So focused on process improvement that they are blind to the fact that they are ignoring people improvement.
Support from management
Management doesn't care about the success of their direct reports. They only care about their next promotion. They think meeting with you for 15 minutes every two weeks is managing.
Too many silos. The various development teams don't work together and the devops team lives on a pedestal and doesn't talk to anyone.
Freedom to work independently
You work is 100% driven by the tasks on the Jira board. Nothing else.
There was a major department reorganization and those of us affected didn't even learn about until several days later.
I only saw one case of a woman who worked very hard and was not appreciated for it. She quit.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Saw some arrogance from the younger millennial types.
If you are a manager you can climb the ladder. If you are an individual contributor, good luck. Your manager doesn't care about your career.
Overall compensation for your work
Office / Work Environment
Crowded work spaces, people crammed into small rooms with no personal space, 30+ year old furniture, not enough parking.
Question is unclear.
Not bad. You can get time off when you need it.
Bad reputation for employee retention.
You never know if your performance is acceptable or not.
Only one elevator which was often out of order.
Didn't work on the manufacturing floor so can't say. Never heard of any major accidents.
Challenging but no training. You better be an expert when you walk in the door.
Inclusive / Diverse
Suggestions for improvement
- Overhaul the management culture. It's killing the company. Stop focusing on processes and focus on people. Stop patting yourself on the back for all the Kaizen meetings.
What I like about the company
Some good people at the bottom level. These are the people who could make this a great company if they had the support of management.
What I dislike about the company
Indifferent management. Individuals are not appreciated.
