Company Culture

Although the company proports to value teamwork highly, the overall feeling cultivated by ownership is anything but.

Teamwork

As previously stated, the atmosphere does not promote teamwork...quite the opposite, unfortunately

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation is very industry- competitive

Office / Work Environment

Attempts are made to provide a pleasant environment (physically and technology- wise)

Environmental Friendliness

Recycling programs in place and soy- based inks used

Work-Life Balance

One star says it all, I believe

Job Security

Fair amount of turnover

Inclusive / Diverse

Although individuals are asked for their ideas and input, diversity is not valued

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make it a priority to act respectfully to employees and expect employees to respect one another. With regard to a team atmosphere, don't allow or encourage finger pointing, and instead encourage employees to succeed AND fail as a team, with less emphasis on individual successes or failures.

What I like about the company

Raven provides competitive pay and benefits.

What I dislike about the company

Ownership does not encourage a "team" mentality for its employees, based on the pressure put on individuals to outdo one another. Although employees are told they should act as a team, employees are encouraged to talk negatively about each other, and other departments, which leads to an overall feeling of distrust. Departments are therefore focused on placing blame on each other in order to "look good" in the eyes of ownership. Owners speak to Managers in a condescending manner in front of Managers' subordinates, making for an uncomfortable environment for all.

Company Culture

Supervisors are berated by the owner and they, in turn berate employees. No fairness. No trust exists.

Support from management

No leadership support whatsoever. They are more than happy to berate an employee when mistakes are made. Managers get the brunt on a daily basis from owner. One owner is not supportive in a one-on-one capacity. Head of HR is owner's wife making approachability limited.

Teamwork

As far as no mistakes are made, employees work well together but will turn on each other when mistakes happen. Finger pointing is common place. Throwing fellow worker under a bus to keep from being berated is also common place. A level of fear is fostered making forming relationships difficult.

Internal Communication

Most employees are not told how well or poorly the company is doing. Rumors abound. Owners are not forthcoming about company financials. No share the wealth attitude at all.

Gender Equality

All workers are treated equally poor.

Attitude towards older colleagues

No senior workers. Long serving employees are managers and will be considered above all.

Career Development

Not a place for growth professionally. Employees with college degrees are rare and mostly non existent. Not a criteria for employment.

Overall compensation for your work

Hourly pay is in line with current standards. Pay increases are rare and mostly non existent. Employer is rarely late with pay. Benefits are offered after sufficient employment time.

Office / Work Environment

Computers are up to date. Copiers are up to date. Bindery equipment is held together with spit and bailing wire.

Environmental Friendliness

Company recycles paper waste.

Work-Life Balance

Work hours are strictly adhered to in so far as micromanaging hours worked and clock in time. Employees are berated for lack of punctuality or time over 40 hours per week.

Company Image

Employees do not speak fondly of the company or one of the two owners.

Job Security

Job stability is tied to work. Bindery positions are a revolving door.

Handicapped Accessibility

Not needed. Workplace is one level and out door ramps were to sidewalks were existing. No disabled workers.

Workplace Safety

Company complies with all OSHA standards and workplace injuries are taken seriously.

Challenging Work

sense of accomplishment will come from customers only. Owners and managers rarely offer encouragement or praise. Company takes credit for work done well but doesn't hesitate to place blame for errors in products.

Inclusive / Diverse

These ideas are spoken not practiced.
