Suggestions for improvement

  • Workplace policies are strong. The culture is one of fear sometimes which is somewhat normal in a merger atmosphere. Quite honestly the culture is good. Everyone gets along with few exceptions and it’s a reasonably paced work environment. Management at the plant level can sometimes be frustrating.

What I like about the company

I’ve been able to further my education with relevant training. The people above and below me are great. The company is diverse and inclusive to all. We are very environmentally conscious and make strong efforts to constantly improve safety and health. Support is normally there when you need it and there is a wealth of knowledge to pull from as well.

What I dislike about the company

Occasionally there are conflicting goals. Some goals are extremely overstated and sometimes unattainable. Management can be disconnected from the plant level operations sometimes and that causes a lot of frustration. Not a lot of support from the corporate level.

Company Culture

Horrible unless you are a white collar worker.

Support from management

You get no support. Actually they will lie and manipulate the budgets to make it look like you are o er budget so they can justify a lower increase during evaluations.

Teamwork

There is you and then them. You will get no help from management, and because of this other techs will refuse to help as well.

Freedom to work independently

Absolutely. You are alone with no support so you can definitely work independent.

Internal Communication

Not good. They communicate nothing and now they have done away with evaluations.

Gender Equality

No women in our division.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The guys that have stuck around are treated horrible because they make more money. Trying to get rid of them to save money on salaries.

Career Development

None. They refused to pay for my electrical engineering degree twice. I paid for it on my own and graduated. No room for advancement but after working for this company for nine years I figured out that I do not have any desire to advance here.

Overall compensation for your work

About 15%-20% below industry standard. The shareholders are going to see how overinflated there Margins are in the next 18 months.

Office / Work Environment

Horrible. No support, open door policy is a joke.

Environmental Friendliness

They try to be but by throwing money at a problem does not make you environmentally friendly.

Work-Life Balance

On call 24/7. They don't care less your plants aren't running.

Company Image

Not good. Inside the workers do not care and outside the company their image will be crashing soon enough.

Job Security

Based on contracts with customers. Not good. Sales staff completely over leverages their position and bullies the customer to get the contract signed. If I had to deal with our sales staff as a customer I would ban them from the site.

Workplace Safety

Again, you can keep throwing money at an issue, but they have over done it and to complete any work requires an act of God.

Challenging Work

Sometimes

Inclusive / Diverse

No other races in our division.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Completely break this company apart and sell each division. Soon there will be a monopoly by this company and two others.

What I like about the company

Nothing. Morals, ethics and just being a good human being are highly questioned here.

What I dislike about the company

No morales, or ethics. Management is only concerned with their Margins. They are continually losing mid level guys and soon there workforce will consist of guys ready to retire and no one to take their place. Be warned, please stay away from this company.
