Company Culture

The excessive level of micro-management was indicative of the mistrust component of the corporate culture. Information was shared on a "need to know" basis, as knowledge is power.

Support from management

Staff is told "We own you" and continually reminded that it was "not a democracy".

Teamwork

A feeling of animosity and a "we vs they" environment was encouraged and perpetuated. I was reprimanded for being "too much of a team player".

Freedom to work independently

The fact that there were no job descriptions allows management the discretion to force you to complete tasks outside of your area of responsibility.

Internal Communication

The rules continually changed according to the situation. Instability was the name of the game here.

Gender Equality

Women are not given the same opportunities as men, and openly insulted/harassed if they are blonde.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Long-term, knowledgeable employees are not valued or preserved.

Career Development

Opportunities for professional advancement are exclusive.

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation and benefits are adequate.

Office / Work Environment

Staff working areas are continually moved indiscriminately which makes for a very disruptive, chaotic and continually distracting work environment.

Environmental Friendliness

Employees are required to participate in community outreach efforts because of the company ownership's involvement in politics and the church.

Work-Life Balance

PTO, although earned, is regarded as a "gift" and resented if used. It required excessive lead time to schedule and there was no compensation or flex time for additional hours worked.

Company Image

Employees may speak fondly out of fear of retaliation.

Job Security

There is little job security due to the perception of the staff member's likeability and perceived loyalty.

Handicapped Accessibility

There are no disabled staff members or accommodations .

Workplace Safety

Safety is adequate with the exception of a very narrow one-way staircase.

Challenging Work

My expertise in my field afforded me my worth.

Inclusive / Diverse

Diversity is achieved as only required by law. Opinions and ideas are unsupported and viewed as disloyalty and insubordination.

Support from management

There is no support from Senior Management. They are focused on politics and religion and not the company

Teamwork

There is very little cross departmental teamwork. Individual departments operate autonomously and not for the good of the company

Freedom to work independently

You are micro-managed to the point that there is not autonomy

Suggestions for improvement

  • Develop a bit of trust in the employees and allow them to work for the benefit of the company

What I like about the company

Minimal overtime

What I dislike about the company

Most difficult place I have ever worked due to the interaction of senior management with the staff
