What I like about the company

The worker bees are very knowledgeable and accomplish many tasks.

They only take care of their family! If you are not kin to the owners, they will withhold or delay your sales commissions.

Company Culture

There was very little trust or sense of fairness. Some employees were treated differently from others with little or no reason as to why.

Support from management

Leaders in all departments were lacking in people skills and had no access to training for improving their business sense or interpersonal communication skills.

Teamwork

Coworkers really banded together and tried to overcome the lack of support from the leadership above them.

Freedom to work independently

Individual employees had autonomy. Maybe too much as they were left to succeed or fail on their own.

Internal Communication

Supervisors had a high turnover rate and often there would be months between department meetings as a result.

Gender Equality

No woman who took leave for maternity returned to work. Only one woman was promoted above the position she was hired for in the ten years I worked there.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Only two senior workers were hired in the ten years I worked there and they were both friends of the owner. Also, one long-serving colleague was encouraged to retire.

Career Development

While I was able to advance due to some extremely hard work, I did notice that others who definitely deserved to advance did not. Nepotism is rampant and those who benefited from it rose quickly.

Overall compensation for your work

Full health insurance is available, but quality of coverage diminished every year. Wages and salaries definitely didn't match the responsibilities of positions, but were usually paid on-time with the exception of commissions.

Office / Work Environment

It was not a priority to update computers, equipment or software. The building itself had no real renovations in the ten years I worked there.

Environmental Friendliness

This was not a priority for this company. No thought was given to fair trade or global impact.

Work-Life Balance

Overtime is mandatory for some Departments per workload demands and little notice is given sometimes when weekend work is required. Vacation time is very hard to take and family is not an acceptable reason for time off in most cases.

Company Image

Most employees spent most of their time complaining about other coworkers or supervisors. Usually their complaints were valid.

Job Security

People were let go and positions were restructered in efforts to make up for profit losses.

Handicapped Accessibility

There were no employees with disabilities hired in the ten years I worked there.

Workplace Safety

I believe OSHA standards were met and the most frequent meetings and trainings were about workplace safety.

Challenging Work

I did feel as though the work was challenging and I had a sense of accomplishment when I succeeded despite the lack of support from others.

Inclusive / Diverse

The mentality of the leadership is old school and very rigid. New ideas are not met with acceptance or excitement.

What I like about the company

Many of the people were warm, friendly and knowledgeable.

What I dislike about the company

Rigid mentality of the ownership led to friction among coworkers.
