Suggestions for improvement
- Frankly, The upper management needs to at least get out of the way. There is so much low hanging fruit to make this place a better place to work. They could be more technologically in-touch and pioneering but they really don't need to be. The company does make a lot of money and it is clear that this is their only metric for success.
What I like about the company
What I dislike about the company
Dysfunctional, toxic environment. Unsafe location/neighborhood. Compensation is low to low-average. There is a caste system where if you don't have a degree you are not respected and disposable. The company is behind the times in culture and technology. They waste time, money and opportunity trying to save money. Often people are run hard, pushed beyond their limits with no direction and no regard to their needs to do their job only to be fired with no warning. The replacement will have the same experience. I have witnessed three cycles of this in two departments. Raises are rare and far below inflation. New employees aren't eligible for the few company perks that exist for at least three years.

Very little of this "success" is shared with all of those who make it possible. Although there is no obligation to share, profit sharing (if you have been there at least three years) amounted to 0.4% for me in 2014/2015 - a very, very good fiscal year. Other companies for which I have worked, profit sharing was between 1.5% and 15% during profitable years.
