Company Culture

Angry, vengeful, absentee CFO.
Self-promoting COO who complains to employees about how CFO is a whacko and VP always dumps her duties on him.
Very low employee morale.

Support from management

CFO doesn’t support managers and allows employees to go over managers heads to him.

Teamwork

Dictatorship

Freedom to work independently

Dictatorship

Internal Communication

Paranoid CFO monitors ALL emails, IM’S, phone calls, etc. Has cameras throughout the facility to watch employees.

Attitude towards older colleagues

CFO thinks they are coasting.

Career Development

Non-existent

Overall compensation for your work

CFO could easily absorb some minor health care cost but refuses to do so, and passes ALL costs on to low-paid employees; and doesn’t care how it impacts them.

Office / Work Environment

Very low morale. Employees are happier when CFO is not there.

Environmental Friendliness

Jekyll-Hyde CFO...Angry, vengeful and paranoid.

Work-Life Balance

CFO is Unsympathetic

Job Security

Uninformed CFO always thinks employees are not giving him a full days work. CFO pits employees against each other.

Handicapped Accessibility

None

Workplace Safety

Leaking roofs and walls. CFO allows his German Shepherd to roam freely throughout the facility. Dog constantly barks at employees and bit an employee.
Employees have to walk through technicians work area, which is an obstacle course of equipment and power lines, to get to the bathrooms.

Challenging Work

It’s a job

Suggestions for improvement

  • CFO should seek professional help with his personal issues. Needs to take work shops and seminars on how to be professional and treat employees properly.

What I like about the company

Most co-workers are nice

What I dislike about the company

Poor ownership who regularly degrades and embarrasses employees in meetings and also with highly unprofessional emails.

Support from management

Some may disagree with this but anytime I had an issue or needed something the COO or VP would always help me out without question.

Freedom to work independently

All IT work is pretty much independent. You are on your own to get orders done and pushed to the service techs. Management has a few requests here and there but generally do not bother you.

Career Development

There is no advancement for the position I had only a switch in profession which was pushed often on me.

Overall compensation for your work

The pay was "ok" many other jobs will pay much more especially since you are in charge of Server administration, Network administration, Security, DBA, and so on.

Office / Work Environment

IT area is left wide open for anyone to walk up to. Not the most secure especially if dealing with passwords.

Work-Life Balance

Its a normal 8-5 job, in IT, there are rare occasions you will receive calls on weekends or after hours but these are rare.

Company Image

Gentech has great people working for them. It never seemed like work to me when there. I always found a way to enjoy working there even on stressful days.

Job Security

Job security is important for everyone and unfortunately I didn't feel very secure even though I was doing everything that was asked of me. I've seen as much as 3 people in a week get fired. Bad for moral and puts everyone on edge.

Challenging Work

Easy work once you learn the basics and people are always there willing to help you if you ask them.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Work on communication and let employees know if they're doing something you dont like instead of just firing them.

What I like about the company

Gentech was like a family to me, sometimes a little dysfunctional though. Work never seemed like "work" as I was able to goof off here and there and still get everything i needed done plus more.

What I dislike about the company

The owner does put people on edge. He was always ok with me but there have been many times with others that he said to do something one way then gets mad when you do it and says he wants it done another way. The constant flipping of decisions without employees being notified causes a lot of confusion and irritation.
