Company Culture

The company as a whole is pretty good. They're very into community involvement, they treat their employees well. Personal experience was not great.

Support from management

Everything is hush-hush and secret. Management won't speak to you...you have to talk through the "chain of command"...

Teamwork

If you aren't in the clique, don't bother. If you are unfortunate enough to be put with someone with the inability to train, it is a problem. If you find a better way to do something that is more efficient, it is not appreciated.

Freedom to work independently

Just NO...

Internal Communication

HR was good enough to let us know on a consistent basis when people either quit or were fired... Communication within the department was somewhat lacking due to interpretation of what employees vs. contractors needed to know. There is a definite line between contractors and "real" employees.

Gender Equality

Typical in the office setting

Attitude towards older colleagues

Not sure...I didn't see any older people working there

Career Development

no

Overall compensation for your work

I was paid well enough and the discount in the café was nice.

Office / Work Environment

Too many people stuffed into a tiny room with bad air circulation and not enough heat. There was an incident where a person was incredibly sick, all were exposed to the illness, this person had the option of being able to work from home, yet they came in and shared the illness with everyone. Totally irresponsible behavior in a supervisor. Especially since being able to work from home was an option.

Environmental Friendliness

I'm not sure what this means. But they care for the environment and have a weekly trash pick up with volunteers.

Work-Life Balance

They're good about having emergencies to tend to.

Company Image

They're well known, sponsor sports teams and things at Festa Italiana.

Job Security

There were people being fired or quitting on a weekly basis. This was happening for the "real" employees, being a temp/contractor was absolutely terrifying.

Handicapped Accessibility

There's an elevator. But the doors aren't handicap friendly.

Workplace Safety

They're very big on safety.

Challenging Work

Challenge was in getting good training. Unfortunate that some people are allowed to train rather than the people who actually know how to train.

Inclusive / Diverse

They have a large diverse worker population and offer classes to learn English. There might have been an issue with someone qualified to be a supervisor being passed over due to race in favor of someone else with less experience, less education and different race

Suggestions for improvement

  • Cook the pizzas in Palermo Hall correctly...they were raw in the middle and burned on the outside

What I like about the company

Convenient location. Free parking. Onsite food.

What I dislike about the company

The big distinction between contractor/"real" employees. The hush-hush secretive nature of management. Their "blindness" to supervisors who cannot train and not being able to speak to management. Being talked about...
