Culture is fake and cheesy. Morning hoopla is stupid and becomes annoying after a while. Praises are often given to employees who work like dogs whether they're paid for it or not. You'll be shunned if you don't attend the yearly kickoff meeting which they don't pay proper mileage or if you don't attend their cheesy company parties with cheap, nasty liquor.
Support from management
No incentives for annual review.
Great people for the most part. Management is messy. Everyone will know your personal business by the end of the day.
Freedom to work independently
Too much work. Too few people. Pay is not fair or market pay. Turnover is high.
The phone system is always going down. Senseless emails are sent out constantly.
I won't say the environment os sexist, but but it but it is male dominated. I don't know of any women salespersons.
Attitude towards older colleagues
The older employees are the ones that were there before the acquistion. They value them more than anyone else in the office. I don't think the business would survive without them.
There There is There is no There is no clear Thereisnoclearcareer path. Training is mostly online modules that you don't have time to complete.
Overall compensation for your work
Wages are low balled and unfair. Benefits Benefits are very poor.
Office / Work Environment
Computer equipment adequate, but there's not enough software licenses for their inventory or engineering systems. Office is a cubicle environment. There is no privacy.
They recycle old parts and sell scrap metal to fund employee appreciation events.
Poor. There is not enough people to handle their workloads.
The company is is not stable. They use a lot of temporary labor. The company is heavily dependant on the oil and gas industry. Don't depend on working here very long.
No real safety program. Near misses are not managed. Ironically, they are aware of their client's safety record.
Great products. Great projects. Not hard to understand.
Inclusive / Diverse
They hire a lot of veterans.
