Support from management
Whenever there's about to be the slightest change in the companies teams, management never gets the opinions of their employees.
I've asked many, many times for more training for the han veto advance myself, but after 4 years, it still has not happened
Overall compensation for your work
Benefits are good. Salary and raises are terrible. Told 2 different managers a raise in salary would help. At first I was told they will get back to me in 2 days. It's close to 3 months and still no raise. Managers seem to put off raises unless you give out in your notice
Office / Work Environment
There are always things improperly working. After many times requests go in for them to get fixed, employees give up because they don't get done.
When you get hired, they don't tell you that you need to work weekends occasionally. Then the manager throws it at you after being there for a while expecting you to know.
The only days they give you off are Christmas, thanksgiving and New Year's Day. Memorial Day and Labor Day they expect you to be there, as well as Christmas Eve until 3:00/3:30
From what I hear, pay for jury duty, comes out of your sick/vacation time which I didn't even know was legal
Management promises the world which is a large fabrication. About half or more employees speak negatively about the company
Inclusive / Diverse
Management will always listen to your opinions but very rarely goes into action
Suggestions for improvement
- Be straight forward with your employees.
- Do not sugar coat anything
- Don't lie
- Do NOT tell employees they can have a raise and either not give it to them or forget about them
What I like about the company
It's close to my residence
What I dislike about the company
Management constantly lie, management are really good at telling you what you want to hear at that moment, they have a tendency of hiring individuals that are not qualified and expect their existing employees to train new hires, company is unreliable when it comes to fixing major equipment, management recieve their bonus's but the only appreciation they give is an inexpensive lunch near Christmas or sometimes if you hit numbers at the end of the month
