Company Culture

It’s crap they could care less about you

Freedom to work independently

Plenty of opportunities to work on your own as management never is around.

Gender Equality

There are woman here but only in office

Work-Life Balance

Don’t you dare have a life

Job Security

There is none they are closing this plant to move jobs to a place they closed 10 years ago

Handicapped Accessibility

Ramps and handicap spaces that never get used.

Workplace Safety

The safety team will get you if they can. Gloves glasses earplugs uniforms all for you.

Company Culture

They pretend to value you but in the long run they really don't. They say lead by example but it's more of a do as I say and not as I do. They spend more money on executive retreats in a week than they do on their employees for a year.

Support from management

They really don't care.

Teamwork

If an employee leaves a position on a team, they distribute the responsibility among who is left. From 15 in my previous department down to 3 and no intent to hire replacement. They work you to the bone and expect 110 percent. Ridiculous!

Freedom to work independently

Even with a minuscule department, they still micro-manage.

Gender Equality

Oh, don't even get me started on this one. I was in the same department for 10+ years, received a promotion and then they hired a male counterpart to fill a vacant spot (this is well before they stopped hiring to replace people who left) and I found out the newly hired male made 2x as much as I did though he was doing half the work. Now that's some bs there...

Attitude towards older colleagues

An older colleague can offer an opinion or excellent idea but nothing will get done unless a millennial says the same exact opinion/idea months or even years later.

Overall compensation for your work

It took me a really long time to get paid for what I made but in the end I got paid pretty decent though you work for it for sure!

Work-Life Balance

There is no work-life balance. It's just work.

Job Security

There is none, no one is expendable.

Workplace Safety

They go a bit overboard on safety in the office environment. Have some common sense ladies and not wear stilettos in the middle of winter. It's an office, not a dance club.

Inclusive / Diverse

They say they are all about diversity but for years there were only men that were executives. They only hired a woman as their general council because they probably had to. It's a shame because she's really good!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get rid of the stuffy executives. They think they are above it all and treat their employees like minions.

What I like about the company

The only thing worth mentioning are the employees. I made some very close friends over the years.

What I dislike about the company

You can put in half your life into this company and they will get rid of you at the drop of a hat. Trust no one, no one will have your back. All the people that did have retired or left the company. Not to mention their headquarters is in Toledo. They even tell you what to eat. What a crock!
