Company Culture

An influx of terrible managers from IBM has driven this company from a desired place to work to one with terrible morale and dissatisfaction

Job Security

When you work there you will constantly be wondering when the ax will come.

Challenging Work

You are tasked with 3 times what a normal person can do.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get some real managers in that know know how to manage people instead of just dollars.

What I like about the company

The company owner and leader is a great guy but what he has build has just got rotten.

What I dislike about the company

Poor people management, poor management. Lack of clear direction and focus.

Company Culture

Need improvement on including everyone on information and workflow.

Support from management

Leadership does not allow thinking outside the box. Any deviance from management direction or suggestions with better approaches are incompatible with leadership. Also be aware there is nepotism, friends and family all working together and some people let go to make room for other "friends or family".

Teamwork

The culture is too competitive, everyone is worried about who's getting let go next, no one wants to be that guy/gal so everyone is very protective of knowledge and even middle management is afraid to supply good direction.

Freedom to work independently

Workload is fair.

Internal Communication

It takes many meetings to get anything done. Communication is good in that respect.

Gender Equality

Absolutely! Leadership includes some women, there used to be more diversity in that respect.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older colleagues have been let go for various reasons.

Career Development

They do offer career development. If you ask for it however, you will be turned down.

Overall compensation for your work

It's a good paycheck, better than the market value. It's another factor that keeps people from leaving.

Office / Work Environment

The work conditions are good if you are okay with the leadership issues. Most days you won't even see management or know where to find them. Usually they are barricaded in a meeting room somewhere.

Environmental Friendliness

They recycle

Work-Life Balance

Fair about work life balance to a point. Will call you out if you are taking too much time off, even if it is in the limits of written benefits from HR.

Company Image

Employees talk fondly of company to management. Gripe, complain, and look forward to retirement in the backroom conversations.

Job Security

No, the business is in considerable decline, all aspects of what's left of this dying product has been consolidated as customers move off to better options.

Challenging Work

The work is interesting and challenging, its the reason many people stay there even if they are dissatisfied with some of the other aspects of the job.

Inclusive / Diverse

Diverse as any workplace can be.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Leadership needs work. Need to understand better management and motivation techniques. Need to be more available to give direction. Need to listen to creative approaches to problems.

What I like about the company

Challenging work, good compensation

What I dislike about the company

unstable work environment
