Good Benefits - Poor Structure / BAD Leadership

1.17

Company Culture

poorly treated staff, reward is OT but told mandatory at the last minute - family values/life is not valued

Support from management

Supervisors run by the seat of their pants - no structure for success

Teamwork

told one direction when in turn the opposite is the direction

Internal Communication

strong disconnect in this area - current business philosophy doubt to see this facility last a year

Career Development

know someone not know something and you will do well

Office / Work Environment

equipment breakdowns the norm, no heat for winter, ventilation is far from suitable - summer heat lucky to have a cold drink - very dirty facility inside and out

Work-Life Balance

no consideration here - work as you are told or you will be fired

Job Security

feel threatened every day - very bad moral - yet upper management is blind to see the truth

Handicapped Accessibility

NO - would not give the time of day to this area

Workplace Safety

say safety - but want corners cut to move things out the door - chaos on a daily basis

Challenging Work

challenging only since the jobs taken on are bottom feeder work - profit gains are a weird direction by the leaders

Suggestions for improvement

  • utilize those with the skills in the right positions, get rid of the who you know philosophy, need a revamp from the top to fix the problem - leaders trying to promote a business they have no clue in for success and leaders whose history has been failure but can lead a dog off a cliff and say it is ok because they can talk the talk but have no clue how to walk

What I like about the company

I like the medical coverage - not proud to work for this company - hide/do not tell who I work for since it is so poorly run and thought of lowly by other same industry leaders

What I dislike about the company

Poor leaders, not friendly look down on plant employees, those in management are not held accountable for their own personal errors - instead they pass the blame
