Company Culture

HR Director claims "Place people want to work" - LIE. How can you work in an environment where there is little to no communication? And then - "we fired the CEO, but the new CEO is wonderful!"

Support from management

IF I could rate zero,I would. Some managers try, but then they get demoted.

Teamwork

Depends which team you work on. So many great friendships are made, but Senior Leadership, especially the Director of HR can not be trusted. Confidentiality is not sacred here.

Freedom to work independently

In my role, my immediate boss was up my you know what. Even though I was getting 2-people's jobs, it just didn't matter.

Internal Communication

Horrible. Not some of the Leader's false, just poor management decisions.

Gender Equality

I did see where men made more money than women in the same role.

Attitude towards older colleagues

For production there were circumstances where the older generation were run out of the place if they didn't have a key job.

Career Development

GEAR Up is a sham. They claim they want to develop you but then give you glorified internet-stolen classes.

Work-Life Balance

Depends on the job and Leader. Lots of overtime but more than anyone wants. And they spring it on you quick and repercussions if you cannot work it. From the office perspective - you can choose not to work from home on weekends, but when you do a job and a half, you have to just to be able to be recognized.

Company Image

Pay a lot for the Marketing Director and she just walked around a lot.

Job Security

Elimination of positions but in reality it was those who spoke up.

Challenging Work

Could be if management knew what they were doing.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Clear out upper management leadership.

What I like about the company

The product (some design are out of control) and the actual employees working on the floor. These people make and really are the backbones of the company. Sad when they leave because of management issues (not theirs).

What I dislike about the company

Upper management, ownership being blind to this. They did replace the CEO, probably a little too late. Many good Leaders but receive no credit.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better leadership. There was a lack of communication on the vision and execution of strategic growth. They bait and switch for new hires. Also, they promise compensation packages they can't deliver.

What I like about the company

The insurance benefits.

What I dislike about the company

The lack of Leadership and communication.
