Typical corporate culture.
Support from management
Management is bound by a corporate template of black and white" measurements. Management training, there is none, nor guidance from upper tiers. 8 had one e decent manager held back by red tape. The other was too busy driving and surfing "adult content" on his work computer and taking extended drinking lunches. The other had no clue as to their job and English was not a primary language.
Seeing as 85% of the workforce is remote, this is almost a non-issue. The ones located on site were spread out on 2 floors. In three years, there was never a team building exercise, unless you count going to a bar on company time.
Freedom to work independently
This was the one aspect that was fairly positive. The job layout was straight forward.
Women seemed to have received equal treatment as men.
Attitude towards older colleagues
There were some older employees, not sure there were many over 55,that I saw at least. Majority of the workforce were recent college graduates with little to no workforce experience.
Employees are given goals but are not properly guided and the lack of follow-up is non-existent. My last year of employment I had two 1 on 1 meetings with my manager.
Overall compensation for your work
Wages are decent. When 8 accepted their job offer, the starting pay was a little low but the promise of "handsome raises" steered me to accept. The raises were around 3%. They did offer performance incentives but solely based on goals that were rarely met and too many outside variables beyond the employees control.
Office / Work Environment
There were plenty of work computers that were good enough to run a dummy terminal and instant messenger. The lighting got to my eyes, and did address the issue a few times, and was told to sit away from the light. That's not easy when it's a standard fluorescent ceiling lighting setup.
At the time, they were open 7a-9p and may have been different on weekends and holidays.
At the time of my departure there were many employees filing complaints.
I was hired with bragging rights of "we've never laid anyone off". Three years and company merger later they over hired. Instead of keeping the long term employees, they kept new hires in other states making 1/3 the pay and laid off longer term employees
Im sure they did but I never saw one handicapped employee in the three years I worked there. Every day of my employment was on site.
I don't recall seeing anything unsafe.
At first, I felt I was working for a company with a sense of mission until I found it to be a serious misrepresentation of data. I'm sure there is some sort of legal sidestep.
Inclusive / Diverse
They're a corporation, of course they'll promote diversity.
What I like about the company
Their mission statement reads good on paper which is what drew me out of the Healthcare industry when I relocated to Seattle.
What I dislike about the company
It's too liberal and a very hypocritical place to be. While they claim to help with tobacco cessation, the real goal is padding numbers as their success is great...on paper.
