themselves on the fact that if you're hired selective service, they can fired you for no reason and you cannot appeal.

Job Security

They are constantly restructuring to suit their whim, to promote someone they like or are related to or to demote someone they don't like. Coworkers file grievances against each other intent on getting someone fired. You get called to HR only to be accused, berated, and made to feel small by the head if HR (a lawyer), your supervisor and anyone else who feels like being nasty that day.

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes

Workplace Safety

Yes

Inclusive / Diverse

No

Suggestions for improvement

  • Remove top management in every department. Clear out the top floor where the general and her minions are.

What I dislike about the company

Management, nepotism, the health officer thinks she is the general or dictator and expect complete obedience from her staff. Too many people trying to distract management from what they are doing by sabotaging others.
