Suggestions for improvement

  • give employees more freedom...PTO, ability to work remotely if it's reasonable for their job position, less strict dress code. Office culture is stuffy, old fashioned, very corporate...get with the times, this isn't how/where people want to work anymore.

What I like about the company

my manager is great, love some of the team.

What I dislike about the company

too big, too hard to get good ideas pushed all the way up the ladder & make effective changes.

Company Culture

Some of the local management is great, but corporate is full of money grubbing big wigs who don't give a damn about there employees across the country.

Support from management

Again, loved working for my direct manager, but the main managers don't give a you know what about anyone.

Teamwork

While my department utilized amazing teamwork, often people were out for themselves only trying to get ahead. And the on camera talent have big heads, and often act like divas.

Freedom to work independently

There is no independent work here.

Internal Communication

I stayed on a month extra for a great bonus that I was up for, then a week before I left I found out we would not be receiving the bonus we were promised. Just one small example.

Gender Equality

Women experienced the same amount of successes as men.

Attitude towards older colleagues

One area they do well in, one of our engineers has been there for over 50 years.

Career Development

Basically no upward mobility. Most people leave the company for better jobs after a few years slumming it here.

Overall compensation for your work

This is a very tough and demanding job that pays like absolute crap. Especially considering most of the positions require some level of college experience.

Office / Work Environment

Management makes it known you are an employee smaller than them. They do throw an ok 1 hour Christmas party every year.

Work-Life Balance

Not too bad here. Not impossible to get time off in certain departments. But if your in production good luck!

Company Image

They do try, but they will never catch up to the competition.

Job Security

People are fired left and right for sometimes just not having the "it" factor.

Challenging Work

There is never a dull moment.

Inclusive / Diverse

Probably just because it's Iowa but there wasn't diversity at all.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Corporate needs to keep there word when bonuses are promised. Talent needs to realize they aren't celebrities and they are there to deliver the news.

What I like about the company

Like I said before you stay busy the whole time and often time flies by pretty well.

What I dislike about the company

I laid it all out above.
