- Knox Company (Phoenix, AZ / United States)29.May 2018
Overall culture is very discouraging. People like the benefits but no one likes the culture which is management heavy and offers no encouragement, only criticisms.
There is no team mentality here... each is out for him or herself. The word "team" is tossed around freely but not a concept this company understands.
Freedom to work independently
If you can't take the bull by the horns and do what you have to do to survive, you won't. Training is, basically, learn as you go and they only track errors not anything you did right.
Slow and sometimes non-existent. Very much a "need to know" system and sometimes even if you need to know, you are left out.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Knox succeeds because of its founder and his genius and current employees, they really care. The management is often mocked now but people are good at what they do and do it well despite horrible managment
Very little to none.
No one, not one person there ever feels secure for more than a day or two at a time.
Loved the work and working with first responders and co-workers.
Inclusive / Diverse
My dept was heavily Hispanic and the manager was also and she was definitely biased towards those employees. She even allowed them to speak Spanish to each other so other employees would not know what was said.
Suggestions for improvement
- Offer an encouraging environment and good training.
What I like about the company
The work in and of itself is fun and challenging.
What I dislike about the company
