Reviews

Company Culture

The culture, thanks to HR and my co-workers, was great.

Support from management

As an employee, we were pretty much hung-out-to-dry and thrown under the bus anytime the hammer came down upon us with one exception and that was B. Kerslake. He was the only one in management that stood up and shielded us from problems coming from above.

Teamwork

Teamwork among employees was great.

Freedom to work independently

Freedom was non-existent

Internal Communication

The management needed organizational skills as well as communication skills.

Gender Equality

It was about equal in the office area

Attitude towards older colleagues

Great respect for others except for a few that shouldn't have been in the position they were in.

Career Development

There was very little to no encouragement from management that I saw.

Overall compensation for your work

What I found is, when an employee made a mistake in their workrole, instead of correcting them, the management would wait and allow that person to continue to make mistakes until their evaluation came up and then they'd use it against them.

Office / Work Environment

It was great especially when the VP wasn't around.

Work-Life Balance

There was a good balanced promoted by HR but wasn't promoted by the VP of Sales & Marketing and that caused a lot of problems for anyone with children.

Job Security

It was great job security because they were located far away from the population meaning a long commute for most.

Challenging Work

The real challenge was trying to deal with the disorganization, favoritism, and bullying by the VP of Marketing and sales and dealing with his lack of marketing skills while listening to him attempt to lead company marketing efforts.

Inclusive / Diverse

Not much diversity that I saw.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The first thing is, sales dropped every year that the VP of Marketing & Sales was there (Years before I came onboard). If he had been a football coach, he'd been fired a long time ago and, because of his lack of marketing skills, he should have been fired and moved to a sales position where he may be more useful.

What I like about the company

Everything except the disorganization and poor communications from management.

What I dislike about the company

The company had no leaders, only micro-managers who tried to manage areas they had no business managing.
