Company Culture

Culture has changed to where well intended employees suffer while those in the "club" prosper.

Support from management

Design teams are handed schedules without ever being included in initial scheduling. Schedules are therefore unrealistic since designers, not managers,know what time and resources it will take to deliver a solid product on time.

Teamwork

Only if teamwork means working with one's specific team members. Lost my job trying to befriend and learn about other teams.

Freedom to work independently

In my last group, trust to gwt the job done was not a problem.

Internal Communication

Company did a reasonable job of sharing results.

Gender Equality

Let's just say that men are concerned when working with women...they are not in agreement with the women, they can and will be terminated.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Not much respect unless that older person is in the "club".

Career Development

Agree. Mentoring and Kaizen events help individual and team growth.

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation was fair.

Office / Work Environment

Office environment was top notch. Just do not communicate with other teams unless you have specific work task to do.

Environmental Friendliness

Recycling bins and walking trails...good stuff. If I were still employed there I was planning to ask to adapt a highway, they need to do that.

Work-Life Balance

Balance was decent, also worth noting that they have a reasonably sized workout area with equipment and showers.

Company Image

I really enjoyed working there until one of the fire happy supervisors in another group threw me under the bus for a wrong assumption. My fate was decided by a biased committee who oddly did not call on any of my peers or take into account my social fluidity and involvement in many company benevolence activities. Did not even consider asking me about my social interactions. But I was not in the "club" so my fate was sealed. A Salem witch trial of sorts.

Job Security

Did I mention I lost my job for cross pollenization? By the way, I am also disabled. Policies no longer make sense.

Handicapped Accessibility

Handicapped parking and automated doors helped in this regard. An elevator is also available.

Workplace Safety

Being also a first responder there, I felt that the company did a great job to consider accident prevention and also having people trained in case of an accident.

Challenging Work

Working to be leading edge. Just too slow and product direction is for the now with it much adaptation for future needs.

Inclusive / Diverse

From a race perspective yes....unless you are a middle age caucasian.male, then you are expensive. Only ideas that agree with the "club" seem to be supported.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Don't fire highly social people for cross pollenization

What I like about the company

Office areas were well established. Free soda and coffee. Workout facility that was accessible from 6 AM to 9 PM.

What I dislike about the company

Policy by committee, abusive with the "at will" employment law in Indiana.
