Excessive favoritism is an on-going problem in this company. Employee morale is considerably low. Wages are inconsistent with experience level, example: one individual may be an "Assembler 1" for 5+ years, while another can be an "Assembler 2 or 3" after only a few years, with less experience within the industry. Males tend to see a better hourly wage than females, this has been voiced several times with several individuals.
Support from management
Depending on work area/demand, work load can be unreasonable at times, demanding a rush on critical tasks...opening possibility of errors, due to rushed work. If errors occur, blame falls solely on employees with errors, and no corrective action occurs towards the idea of creating a rush on the critical job or the individuals responsible for rushing.
Freedom to work independently
Occasionally, some employee feedback will be heard at times. The management displays the overall appearance that there is a lack of concern of the struggle with unreasonably timed tasks and the errors resulting from this. Several attempts have been made to communicate this repetitive issue with no resolution.
As explained above in "Company Culture", males tend to see a much better hourly pay than females and the "company ladder" is more accessible for men versus women.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Very little appreciation or value is being shown towards long term employees with the higher experience level. Disregard has been displayed towards long term employees resulting in several early retirements, and resignations. New hires have replaced long term employees resulting not enough trained individuals per area and more incidents/errors per process.
Inconsistent. Criteria for professional growth can differ per individual.
Overall compensation for your work
Hazards are not compensated at all, and pay raises are very low-at 1%-2%. Dangerous materials are handled, yet pay matches that of some retail jobs and fast food jobs.
Office / Work Environment
Out of date equipment, some of which dates back over 30 years. Serious ergo risks due to this problem.
Typically this employer shows very little signs of concern with difficulty working overtime and the effects this may have towards the employees family.
Very proud company of the products they supply.
Several lay offs have already taken place, and worst of all, several long term employees were on this list as well.
Not very handicap-freindly.
In depth training is needed. Several employees cannot explain exactly why they have certain standards for safety, they simply do as they are instructed by the Env.Health & Safety Team, there is a lack of understanding the reason behind safety standards, which is vital in ensuring an accident-free workplace.
Suggestions for improvement
- Zero tolerance for favoritism and harrassment within the company should be enforced, this should include upper management.
What I like about the company
