Company Culture

The company is full of great people who care about their jobs. The culture is declining a bit because it's not as focused on helping people grow successfully in their jobs but I enjoyed working there. One of the reasons I was able to enjoy my job is that I was very proactive about developing my skills and knowledge.

Support from management

The middle managers are nice people.

Internal Communication

Internal communication is still hierarchical. Leaders don't hear what's going on with delivery teams because information gets filtered by a series of managers. There's a weird fear of letting leaders talk to direct contributors. It was hard to work around this but you can make it work. The funny flip side of that is that since senior leaders don't really know the people doing the work, there's a level of anonymity which ca makes the job less stressful than other companies.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Consistency across the board for work life balance. Allow adjustment to work in order to volunteer more so one doesn’t have to make up work when choosing to volunteer.

What I like about the company

Enjoy volunteering opportunities when time permits. There is potential for advancement if one is looking for that.

What I dislike about the company

There is room for improvement-gender gap at executive level. Communication is not always consistent from top down.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Allowing employees to be able to walk up the corporate ladder according to their achievements at work, and rewarding employees for their hard work.

What I like about the company

I like that there are employee events (whether) they are cultural or volunteering at areas that help improve the camaraderie between coworkers and also let you enjoy your time at the company helping you to relieve stress from work. Recently, we had a company outing to a farm where we could bring our significant other and just enjoy pumpkin carving, hay rides, and other fall activities. The outing also taught us to build on teamwork, communication and leadership skills while at the same time being fun.
