Too many people have left because of the culture. Management sets the tone that everyone is replaceable and doesn't appear to address the issues as to why they have a high turnover rate.
Support from management
It would be helpful if the leaders in the company would be more transparent with everyone. There is a sense of divide between "us" and "them" thereby alienating most people. Seasoned employees left because the culture is not nourishing, but volatile. The software and computers haven't been updated since early 2000's, and this is not a priority for them. It is very frustrating seeing money spent repeatedly on lunches for weekly meetings and other things while leaving employees using outdated equipment that makes daily tasks challenging.
The teamwork amongst exempt employees is awesome. There was a sense of unity and a genuine desire to help others succeed.
Freedom to work independently
Micromanagement at its finest!
No transparency at all.
Office / Work Environment
Office is nice but technology is lacking at best.
Great working hours, flexibility in schedule and as long as the work is completed there are no complaints.
Suggestions for improvement
- Use the people you hired for the specific skills they bring. There are far too many talented people that are not working to their fullest potential because there is a lack of trust. Be more open to positive change that will increase moral and allow employees take pride in what they do. There many bright people there that have lost their shine due to micromanagement, and who have stopped making suggestions for improvement because they felt voiceless. Your employees are your greatest assets- make them feel like they matter.
What I like about the company
The coworkers are the best part of the job. For the most part, everyone is very friendly and there is a sense of commoridity. The flexibility in schedule was also appreciated although this seemed to be different with different departments.
What I dislike about the company
Opinions and ideation for improvement tended to fall on deaf ears. Processes were backwards ergo making people work harder and not smarter. Technology was dated, web blocks prohibited people from doing their job and no sense of urgency to address it. Most people do not communicate their opinions to upper management for fear of retaliation.
