Support from management

alot of talk about changes, but no action

Teamwork

definitely something spoken about, but used as a control tool rather than a building tool

Freedom to work independently

micromanaging central

Internal Communication

does not exist

Attitude towards older colleagues

certain people get certain treatment and perks

Career Development

good learning possibilities but in order to advance you have to be at their beckon call 24/7

Overall compensation for your work

under paid even for the national average for my job title

Office / Work Environment

pretty tense....management walks around to make sure you are working on a regular basis....sort of like prison

Work-Life Balance

perception is life here....they would rather you be here doing nothing and be seen after 5 then have your work done and leave

Job Security

you never know

Challenging Work

nothing is ever right

Suggestions for improvement

  • show appreciation, micromanaging does not help anyone, know what you are talking about before you try to show authority

What I like about the company

casual dress

What I dislike about the company

perception more important than work ethic and quality, feels like you are in prison
