Overall compensation for your work
Raises are minimal, but they never miss payroll. The salary is ok. Being there long term doesn't pay off if you're looking to get your salary higher.
We just had a 15% cut in our department even when the company was having a great year. That does NOT make one feel secure.
Suggestions for improvement
- Start making realistic deadlines for IT. Stop expecting EVERY deadline to be a stretch goal. When you constantly put this sort of demand on people, they get demoralized. They can't sustain it. They burn out. If you are trying to run off good employees, then keep doing what you're doing.
What I like about the company
Raises, while not impressive are consistent. Until the last few years, and especially very recently, the job felt secure.
What I dislike about the company
Now that Tempur acquired Sealy, it doesn't feel secure any longer. We had a lay off of salaried personnel of 15% when the company was having a very good year. That does not go over well. It does not make people feel like they are appreciated. It does not make an employee feel like their job is secure. I'm busting my butt, working hard, we're having a good year, and oh, by the way, you're being laid off because the new CEO decided that we needed to cut 15%.
Deadlines for projects are never realistic. You have to kill yourself, work long hours, and give up your personal life to be able to meet the goals. You always feel stressed out and tired. It's not sustainable, but this pressure has no end in sight.
