They are mostly customer image sensitive
Support from management
Comments from others are not necessarily investigated for truth, and are acted upon their word.
Very cliqueish. Sometimes resist working together.
Freedom to work independently
All work independently done
Quarterly meetings to bring out this information
I saw no problems here
Attitude towards older colleagues
On many occasions I heard people talking down about older employees, even making age comments in front of them. Most employees are younger.
There are limited positions within the company, but they are open to letting people move to a new position to advance themselves. There was training when first employed, but little later.
Overall compensation for your work
My salary here was the lowest that I had made in many years.
Office / Work Environment
Temperatures in some areas are not great, but they do have proper ventilation, lighting and technology
No recycling program
I had the best job hours here than any other job I have ever had. They limit you to 40 hours per week in most cases.
I was happy to support their product in any way that I could. The company is highly regarded in the field.
I considered the job temporary. Slightly over 100 employees in the company. Most months they would fire 5 people. In the biggest month they fired 11 people. One person took some FMLA leave to take care of his sick wife, and was fired when he returned. Another had 3 deaths in his family, took vacation for the one, and 3 day bereavement leave for the other two. Was fired shortly after the last one. In one 6.5 month period, they fired 35 people.
Normal sidewalk ramps. Had some handicapped employees.
The job was challenging. I am proud of the many things that I created that either did not exist, or had problems, before I took them over.
Inclusive / Diverse
There was a variety of ideas in the workplace, but once something was decided, it would be followed. I think that this is normal.
Suggestions for improvement
- Better backing of subordinates
What I like about the company
What I dislike about the company
Terminate employees more than any other company I have worked for. Have had some crazy rules. In one case, they demanded that you be into work by a specific time, and that if you will not be, you must call in two hours early to let them know. You cannot always do this. Had one instance where I started driving to work 1.5 hours before that time (normal 20 minute drive), and had a traffic backup where I got stuck between two exits for over an hour, making me late. There was no way that I could forsee this and call in two hours early. Written reprimand was the result.
