Company culture

Not good

Support from Management

No management

Career Development

Do not believe in cost of living increase, yearly performance reviews, in essence you need to threaten to quit before you can get a raise. They literally tell employees we don't believe in raises.

Company Image

Terrible industry wide image of company due to parts reputation.

What I dislike about the company

Corporate bully mentality, several issues with pay checks, very little support from management.
