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.
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.
Owner tells employees to do something, then he changes his mind and denies that he made the original request. Very confusing and frustrating.
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.
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.
Great co-workers for most part. Ownership regularly berates employees in front of other employees during meetings, and with unprofessional emails.
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.
Ownership is a poor reflection of the company’s image.
Ownership is very negative, paranoid and temperamental. Owner physically destroyed company property during one temper-tantrum.
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.
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.
