- Rand McNally & Company20.Jul 2016
There are no reviews or guidance. No raises. No benefits.
Support from management
Upper management is really clueless about the direction of the company and do not involve employees in the decision-making process.
Best thing about the company are fellow employees.
Regular townhall meetings where we are told how great things are going. These are usually followed by layoffs.
Attitude towards older colleagues
THey tend to hire younger single males that they can expect to work all hours.
There is no prospect for advancement or training or personal development. Although employees are continually asked to take on more responsibilities, it is not tied to any title or compensation.
Overall compensation for your work
Most benefits have been cut and there were no raises for several years until earlier this year when some people were given a 1% raise.
Office / Work Environment
COnsolidated two floors to save money on rent resulting in very cramped conditions and lack of space for new employees.
Ha. Yeah right.
The CEO has recently stated that he expects employees to work 10-12 hour days and doesn't understand why people leave at 5PM.
People used to be proud of the long history and name Rand McNally but no more. Now they are just another company pumping out cheap product that nobody needs.
Layoffs all of the time while upper management give themselves bonuses
elevators no ramps. Wheelchair wouldn't be able to get in the front door.
No training and not sure what the osha standards are for an office.
Inclusive / Diverse
They don't really promote diversity. The male/female ratio is out of balance.
Suggestions for improvement
- People will be excited to come to work when they feel they will be rewarded for their hard work and not just have more demanded from them while having their already few benefits reduced even more.
What I like about the company
I like that I get a regular paycheck
What I dislike about the company
I dislike that there are no real raises, no benefits, promotion from within, no real recognition for a job well done.
