One day you are told that you are doing a great job, the next your being let go. Don't trust what they tell you. THEY LIE!
Support from management
Right hand doesn't speak to the left hand and then everyone wonders why nothing really works.
Teamwork? That's why no one under management knew about a buy out that slashed the company in half. Yep. Thats teamwork alright.
Freedom to work independently
Workload fair? Not even close. Because of an overall lack of communication, nothing ever happens. Needed items and new products don't come to fruition.
No communication. No evaluations, no feedback, nothing. Unless its bad news or someone complains about you, don't expect hear anything about your performance.
There is no such thing as regular meetings, they get canceled on a whims notice for any reason, especially if the managers take a 3 hour "working" lunch.
No two people are treated equal within the company. Not at all. Men, women, black, white. No one. Not even close.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Older employees are treated as thought they are ancient and out of touch. There is not currently one employee who is left, that is over the age of 60.
Overall compensation for your work
Benefits were great, and decently priced. Compensation was a bit of a joke.
Office / Work Environment
Computers are junk, new "green" building is always cold. Literally, your fingers will turn blue, and the use of spaces heaters is prohibited.
This is the only good thing I can say about this company. I never felt pressure to hang out with my fellow employees after hours, unless I wanted too. Loved not having to work the weekends. Also loved the ability to work from home if needed because of a sick child, or a personal issue.
Just about every employee in my former department was unhappy for one reason or another.
I made the mistake of thinking that my job was stable because the parent company was 100 years old, but the company was sold out to a mega monopoly that rips little company's apart and throws away some of the best people that really make the company's that they take over.
It's a "green" building.
Work was great. I loved what I did.
Inclusive / Diverse
Diversity? Umm, what does that even mean? Everyone is basically the same culturally, and as for the actual business methods and practices. Well they are very closed minded and focus on one specific market.
Suggestions for improvement
- Read the review, try to get away from the mega monopoly.
What I like about the company
Despite all of the bad things in my review, I loved what I did and was vary sad to have to say goodbye.
What I dislike about the company
Read the review. Take it to heart.
