Company Culture

Company culture has gone downhill in the last 5 years. Employees fear for their jobs and do not enjoy the negative atmosphere

Support from management

CEO had unrealistic expectations of employees

Teamwork

Fellow employees want to help each other.

Freedom to work independently

Workload is completely unfair and bosses like to micromanage.

Internal Communication

Communication is by and large poor.

Gender Equality

The only women managers are those of women-dominated departments. Very few opportunities for women in Sales or Operations management

Attitude towards older colleagues

Some "older" colleagues that are vocal have been encouraged to retire, while others that are "yes men" have been allowed to stay on.

Career Development

There used to be a culture where employees felt they had a path towards nurturing their career. Now, employees don't feel that way.

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation is fair, but with the excess workload, it's not fair. Benefits are OK and salaries are always paid on time.

Office / Work Environment

The manufacturing facilities are a disgrace and the HQ offices are new, but still have trouble managing HVAC.

Environmental Friendliness

Most social initiatives are employee-initiated. Company does very little otherwise.

Work-Life Balance

It was rare to actually enjoy a vacation. Company is very profitable, but understaffed.

Company Image

Several years ago, the company made millions of dollars in investments in the infrastructure and introduced a mission statement. Things were looking up for the company, but it was all talk.

Job Security

No, lots of good people have been trimmed from the company, for no good reason

Handicapped Accessibility

yes

Workplace Safety

If Company is OSHA compliant, it is only barely compliant. Training isn't sufficient. It's mostly done to check a box rather than ensure a safe environment.

Challenging Work

There was much to be done, and when it was complete, it was very satisfying.

Inclusive / Diverse

Diversity is a non-starter here. Only the CEO's opinion matters.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management should act like they care about more than profits

What I like about the company

Profitable company, good co-workers

What I dislike about the company

Management completely disconnected from employees
