Company Culture

Very unstable atmosphere you can be commended for doing good one day and told your position is being eliminated the next.

Support from management

Family squabbles over control and direction of the company make it difficult to succeed through the times of transition between leadership. Direct leadership is non existent at best.

Teamwork

Very much of a click type group you are either in or out.

Internal Communication

Communication was excellent for years. Then suddenly non existent. When there was communication it was too down to tell everyone do better or be replaced.

Attitude towards older colleagues

During my time there were several experienced employees of long tenure that were constantly being pushed to do more or be replaced. It felt like they were not being appreciated for all they had done to grow the business over the years. The new objective was to replace with younger employees that could be trained and would cost the company less.

Career Development

Some training was provided on a local level but not much. Future growth was very limited as family controls all of the upper management positions.

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation at the time was comparable to like positions within the industry with the exception of commissions paid. It was as if you were only ever going to make a certain amount regardless of how well you were able to do

Office / Work Environment

No sense of urgency to fulfil customer orders, or address customer issues. Subpar equipment with no one to address the issues with

Inclusive / Diverse

You are part of the click or you are an outsider with no way to break through

What I like about the company

For many years Sayle oil was one of the premier lubricant companies to work for in the area. They took care of their employees and valued their employees.

What I dislike about the company

New generation of family ownership is taking the company in a whole different direction with no employee loyalty at all.
