Company Culture

Owner is a dictator with a bad temper. Very low morale.

Support from management

None. Employees know that they do not have to listen to their managers and that they can go to the owner and invent stories about managers and the owner will always believe it because he never gets all the facts or both sides of the story.

Teamwork

Owner talks about teamwork but employees know that it does not exist.

Freedom to work independently

Owner is gone for months at a time to his house in FL.

Internal Communication

Owner tells employees to do something, then he changes his mind and denies that he made the original request. Very confusing and frustrating.

Gender Equality

There is a lot of good old boy mentality.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Ownership doesn’t feel they put in a full days work and that they are just coasting.

Career Development

None

Overall compensation for your work

Every employee has their “own deal” with owner. No consistency. Different pay, hours, vacation time. It’s the Wild West.

Office / Work Environment

Electrical issues, leaking roof and walls. Sewer issues. The owner got enraged when the sewer line clogged and he had to pay a plumber to unclog it. He threatened that he was going to lock the bathrooms and make employees go to local businesses to use their bathrooms.

Environmental Friendliness

Great co-workers for most part. Ownership regularly berates employees in front of other employees during meetings, and with unprofessional emails.

Work-Life Balance

Owner is very paranoid and believes that employees never put in full days work. He feels that they are always trying to take advantage of him.

Company Image

Ownership is a poor reflection of the company’s image.

Job Security

Ownership is very negative, paranoid and temperamental. Owner physically destroyed company property during one temper-tantrum.

Handicapped Accessibility

None

Workplace Safety

Electrical issues. Leaking roof and walls. Owner allows his German Shepherd to run freely throughout the facility. Dog is always barking at employees and bit one employee.

Challenging Work

The challenge is that ownership instructs you to do something and then they change their mind and deny that they made the original decision.

Inclusive / Diverse

I do not dare to mention many of the very disparaging comments that employees hear on a daily basis.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Ownership needs to improve professionalism communication skills.

What I like about the company

Good co-workers

What I dislike about the company

Very disappointing and unprofessional ownership.

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.
