Company Culture

There is no fairness or trust on any level. No one is ever commended. Hard work is actually discouraged. We've literally been told not to do work just to do work.

Support from management

Doesn't matter if you come in and do nothing all day. As long as you show up you have a job. No expectations from workers what so ever aside of showing up. Conflict is avoided at all costs. The only thing that an employee does that will be challenged in any way is if they have bad attendance. This is great for slackers but a shame to hard workers that care and want to make a future out of this company. Slackers are the future of this company that will eventually lead to its demise.

Teamwork

There are clicks that work well together and as a team. Others do not.

Freedom to work independently

Work load is so lopsided that it is unbelievable. one shift is expected to do all of the work while the other 2 shifts slack. However, the shift that does all of the work has been told to slow down. Aparrently it isn't important to get customers their orders on time.

Internal Communication

There is absolutely no communication. This is a huge issue. If you communicate it is frowned upon. You are considered to be starting conflict and as I said conflict is avoided at all cost.

Gender Equality

Woman are given positions of opportunity but put in lessor roles so they can be over ridden by the men. Woman are not appreciated. Their ideas are not appreciated and if they try to push their ideas they are quickly put in their place.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Anyone can be hired for production because performance is not required. They just need to show up.

Career Development

There is absolutely no room for advancement in this company at all.

Overall compensation for your work

Standard Benefits are offered. We are always paid on time. Salaries vary greatly even within the same department. Some are paid fairly and others are not.

Office / Work Environment

I can say that conditions of the inside of the facility have improved. You really can't skimp on safety. Although, the parking lot is not properly cared for in winter. Some day this will hopefully be taken care of.

Environmental Friendliness

Some are socially aware and some aren't. The people that are aware are not in a position to make a difference.

Work-Life Balance

MicroGroup has PTO. It is for vacation, personal, and sick use. If you run out of it you are not allowed time off at all without putting your job in jeopardy. Family is not a consideration at all. Illness is not a consideration at all. You get 3 weeks for vacation, personal, & sick. Nothing more.

Company Image

The image does not reflect reality at all. There are very few that speak fondly of the company. Even the slackers complain. Most that do speak fondly change their minds quickly. Most of the employees like each other but cannot stand the unfairness and lack of care from the people running the show.

Job Security

Unless you mess up with attendance you will never lose your job. There are no other expectations.

Handicapped Accessibility

The faculty is equipped to accommodate the disabled. Not really something you can let go.

Workplace Safety

Safety is an ongoing project throughout the facility.

Challenging Work

This gets 3 stars because I am proud of my work & do feel accomplished when I am allowed to do what I do and what I'm there to do.

Inclusive / Diverse

There is just enough diversity to get by without getting in trouble. Diverse opinions are not supported.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management overhaul is the consensus of every employee I've had conversations with about the company. Said with all due respect.

What I like about the company

Close to home and my co-workers that care about our future there like I do.

What I dislike about the company

Lack of support. Lack of growth. Lack of expectations.
