Company Culture

The culture is great when people actually stick to the rules and work hard. Which is rarely

Support from management

They don't support their management team at all

Teamwork

The hard workers are amazing team players. The people who don't think they have to do anything and can get away with it make it a hostile environment

Freedom to work independently

The few hard workers get stuck doing everything

Internal Communication

There is little communication between the workers and corporate which is unfortunate because if they actually paid attention they would be able to make the company as great as it used to be

Gender Equality

One word favoritism

Attitude towards older colleagues

Haven't met anyone that age

Career Development

No upward mobility. They tell you there is but never follow through

Overall compensation for your work

Raises are .10 after working. For a company over 10 years

Office / Work Environment

Poor conditions. They basically rely on the few hard workers until those worker don't want to work for the company anymore

Work-Life Balance

No respect for you requested days off and no respect for your time when you not clocked in. They feel you should drop everything at any moment they feel they need you.

Challenging Work

When only 2 or 3 people actual do work and you higher management leave early all the time and make you do their work it become a challenge to not quit

Suggestions for improvement

  • I won't bother it is truly a waste of time saying anything

What I like about the company

It used to be a place I liked going to. I honestly don't like working here anymore

What I dislike about the company

They don't value their workers
