The company has a great concept regarding what they think the culture is - A happy, respectful community with an emphasis on teamwork. It is not the case.
Support from management
Clear communication is lacking and goals are not set. Employees give input, but it is ignored.
Everyone strips beds, flips event spaces, and busses tables regardless of their position and workload. When help is needed elsewhere, it is difficult to come by.
Freedom to work independently
Sometimes a little too independently. Tasks are delegated whether or not the individual is qualified to take them on.
We were always made aware of important company information. Department information was not always properly distributed.
Everyone got the job they interviewed for as long as they were professionally qualified.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Some of the older employees were the most loved employees.
Advancement goals were discussed, but then openings weren't shared. Only people in management positions were given opportunities to develop. Classes were required.
Overall compensation for your work
Only 3 PTO days in first year. One day added per year. Medical benes affordable for one person, but not for a family. No paid maternity leave. Though money was competitive in the area, financial compensation wouldn't be enough to live on at full-time status. Compensation isn't enough for the responsibilities placed on the shoulders of the employees.
Office / Work Environment
People were hired with no plan for proper work space. People bounced from office to office not knowing where they would end up next. Others were forced to work in insufficient spaces. The company knew they'd be expanding, but made no plans to accommodate the needs of the employees, which cultivated hostility.
Lighting was sufficient. Temperature control was handled remotely, so we had to call a different department to resolve issues on the office.
Computers were state-of-the-art, but applications were antiquated or not user-friendly making it difficult to meet the demands of clientele.
The company not only recycles plastic, paper, and glass, but they also recycle soap.
Depending on the position, there is no work-life balance. There was never enough time to get things done, but OT was forbidden.
I was proud to be hired to work there. After things seen and heard, I chose to leave. It was not the company I was lead to believe it was.
Nobody is safe there. The employer takes "at will" seriously. Employees were fired without warning or reason.
For the most part, compliance is observed. Not once was there a fire drill or instruction as to what emergency evacuation procedures were. There were times too many people were crammed into event spaces to accommodate clients wants rather than taking care of their safety in the event of a fire.
No comment. It was a challenge.
Inclusive / Diverse
The family creates ideas and those ideas are carried out.
Suggestions for improvement
- Address conflict immediately and put an end to it. Be clear about expectations. Support the team. Accept responsibility.
What I like about the company
Most of the employees were great to work with. We were a family.
What I dislike about the company
When serious conflicts arise, they are not dealt with properly in certain departments.
