Company Culture

The company does not contribute to a climate of fairness or trust.

Support from management

Supervisors do not have the resources needed to concentrate on the employees.

Teamwork

The facility is production driven and teamwork is not as high a priority as other companies promote.

Freedom to work independently

The orders are given to employees by management and therefore employees do not have control over what they are picking.

Internal Communication

Communication is not given on a regular or consistent basis. Most communication is received by word of mouth.

Gender Equality

Woman are held to a different standard then men.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Long serving employees are not appreciated.

Career Development

There is no career training at the facility for continual growth. Employees are not given the opportunity to develop themselves to be better communicators or supervisory/management material.

Overall compensation for your work

The starting wage is comparable to other companies. They have good benefits.

Office / Work Environment

The facility is clean and well maintained.

Environmental Friendliness

The company is ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certified.

Work-Life Balance

There is no work-life balance. Employees can not make plans ahead of time because of the lack of planning from the management team.

Company Image

The employees do not refer family or friends to work there like they did a few years back.

Job Security

Job security only exits if it benefits the plan of the week. The management team lacks consistency in planning for production and continually changes start times.

Handicapped Accessibility

The facility has a ramp for disabled to use but nothing else.

Workplace Safety

Yes safety training is given and the facility complies with the OSHA standards.

Challenging Work

The employees feel a sense of accomplishment when they are able to produce the numbers required for the day.

Inclusive / Diverse

There is no on boarding process for promoting diversity.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Setting high expectations of the people responsible for managing by requiring higher education degrees (Masters). The individuals in Human Resources will benefit by attending courses delivered by a certified college or university. Understanding people and their emotional intelligence is critical to the success of a company. Monitoring the management style of anyone responsible for the overall performance of employees is highly suggested and I do not recommend one person doing the monitoring.
  • Take the time to building strong bonds with employees. Get to know their working styles and expectations.

What I like about the company

Gates offers good benefits and has a good product that they sell.

What I dislike about the company

The corporate office does not visit the facility on a regular basis to ensure the employees are being treated with fairness and respect. Employees are the backbone of a great company and communication is essential to meet customer demands. Employees do not leave companies, they leave poor bosses.
