Support from management
No current support from manager's, its a out for yourself attitude, peers are reluctant to help, communication is non-exsistant in inner department & with other departments.
There's no equality here, women / minorities do not have the same oportunity or get recognized here, it is based on how they like you. Not on the actual work you do.
Attitude towards older colleagues
I have seen older individuals been moved out of long term positions. Younger employees have taken their place even if they do not work as good as the older person did. They try to call it cross training, but these older person's rarely get back to these positions.
No training, no development here.
Overall compensation for your work
Good pay above average, excellent benefits but a little expensive, and 401K is excellent.
Office / Work Environment
Working conditions are not bad, the facility is well taken care of & the company is safe & the facility updated. The work load is not evenly distributed, computers are regularly updated but not everyone has access to them for training. Training is almost non-exsistant, nose levels can be tough in some areas of manufacturing, but ear protection is provided & most PPE is up to date and always avalible.
Enviromental concerns are addressed, company deals with social matters and is very aware of social issues since the product is geared towards these issues.
Good work life balance for regular employees, when you get to an upper level of management it tends to be less. They are really geared towards making sure the average employee has a good work life balance.
No employees do not speak positively of working here whether its mid management or just the average "joe". Often you here "well its a job" statements.
The company said there was growth then hired a lot of temps, but less than a year later all of them have been let go, and it seems the steady work is becoming less & less. No new products are being developed, and the product lines for the products that really provide for the income of the company are forecasted much lower for 2016.
It is a very nice facility which offers accessibility for the handicapped.
Very safe working conditions, safety is rated very high.
Work is challenging but for the wrong reasons, working without proper communication makes it a challange!But I am proud of the product we manufacture as are the manufacturing operators. But when a project is completed & is done correctly its more a sense of relief because its hard to navigate in that kind of work environment when there is no communication or anyone to answer your basic questions, and when there is no sense of team work with peers or other departments.
Inclusive / Diverse
They say there appreciate diversity, but if you do not conform to "their" normal then no you can almost become an "outcast".
Suggestions for improvement
- Talk to your people really interact with them, communicate to everyone with in your department, create a place that leads with respect, give respect and treat others with decency.
What I like about the company
The health care offered, the amount of PTO offered, and the 401K match. I like that on days when the weather is bad they will have a delayed opening.
What I dislike about the company
No sense of team work, no training, and the non-exsistant communication from management to lower levels, and the amount of favoritism, the uncaring attitude for everyone else but yourself.
