You will rarely get a compliment unless you are one of the favorites.
Support from management
Supervisors tend to take the side of their favorites, regardless of who's right
Favorites will get the easier work.
Freedom to work independently
You get left alone on a site a lot.
Spend more time with rumors than acual facts.
Women do not have the same opportunities.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Have seen older employees treated badly when they can't keep up with someone in their twenties.
There is no further training unless you're a favorite.
Overall compensation for your work
Benefits are mimimal and you pay for any extras. Salaries are paid on time, but you'll never get a raise unless you ask regularly. Salary does not match the responsibility unless you have been asking for raises regularly.
Office / Work Environment
You're out in all kinds of weather with hazardous chemicals.
No awareness of social matters, minimally aware of environmental matters.
You will work a lot, pre approved vacation time can be revoked at any time. Expect to have hardly any home life.
I have never heard anyone but upper management speak fondly of the company.
There is no job security.
There is no comprehensive training program and they have been known to pull the safety coordinator out of the field when they are doing work they know is unsafe but they want it done anyway.
You can be proud of anything you learn because they don't have a comprehensive training program. Basically you get thrown into a potentially explosive environment and you're told to figure it out.
Inclusive / Diverse
They have men, women, and some minorities working but not open to opinions or ideas unless you're a favorite.
Suggestions for improvement
- Upper management are in SERIOUS need of management and HR training. A comprehensive training program needs to be implemented not only so that everyone gets the same training but so that unknowledgable people aren't put in a potentially explosive environment where they can hurt themselves or others.
What I like about the company
They do occasionally hire good people.
What I dislike about the company
Unsafe, discriminatory towards women and minorities, hostile work environment.
