Little to no commendation; employees are essentially told, 'If you don't like it, there's the door.'
Support from management
Ambiguos policys, non-existant communication. Managers make derogatory comments about employees to employees' co-workers.
Colleagues work well together in most situations.
Communication is by way of rumor, innuendo, and mis-direction.
Attitude towards older colleagues
No apparent appreciation for older, more experienced workers.
A recent training program has been implemented, however, it is poorly conceived, inadequate, cumbersome, confusing, and ineffective.
Overall compensation for your work
At one time it was geared to reward the best employees; now it is just the opposite. To make matters worse, we are told that the good have to suffer for the bad, so those of us who do everything properly and follow all the rules, are treated the same as those who do not. We have huge responsibilities. Customers ask for certain individuals by name and demand them for their projects; the company charges a very sizable day rate for us, but continue to whittle down our pay.
Office / Work Environment
The job is typically performed in various hazardous environments.
Company abides by governmental regulations regarding environmental issues.
The nature of the work makes a normal schedule difficult. If the job falls across vacation days, your are expected to give up the vacation. No recompense is provided, other than possibly getting the days back when the job is over. If you miss vacation and the year ends, you lose it.
The job itself is challenging and for the most part, very satisfying.
Suggestions for improvement
- Without the front line employees, no company can be profitable. It would be nice to be treated with the respect and commensurate compensation to reflect that. If you treat your good employees the same as you treat the bad ones, don't be surprised at what you are left with.
What I like about the company
Some of my colleagues are very knowledgable and great co-workers.
What I dislike about the company
In the last 3 years, we have been repeatedly told that we are "overpaid, spoiled, babies." Two highly placed individuals have openly made derogatory, unprofessional, and borderline slanderous comments to employees about other employees under their direction. Their actions betray a petty, aristocratic attitude that demonstrates a complete disregard for those of us in the front line of the job.
