Company Culture

Little trust and nothing in the way of rewards.

Support from management

Management is always second guessing employee decissions. They are more worried about perception of the here and now than figuring out long term customer loyalty.

Teamwork

Employees try to work as a team but are often rebuked by management for doing so.

Freedom to work independently

There is no ability for employees to make their own decisions.

Internal Communication

Few company meetings. There are department meetings to solve current issues. These usually end up as finger pointing sessions.

Gender Equality

Few women. None in management positions.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I was older when hired. But very few others were out of their 30s.

Career Development

Don't expect to move up.

Overall compensation for your work

Salaries are paid when they are expected. Few other benefits.

Office / Work Environment

Reasonably up-to-date equipment. The work space are very noisy.

Environmental Friendliness

It wasn't stressed. I didn't see anything overly alarming either.

Work-Life Balance

Employees are expected to be there. Non-Exempt employees don't get vacation. Or paid holidays.

Company Image

This is a company that has little real reason to exsist. It repackages another companies product and adds very little value for the customer. Most of the employees I talked with while working there, were there because it was a job not because they liked it.

Job Security

If they like you you can stay. If not you will be asked to leave even if you do your job well.

Handicapped Accessibility

The main building is on a single floor. No ramps or elevators needed. However, on the production floor, it would be hard to get an wheelchair between systems.

Workplace Safety

No safety training was offered. Things looked reasonably safe.

Challenging Work

There were generally new challenges, but unless you were one of the engineers, input was not wanted.

Inclusive / Diverse

The management was not diverse. The worker bee a little. But they had no chance of moving up.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make benefits more equal. Make employees feel valued. Offer things like 401(k)s.

What I like about the company

I can't say there was much I liked about the company. I dreaded going to work most days.

What I dislike about the company

I felt I was constantly being micro managed. There was a big divide between Exempt and Non-Exempt empoyees. (Exempt got paid vacation and time off to visit their home land. Non-Exempt did not as an example.)
