They probably place too much emphasis on this, and would rather promote a woman who was not qualified for a position, rather than to find someone outside the company with the qualifications.
One thing the company does well at is making sure that career and professional development happens for all employees, not just the ones at the top.
Most employees actually didn't talk fondly of their company.
It's part of a very stable piece of the energy industry, and jobs are very stable (unless your supervisor is out to get you, or if you don't do a good job).
Suggestions for improvement
- Try to address the lack of trust issues, and then try to work with employees on being more flexible with work times.
What I like about the company
They were very good about trying to promote from within, and trying to facilitate professional and career development.
What I dislike about the company
The culture leadership cultivates is not conducive to autonomy or thinking outside the box, as they are very risk averse. They also were not very flexible when it came to time off, or flexible working arrangements because they also didn't foster a culture of trust (even though the mantra was "trust, but verify"... there was absolutely no trust... and it was a very common complaint). As such, policies and red-tape made work very hard to get accomplished expeditiously. This was also evident from weekly update reports which everyone provided within departments. These were scrutinized way too much for grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc., instead of mainly content. Even though most people working at Kern River were on salary, they were expected to come in at a certain time and leave no later than a certain time, even if they had already worked 40 hours that week.
