Company Culture

Company supervisors rarely if ever commend workers in several departments, fairness is very difficult to assess, and there is a chronic, intense/severe climate of distrust.

Support from management

Supervision in/of our department is almost non-existent, with minimal interaction until there is a problem or crisis, which

Teamwork

Close, intra-departmental colleagues tend to communicate fairly well.

Freedom to work independently

The workload is dictated by the administration aboove, with little or no input encouraged by those actually engaged in the work.

Internal Communication

Communication from administrative personnel is very limited in both content and frequency, and advise/direction/"in-services" are all too often vague if not contradictory.

Gender Equality

There appears to be a trend of reverse discrimination in this company, based on the percentages of females to males working in supervisory/administrative roles relative to the normal population.

Attitude towards older colleagues

It is unclear as to whether the relative lack of senior employees is due to an administrative byass, or due to the nature of the work, however, senior/seasoned employees have periodically been "let-go" and have not been replaced.

Career Development

Career prospects that is company are very limited, and futher training/personal development are for all intents and purposes non-existant.

Overall compensation for your work

This company chronically pays wages below the wages for equivalent positions at similar institutions, which is very significantly below that which would be considered a living wage, and the relatively limited benefits are only being offered to full-time employees, who make up only a rather insignficant percentage of the employee population.

Office / Work Environment

The physical setting is just adequate, though office/desk space is signficantly too small, the computers and other IT resources are signficantly outdated and/or of such limited quality that machines/networks are chronically/periodically inoperable/failing...

Environmental Friendliness

This company's existance depends on the public's perception of it and how it treats its clients, such that it invests its time/resources on garnering support from the community to create a nice facade.

Work-Life Balance

In the past decade or more, this institution has slowly but cosnsistently reduced vacation hours accrewment, reduced working hours and severly limited the number of full time employees such that it provides significantly less for its workers.

Company Image

As the employee population has been slowly but surely been reduced, the percentage of disgruntled employees seeking work elsewhere has increased dramatically, however, open discussion of such feelings only exists between close co-workers/intra-departmental employees.

Job Security

The general feeling is one is great concern that due to continued reductions in funding/allocation of resources to various departments, that non-administrative positions are valued little, and relatively unstable.

Handicapped Accessibility

Despite this being a facility which works with the disabled, accessability options for those with disabilities only just complies with state/national regulations, and it appears that no-one with a disability is actually working for this company.

Workplace Safety

This company has intituted a reward system for non-administrative employees when specific periods of time elapse with no reports/claims of accidents are made to workers compensation.

Challenging Work

The services provided, working with the disabled population, provide whatever intrinsic value to the employee that he/she elects to feel...

Inclusive / Diverse

Due to the very limited monetary/benefits this company provides to its employees, attempting to maintain a sufficient staff to client ratio dominates the diversity issue. Opinions/ideas are rarely solicited, support unclear thereof.

Suggestions for improvement

  • 1. Much, MUCH better, open, HONEST communication. 2. Vastly improved career advancement training. 3. VERY signficantly improved infrastructure, ie. It support, business equipment, (computers, printers, scanners, telephones, etc.,), more desk-space, etc.. 4. Signficanly improved leadership, placement of genuinely experienced/skilled supervisors to lead departments.

What I like about the company

It continues to provide me some contact with a few dedicated colleagues with real integrity.

What I dislike about the company

Despite working for a very extended period of time for this institution, a very limited ability to accrue time-off, nor a genuine living wage...otherwise, see above...
