Company Culture

Family members are allowed to work in the same department where one is in management

Support from management

Management is incapable of leading

Teamwork

Leadership demoralizes staff by discussing employees where all can hear

Freedom to work independently

You are micronanaged.

Internal Communication

Leadership smiles in your face while plotting against you behind your back.

Career Development

No one was talking you to achieve more than them

Overall compensation for your work

The company bravs about the billions of dollars in revenue made every quarter, but then you get a .19 raise

Office / Work Environment

Terrible. It's like working around children not cared for by their parents.

Work-Life Balance

You are penalized by "occurrences" when you call in or need to leave in an emergency.

Company Image

It's all smoke and mirrors.

Job Security

There is none.

Inclusive / Diverse

If you miss up to leadership, you are liked. If not, you are in the outside looking in.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Restructure, remice incompetent leadership, value employees.

What I like about the company

The cafe had good food.

What I dislike about the company
