Company Culture

Supervisors rarely commend employees. Employees trust each other, but they do not trust management.

Support from management

Leadership almost does not exist. There are very little systems or processes. Employee's are left to figure out how to do their job. If something goes wrong management does not recognize that it may be from lack of training.

Teamwork

Some employees want to work together, but management does their best to keep that from happening. Management encourages the "every man for himself" mentality.

Freedom to work independently

Employees are left to figure out how to solve issues on their own. If it is done well there is no recognition, if it is not done well management makes sure to tell everyone the mistakes you made, but not what should have been done instead.

Internal Communication

They meet all the time with people. It takes months for a decision to be made. Management is not truthful with employees on matters that effect the employee.

Gender Equality

Women are not given the same treatment or opportunities as the men.

Attitude towards older colleagues

There are very few employees that have worked longer than 2 years. Anyone who looks over 45 is rarely considered for job openings.

Career Development

In the years I worked at IWS, no employee advanced or was trained, unless it was because software was upgraded.

Overall compensation for your work

New employees are hired in at higher wages than employees that are doing the same job and have worked there for over a year. Pay raises are not given often, some people have not had a pay raise in years.

Work-Life Balance

Owners get upset when vacation time is used. They will approve it, but then hold you accountable when the work is behind when you get back, and call you while you are gone to handle issues.

Company Image

Most employees do not like working for IWS, but need the pay check. The company image has suffered over the last few years with customers due to quality of work.

Job Security

Jobs stable if they like you. If they don't like you it doesn't matter if you to a great job, your position will be eliminated.

Handicapped Accessibility

The doe not hire disabled employees.

Workplace Safety

They do not like to have L&I claims, so they try to make it a safe place to work, without much training.

Inclusive / Diverse

Very reluctant to change anything. Diversity is not encouraged.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Recognize employee strengths, all process changes do not have to come from two people only. Make quicker decisions on improvements. Stop speaking badly about employees to other employees. Stop lying to employees and customers.

What I like about the company

Co-workers are fun to work with, and the office hours are such that you only have to work 6 hours on Friday's, which is nice for weekends. The office has a casual work enviroment.

What I dislike about the company

There are very little systems or processes in place. If you have an idea for improvements, or just make improvements, management will not support you or give recognition to those people. Some employees have work 60 or more hours per week for months at a time, and management refuses to find solutions for the work load, and gets upset if work is not done or if time off is requested.
