Company Culture

The morale of the workforce is at an all time low. Management does not care about anything except making themselves look good, and getting a prime spot in the WABCO acquisition.

Support from management

You only get support if they can claim your idea as theirs and they like it. Bad news is never acceptable.

Teamwork

Despite the negativity and poor leadership, everyone comes together to ensure our customers are treated respectfully, and orders filled on-time.

Freedom to work independently

With managers that do not care, do all you want. But you will never get recognized or rewarded for it.

Internal Communication

There is NO communication to any of the workforce except to the "drinking buddy" who is visited several times a day. The remainder of the "team" is only contacted when the manager (who has no direct experience or leadership skills) has something negative to say.

Gender Equality

I have no facts, but I believe the female work force is under appreciated and extremely underpaid.

Attitude towards older colleagues

It depends on the manager.

Career Development

It depends on your department. Most have no encouragement or direction from management to advance or improve ourselves. They discourage anyone from doing a better job than they themselves are getting credit for.

Overall compensation for your work

Sheppard has never been known for paying high wages. We all live paycheck to paycheck.

Office / Work Environment

It depends on your department.

Environmental Friendliness

Appears to be very good.

Work-Life Balance

It depends on what department you are in, and what our production levels are. High production-more work, low production-more life (which at times includes furlows).

Company Image

Excellent, thanks to a great product and customer support.

Job Security

Unknown since purchased by WABCO. You can't believe what management tells you because they are only worried about saving themselves, and have had a year ahead of the workforce to negotiate their positions.

Handicapped Accessibility

It could be much better.

Workplace Safety

Depends on your department. They stress safety, but not sure if they back it up when problems are identified. In my job I am expected to get it done. If I get hurt, the attitude is "why didn't you do it differently" and it's your fault you got hurt.

Challenging Work

Every day is a challenge...

Inclusive / Diverse

You either fit in or you don't, no matter where you come from. If you don't, you won't get anywhere.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Great people quit because of bad managers and leadership. It's time for WABCO to clean house in that area.

What I like about the company

The promising future with WABCO. I love their Code of Conduct. If they enforce it, it will reform Sheppard into a world-class company and THAT IS WHAT WE NEED.

What I dislike about the company

The lack of good leadership and managers. The lack of support from the company for anyone having problems in their personal life, which affects their work (no sympathy, empathy, encouragement, or human services offered or available).
