Company Culture

The company was very secretive and very rarely were workers commended for good work. It seemed faults were more acknowledged than good, clean work.

Support from management

Management curiously saw many changes as I worked there. Often times managers and supervisors were here one week and gone the next. As far as work load, they informed us of the jobs and gave us the flexibility to work

Teamwork

Teamwork was the only way to get many of the jobs done. After building relations, teamwork was valuable and crucial to daily tasks.

Freedom to work independently

As long as the process was running smooth, autonomy was structured evenly. This really depended on the positions held

Internal Communication

Information was usually received late, last minute. Meetings were scarce and it seemed most times information and new changes were withheld indefinitely until the most inopportune times.

Gender Equality

Women actually held an equal amount, if not more positions of power in the workplace. They were allowed to pursue equal opportunity's as well.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Senior workers and younger employees often got along adequately. The relations and experience shared was pleasant.

Career Development

This comes from a personal viewpoint but career development was flawed to me. Too many changes were promised to promotions and raises and never followed up on or implemented. My supervisor literally told me he was content with me being a cheap worker doing work established for a higher position. They're was a biased system that saw favored workers promoted and others left with nothing.

Overall compensation for your work

While I was told I possibly deserved more money, the salary I had was sufficient. Up until they started cutting overtime and limiting our schedules pay was not a problem.

Office / Work Environment

Working in freezers, most days were cold, but the appropriate gear was provided. Most of the equipment was out of date and often ran into technical problems, causing the workers to struggle and work around them, often times creating a more difficult workload with the same production expectancy.

Environmental Friendliness

The company really did not express their take on environmental awareness. The few chemical alerts that did occur were handled unprofessionally or ignored altogether

Work-Life Balance

Vacation and work schedule was relatively fair. There were times when extra time and days were forced upon us due to production needs. Notification was often last minute.

Company Image

Too many internal problems left the company with a negative image. This corporation was often ridiculed and discredited as a good job due to management.

Job Security

Job security at one time was very stable. It wasn't until the change over of management that job security become a problem. The entire department I came from was eventually laid off. No warning, no retention plans. They often said they were weeding out the weaker workers, but one good Tuesday, my entire department was laid off.

Handicapped Accessibility

No ramps nor elevators were provided for disabled workers. Most work was done on the first floor and any disabled worker would often be moved to minimize traveling.

Workplace Safety

We had training courses at least twice a month. All standards were prominently fluent, the company consequently fell behind in building structure. Bacteria ended up being the main purpose of the closings.

Challenging Work

Yes, with all the tribulations we faced, finally getting our production rolling always left a sense of accomplishment.

Inclusive / Diverse

While they did encourage diversity and opinions, they often fell on deaf ears. Few times opinions were taken into consideration that could have benefited the workers.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The job needs better management and communication regarding employee changes. Also more time and money could be spread into better, more up to date equipment and parts. Working as an operator and mechanic, we often struggled in production because of bad equipment.

What I like about the company

I enjoyed the flexibility in workloads as we had teams that could rotate jobs. I also enjoyed the moderate allocation of overtime which contributed to a better salary, often accompanying lighter workloads on days of no production.

What I dislike about the company

The management and communication was terrible. Often times it seems the workers were thrown into changes and situations at the last minute. Opinions and suggestions were heard, but very rarely followed up on or tested. Aside from management and the secrecy they adopted, the job could have been tolerable. The career development and promotion system was equally flawed and could use a redesign.
