Support from management
Leadership at this company claimed to take into account employee opinions and suggestions, but most of the time feedback was pushed to the side.
Freedom to work independently
Depends on the positions, but overall, if you don't follow instructions to a T, even if communication was bad, a reprimand is likely.
Less than 1% of the company is female. Resumes from qualified women aren't even considered unless they're applying for office assistant work.Women aren't given much opportunity to advance internally and are generally paid less than their male counterparts.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Senior workers are usually upper management. Age is taken into account with field and warehouse positions as a possible disqualification. People close to retirement age are normally not considered for positions unless they have been with the company for years.
Hard workers in the field may be rewarded with opportunity for advancement.
Overall compensation for your work
Wages are around industry average, but you can definitely find higher paying jobs elsewhere. Benefits are offered - vision, dental, health, 401(k) - but are expensive. Workers are told that they are building something that will be around for decades and they should feel a sense of accomplishment for doing something magnificent when they ask for more pay.
Not particularly. Large amounts of waste are produced, however, they are part of a recycling program.
Vacation days can be taken almost any time. Working hours are generally on a normal day schedule, however it isn't uncommon for long shifts or to be moved temporarily to the other side of the state for far away job sites. Family emergencies are treated well as are needed appointments - within reason.
There's a lot of complaining about the company both internally and externally.
There is a high employee turnover. Layoffs are regular during slow months for field and warehouse positions. Some office staff was laid off due to not enough work to go around while new people were hired at the same time.
Disabilities are not offered much in the way of accessibility and may be eventually a reason for termination.
Inspections are conducted regularly with the expectation that they will stay
Inclusive / Diverse
No, unless higher management. Even their opinions may be ignored in the case that the department head disapproves.
Suggestions for improvement
- Be more fair.
What I like about the company
Individual employees are fun to work with, teams usually stick together. Two family events are offered each year with a great turnout and are a lot of fun.
What I dislike about the company
Discrimination is rampant, yet upper level management insists that it's all fair. People were written up for infractions without any proof and told that evidence to the contrary wasn't good enough to go against the word of one person. Opportunities to advance are few and far between. Job training was normally based on what you could teach yourself.
