Company Culture

It started nice years ago, now everyone is so hurried, worried, and stressed every day

Support from management

None, they just throw you into the project without support.

Teamwork

Same thing with teamwork as communication, was good, now everyone has to worry about their job.

Freedom to work independently

Was able to do this, but I had to field 4 status phone calls f et on my manager every day.

Internal Communication

Communication was ok, support was not

Gender Equality

This was good

Attitude towards older colleagues

They are pushed out, I was one

Career Development

It's all about them

Overall compensation for your work

I was paid decently. Did get small raises - they say money is tight, while at quarterly company meetings, we were told how great the company is doing.

Office / Work Environment

Cubes with low walls, you look eye to eye with your coworker

Environmental Friendliness

Coworkers were friendly

Work-Life Balance

Gotta get project done, regardless of hours it takes

Company Image

Do not really know

Job Security

None whatsoever, I was pushed out as lower wage workers were in the meeting room learning my project.

Handicapped Accessibility

This was great.

Workplace Safety

Fine

Challenging Work

Plenty of work

Inclusive / Diverse

Suggestions for improvement

  • Less overhead, fewer departments. It’s impossible to get one department to do the right thing when asked or told but a VP of another division. Nobody plays well with others and everyone is always on the defensive and nothing ever gets done.

What I like about the company

Like where I work. Best job I have ever had. If we communicated better and listened to the issues rather than worrying if we might hurt someone’s feelings. This could be the greatest company ever!

What I dislike about the company

Lack of management engagement with the workers. To truly understand how workers do there job and to also know how they do there jobs.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would provide better feedback from management and higher to lower level employees to explain how the individual worker's goals and responsibilities help the overall goal of the company.

What I like about the company

The company provides good benefits and is overall a good company to work for.

What I dislike about the company

The way promotions are given out is mainly based on seniority not on actual value to the company. They also have a parking problem that they don't care that they inconvenience hundreds of employees everyday.
