Company Culture

You'd better be sales or friends/family with the CEO, or you are left behind and not seen.

Support from management

HA!! This is nonexistent. Management is worried about 2 things: Themselves and money, not employees.

Teamwork

The company is run in silos. Each department is their own silo, and nobody talks to anyone outside that department.

Freedom to work independently

Somewhat flexible time off. They claim to give unlimited time off to salary employees, but you are still punished for taking time off, even with advanced notice.

Internal Communication

Horrific communication within the company. They constantly claim that they are working on making this better, but nothing has ever been done to actually improve the communication. If you are not management or sales, you are clueless to anything happening.

Gender Equality

There is 1 female with any pull in the company, and that is only because she was friends with the CEO since day one. All other managers/directors/VP titles are held by males (also friends of the CEO).

Attitude towards older colleagues

Co-Workers are great, management is horrible.

Career Development

No room for moving up in the company. The higher jobs are given to friends/family. You will stay in the job you have until you leave.

Overall compensation for your work

All the money goes to executives, they don't pay well for anyone under VP.

Office / Work Environment

Everyone is always on edge because of the constant layoffs. There have been many promises made to improve work-life, but they have all fallen flat.

Environmental Friendliness

Co-Workers are great, management is horrible.

Company Image

The CEO is making horrible decisions and is burning the company to the ground. The entire company suffers because of his stupid decisions.

Job Security

The company is a sinking ship. There are layoffs every few months, and you are only safe if you are friends with the CEO or hold a director or VP title.

Workplace Safety

Quite a few OSHA concerns witnessed daily.

Challenging Work

The work is challenging only because the company vision is constantly changing. Once a lot of work has been done, the CEO changes his mind (without talking to anyone else) and decides to go a different direction, so all the previous work is lost and everything has to be redone.

Inclusive / Diverse

White-male dominated workplace. The only person with any diversity that has ever been hired was just laid off.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Treat all employees as assets to the company, not just the sales department. Find the right person for jobs instead of hiring friends/family/hunting buddies. Stop trying to find new and exciting business ventures, and stick to what works. Fire the CEO and find someone who knows how to run a company. Actually LISTEN to employee suggestions for improvement. Spend money on the employees that make a difference instead of executives.

What I like about the company

Co-workers (below management) are great people to work with!

What I dislike about the company

Constant lies from management.
Horrible business decisions.
Nepotism to the extreme.
Layoffs every few months.
Sales have been steadily declining since 2013 with no signs of improvement.
Management doesn't know what they're doing because they are just the CEO's friends/family and not actually qualified for their jobs.
