No management backing because the managers are covering their own backs so they don't get fired.

Teamwork

Blames others to protect his golden children.

Gender Equality

Talks bad about female employees and foreigners.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Only looking for cheap labor. College grads and foreigners. Trying to save money by cutting older colleagues.

Career Development

Budget is always cut.

Overall compensation for your work

Below cost of living raises.

Work-Life Balance

24x7 no matter what.

Company Image

Not the best image in the community.

Job Security

None

Workplace Safety

Near police station.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Care about your employees.

What I like about the company

I'm close to retirement and should be able to retire with some retirement.

The negative image of the company.
