Company Culture

Absentee owner is verbally abusive and highly unprofessional. A dark cloud hangs overhead whenever owner is actually in the building. Owner is away for months at at time, yet still regularly belittles employees through highly toxic emails and teleconferences.

Support from management

Zero. Owner does not support managers and employees know that they do not have to listen to their managers. Employees regularly bi-pass managers and go to owner.

Teamwork

Dictatorship. All employees know they could be fired at a moments notice if the owner gets angry at them for any reason that he invents in his mind. Extremely low moral.

Freedom to work independently

Good unless the owner assumes that you are not giving 100%, which usually means that the end is near.

Internal Communication

Horrible. Inconsistent and very confusing communication and ever-changing policies and procedures. Employees and Managers do not want to make any decisions for fear of the owners wrath. Owner has gone on anger-filled tirades that included the destruction of company property.

Gender Equality

Non-existent, except for VP of Operations who is his wife.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Owner regularly complains to other employees that older employees are in retirement mode and not working hard enough or the company.

Career Development

None

Overall compensation for your work

Decent pay

Office / Work Environment

Extremely low moral.

Environmental Friendliness

Co-workers are friendly, but there is no trust between employees because owner promotes a "spy atmosphere" to keep him informed of bad employees.

Work-Life Balance

Owner demands loyalty and a "company first" commitment.

Company Image

Unprofessional. The company held a live drawing for an equipment giveaway. Owner looked disheveled, unshaven, wore dirty clothes and used hand-written boxes that looked completely unprofessional. Owner did not project a professional image as the face of the company. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynQMCjbckjs

Job Security

None. You can go from hero to zero in an instant.

Handicapped Accessibility

None

Workplace Safety

Widespread OSHA violations from open chemicals, electrical cords in isles, water puddles on the office and shop floors, leaking roofs with water dripping on the floors, employees working in parts of facility that owner refuses to heat during the Winter, etc. When the sewer line clogged, the owner emailed all employees, threatening to cut off access to the bathrooms and make employees go to surrounding businesses to use their bathrooms. Owner allows his German Sheppard to roam freely throughout the building, barking at employees. Dog bit one employee in the hand.

Challenging Work

Mundane, manual work. No integrated systems. All departments are on individual systems which means that employees have to email or physically do to other departments to get work-related information, which slows workflow. It's almost like going back in time.

Inclusive / Diverse

Will not hire African-Americans.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Suggestions do not work in a dictatorship.

What I like about the company

Decent pay.

What I dislike about the company

Horrible ownership.
