Company Culture

The culture is be born into it or forget being nothing more than a mindless drone. Which I’m ok with to a point but the family that makes the calls is no where in site . And when stuff is arriving damaged you should stay hush about it.

Support from management

This is where all the issues are seeded. Who is the boss and why does the boss have a boss if their boss tells you something else.

Ask for help and you get made to feel stupid.

Teamwork

Guys work great with no problems until the chiefs come knocking

Freedom to work independently

You really have to just figure it out on your own anyway

Internal Communication

You get told what a box is from China and to put A with B then another person says no put a in B, then first comes back and says to listen to them the other who is a boss also is stupid. You say wvr and then go about your day. They love throwing money away . I wish we could have caught some of it.

Work-Life Balance

I felt like I had plenty free time between no training, sweating and being moved around while they had person after person in and out and not ask why they don’t like working here.

What I like about the company

Nice place to show friends and family. Looks like Google kind of neat

What I dislike about the company

Lack of training and proper management structure. Zero room for outsiders

Company Culture

We tryed do things together as a company but it just never seemed to workout the way we wanted it to.

Support from management

Management didn't want the hear from the guys doing the work on ways to make things better

Teamwork

Service worked well as a team on projects production did its own thing and service paid the price

Freedom to work independently

I did what I was asked to do and nothing more.

Internal Communication

Emails and very little face to face communication, everyone was on a different page.

Gender Equality

Everyone was treated different, you were liked and got to pick the jobs you wanted to do or you were not liked and were told what jobs you were going to do.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I was very well respected by my fellow service techs just not by management. The techs knew what all I did for the company management only knew what they were told.

Career Development

I didn't have much of a developing career, I did the same job for the day I started to the day I was let go.

Overall compensation for your work

The pay was about middle of the road for the industry and so was the Perdium for working out of town. But if you worked all day you could make enough to live on.

Office / Work Environment

We had a new building and newer trucks good equiptment and bought whatever we needed

Environmental Friendliness

The company had it head in the sand only concerned with what was going on in the digital sign world.

Work-Life Balance

Over worked and under appreciated

Company Image

Good not great but one of the better products in the industry.

Job Security

I was with the company for almost ten years and then one day a new guy came in and let me go. No one stood up for me in management, if that tells you anything.

Handicapped Accessibility

There are ramps but no one was disabled that works there

Workplace Safety

Safety matters just not as much as I would have liked it to.

Challenging Work

The work was not easy and the days were long but when the job was done you were proud of what you accomplished

Inclusive / Diverse

All of the service techs were white. But there was some diversity in other departments in the company

Suggestions for improvement

  • Work together as a team not as individuals trying to get to the top of the mountain any way that they can.

What I like about the company

I like the guys that I worked with.

What I dislike about the company

I don't the fact that I was let go by a guy that had been there only a month.
