Company Culture

You best not complain about your supervisors or managers. No one cares, and it will lead to your being shown the door.

Support from management

Poor leadership with no real guidance.

Teamwork

Some are better than others. Most simply don't care anymore.

Freedom to work independently

Most of your work comes to you by chance. If you're good at it, you'll get more of it.

Internal Communication

Lots of meetings, but nothing progressive. You might get chastised in front of others.

Gender Equality

Pay differences can be found, and women are expected to dress a little "prettier" than the men. Think "Fashion Show" and "Drama Queens"

Attitude towards older colleagues

Long term employees, most of who are older, have been regularly let go for no real good reason.

Career Development

Very little opportunity for advancement. Almost non-existant.

Overall compensation for your work

Decent pay and benefits for the most part. Expensive medical deductions.

Office / Work Environment

Typical networking problems common to many organizations. Nothing major here.

Environmental Friendliness

Some employees take it on themselves to recycle, but the company has no real program in place, and does not make charitable contributions.

Work-Life Balance

Pretty flexible in most cases.

Company Image

Over the last 5 years, this has changed dramatically. Morale is down, employees have left in high numbers. They're not quitting their jobs as much as they are quitting their managers.

Job Security

Over past 5 years, security and stability have dwindled.

Handicapped Accessibility

Since these were already in the building when leased, they've been maintained.

Workplace Safety

They likely would fail an OSHA inspection, or at least be ordered to make changes.

Challenging Work

You can be proud all you want, no one really appreciates it, though. I wouldn't sacrifice my own ethics due to lack of praise; I just accept that I do a good job, and move on.

Inclusive / Diverse

Forget about it. They do not want your opinions if they clash with their own.

Company Culture

It used to be a decent place to work. Currently, people are frequently spoken to in condenscending tones or in unapreciative manners. Perhaps someday, things will improve.

Support from management

New managers have been inconsistant in their direction, lack leadership and people skills, and have made no real effor to get to know or understand their employees' needs, desires, etc. We are nothing to them. Managers frequently sit in their offices with doors closed; most of us won't even waster our time trying to talk to them.

Teamwork

Most of the workers get along with each other and help each other, which is good, because you won't get that kind of support from our current management.

Freedom to work independently

Bulk of the workloads fall on just a couple more seasoned employees; no real say in the matter; the work just appears on your desk or in your email, etc.

Internal Communication

We know when we're NOT doing something right. Meetings tend to be too frequent, lengthy, and unproductive. Too much reliance on emails results in people feeling that they have no voice; communication leaves a lot to be desired.

Gender Equality

No real issues here; few women managers, and very few minority workers throughout. Not aware of any issues involiving peopel returning to work after pregnancy or other medical issues.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older people generally are not hired; those who became "old" on the job are frequently disrespected. Our new, younger managers, are oblivious about the number of years or levels of experience that the older workers have. They treat them as if they are somehow hindering the operation. New employees are not discouraged from treating the existing employees with disrespect.

Career Development

There is no room for advancement. Employees are usually not even considered when new openings arise.

Overall compensation for your work

Our medical deductibles are on the high side, but not extraordinarily so. Pay is decent. This is one area that makes the rest tolerable.

Office / Work Environment

Work is being done to improve the facilities. Safey issues in warehouse have not been adequately addressed. Too many loud conversations within the office area are frequently disruptive, and embarrasing when customers can hear it over the phones.

Environmental Friendliness

Recycling efforts are not made; they don't want to pay for a recycling dumpster. Paper materials almost always are discarded in the trash. Some packaging materials are reused, and some employees take recycleables home to put in their own recycle bins. A lot of waste is normal.

Work-Life Balance

This is one area that usually well balanced, due mostly to cooperation among coworkers than from managemental ability. We usually work things out with each other before managers are involved.

Company Image

The image used to be a lot better; recent additions to management, and their "superiority complex" has caused a downgrade in this area. Most of us just don't say anything, avoiding the issue.

Job Security

Mostly things have been stable; the financial end seems to be good, however, the current managemental practices have caused a feeling of unrest, and rumors have circulated.

Handicapped Accessibility

Depends on the position; a handicapped person would find great difficulty in our warehouse. The facility is single level, so a disabled person could maneuver fairly well; bathrooms could be a challenge due to lack of hand rails. We currently have no one with disabilities fo this nature, at our facility. I like to think we would be accomodating if that were to change.

Workplace Safety

Moving parts carousels are not fenced off; you literally could get caught in it as it moves. Step ladders to reach high areas are in disrepair and often too short to reach upper shelves. Current management is more concerned with painting the office than addressing safey issues. We've been very lucky, in that we've not had any serious injuries.

Challenging Work

There's no appreciation or rewards for jobs well done. I still take pride in my work, and do it well, despite the lack of appreciation from managers. I receive a good deal of compliments from customers and some coworkers, but little from management. I no longer enjoy the job, however, as there is no possiblilty of advancement, beyond receiving additional work load. (It's what happens when you do things right. More comes your way.)

Inclusive / Diverse

Ideas used to be welcome, even if deemed unuseable. Too often now, people who try to suggest something are "shushed" or dismissed without having been heard. Managers are too busy trying to make a name for themselves....and they have done just that, just not in a good way.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Managers need to learn the jobs that their employees are doing, and develop some understanding and appreciation of the positions. They don't even know who does what, why, how, etc., yet they can tell us we don't know what we're doing! Treat your employees the way you expect to be treated.

What I like about the company

The pay and benefits are competitive. Most of my coworkers are good, decent people and are easy to work with.

What I dislike about the company

Our current management needs to get off their high-horse, recognize and show genuine appreciation for the efforts made by employees, and learn to tolerate our differences, and opinions.
