Company Culture

Do not care about employees

Support from management

Management needs to train staff and give more positive feedback instead of just criticizing

Teamwork

Usually staff try a to help others but there's a lot of drama and backstabbing which management ignores or encourages

Freedom to work independently

Little management support. Unreasonable deadlines Autonomy is a positive but not when proper training is not implemented.

Internal Communication

Management just gets angry when you make a mistake but doesn't give examples of what you did wrong so you end up very confused as to how to improve

Gender Equality

Well diversified

Attitude towards older colleagues

Hire mostly young people. Do not encourage positive interaction with older staff. Allow younger staff to bully older staff members.

Career Development

Nonel

Overall compensation for your work

Determine ALL increases in pay on who they personally like the best not based on how effective you are at your job.

Office / Work Environment

Hostile, abusive, unreasonable. Management encourages backstabbing and tattlers. Very stressful environment.

Environmental Friendliness

They shred documents to ensure privacy but need to stop using so much paper. They are unnecessarilly killing a lot of trees.

Work-Life Balance

They don't really care about your personal life. Forced to work a lot of overtime when it's convenient for them but then suddenly totally cut off ANY overtime and even when short staffed expect you to so your job and someone else's just as effectively.

Company Image

Abusive, hostile, stressful

Job Security

Constantly in fear of being fired. I was there 5 years and never felt my job was secure and I know most others felt the same way.

Handicapped Accessibility

Zero

Workplace Safety

Verbally stressed it but did little to adjust to avoid mishaps. Usually if corporate was coming to visit forewarned everyone and cleaned up then.

Challenging Work

Too challenging. Need more training and realistic deadlines.

Inclusive / Diverse

Never ask for your opinion and if you give suggestions even if they are positive they either ignore them and insult your intelligence Or implement them and take the credit.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Training your staff, giving positive reinforcement and reasonable deadlines. Stop all the drama amongst office staff. Eliminate fear techniques in an attempt to motivate employees. All it does is make them angry and stifle their ability to work effectively. Encourage feedback, not just once a year at review time, but ongoing to see where changes need to occur. Make sure annual reviews of self assessment are personally reviewed with staff instead of just saying "if you're going to get a raise, it'll be on your check". Ridiculous, but thar's what happened last year. Make your GOOD employees feel appreciated. High turnover causes more stress, extra hours for everyone and a very poor work experience.

What I like about the company

Close to home. Short drive.

What I dislike about the company

Everything. Profit is important but employee happiness should also be a consideration. Management does not recognize or care about a job well done or someone going above and beyond. It gets you nowhere.

Company Culture

Very top-down management. There is no collaboration and very little independent thinking allowed.

Support from management

You get no support from the Corporate managers.

Internal Communication

The only time you hear from the Corporate office is when they want something. No response when you need assistance.

Gender Equality

It's a man's world.

Career Development

Very little opportunity for advancement within the organization.

Office / Work Environment

It is very stressful due mainly from lack of communication and changing decisions.

Work-Life Balance

It is all about work. Individuals are even denied vacation time they have available. That's not right.

Job Security

There are executives within the organization who manage through intimidation. They feel it is good to be worried about your job.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would recommend that they begin to really listen to their employees. Get out of the Corporate office and visit the branch locations to really see how things work. Be open for input from the people doing the work.

What I like about the company

I made several good friends while I worked there, most of whom are no longer with the organization.

What I dislike about the company

I always felt like there was a thumb on my head from the Corporate office holding me down. The work always flowed down from above and they were never interested in hearing about ways that things could be improved. Work flow decisions were always made by people who did not do the work and had never done the work.

Inclusive / Diverse

They tell you they are willing to listen to your ideas, but when you tell them, they dismiss them. You never feel like you're part of the team.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get new management in place to revive the company

What I like about the company

There are a few good people that work there, but many of the good people end up leaving.

What I dislike about the company

Very old school and you are never part of the team. Everything "controlled" by CFO, who is a bully with others.
