This would depend on individual departments. In my experience, the answer to the last question is "no."
Support from management
Employees are not involved in the decision making process, particularly when they have made an error, and may or may not have taken responsibility. It is also absolutely unacceptable for leaders to act in a manner that is degrading or belittling. It is also unfair that your honest opinion and/or side of the story is not important enough to be heard by neutral parties. Information and the truth can very easily become distorted. These types of situations could be life altering for some. Leaders should strive to gain respect, not be disrespectful, inconsiderate of one's time or opinion. Decisions must be made for the best interests of all involved, not just the "company." For it is "all" that makes and fulfills the company.
There is generally a fairly strong sense of team work with Highland, and safety is an extreme priority.
Freedom to work independently
The workload was not generally unrealistic and was manageable for the most part, with the exception of being short staffed at times, which was usually due to a high turnover rate.
There is room to move; however the grass may not always be greener.
Overall compensation for your work
Salary was satisfactory and paid on time, but wage increases were slim and rare. The health insurance was affordable more so for a single person, definitely not a family.
Vacation days can be taken, if there are any to be taken. The first year of employment only provides less than 4 hours per month for time off. This includes being sick.
As the company becomes larger and larger, the image continues to change to more of a corporate feel, versus a warm and supportive sense.
Yes, with the exception of parking.
