Most of the company consist of family members and close friends to the owners. They show favortism and allow individuals to not follow policies and procedures (what little they have in place) while throwing the book at others. Reviews are not conducted on time and could take up to 6 months to perform. Promises are made about pay and benefits that are never fullfilled.
Support from management
Upper management doesn't set good examples for other employees on how employees should treat one another. Disrespective behavior and degrading comments about women.
For the most part everyone works well together but there are some that are definitely not what I would call a people person and come across very negative.
Freedom to work independently
Company is very short staffed for the amount of work the company produces. Everyone is over loaded with work and not enough time to finish it all causing errors to be made. Lower management is micro managed without the freedom to have a say in the structuring of their own area of responsibility.
Everyone is so busy that no one ever reads their emails and communication with in the company about what is happening with
Great place to work when it comes to work life balance. If you need time off for a sick child or the weather is too bad you can work from home.
Employees complain daily of how they company can't pay their subs. The amount of work they do they can't fund the jobs since they don't have the capital. Most of their work is insurance work and more and more of it is being controlled by mortgages so they have to front all of the money to run the jobs (material and labor cost) and then it might take weeks to months before they ever get a dime from the insurance company, customer, or mortgage company.
Once your hired in the owners don't like to let people go but there are so many ups and downs a lot of employees left because their was no way to know if we'd still have a job or not 6 months down the road.
Suggestions for improvement
- They need to get out of doing all insurance work and more self pays to increase their capital. They need policies and procedures put in place and everyone needs to be treated equally and fairly.
What I like about the company
The job pays really well, has a lot of extras for individuals like insurance, 3 weeks vacation and they are very flexible if you need time off or need to work from home.
What I dislike about the company
How disrepective and rude some of the employees get with other employees and the comments made about women. I was promised a lot of things when I went to work for the company that never happened.
