Company Culture

The culture is there, especially for certain employees. They haven’t grasped the American culture yet, though.

Support from management

The support from management is not there. I’ve watched many fellow coworkers go through similar experiences as mine and I hate it. Management will generally blame you before blaming the real cause of issues if you bring things up.

Teamwork

Teamwork, or lack thereof, is another downfall of this company. When I first joined, I was placed in a team that displayed a good system for teaching and it grew worse as things changed.

Freedom to work independently

Each team is given this chance and if you’re good at it, you flourish.

Internal Communication

The communication lack is the downfall of this company. You can reach out to management about something, but 85% of the time, if not more, they ignore you. I don’t like feeling as if I need to send a read receipt to know my issues were heard, and I hate how they don’t like to have anything in writing/email.

Gender Equality

I don’t, personally, feel like there is equality for genders here.

Career Development

The company wants their employees to improve and grow, but I’m disappointed at the lack of support for this.

Overall compensation for your work

I’ve discovered that for someone coming in that had little to no experience, they get OK pay, but nowhere near what other companies offer. As for raises, they’re OK as a yearly raise but when you change roles or positions you don’t get a good raise at all.

Environmental Friendliness

This depends on the team you work with.

Work-Life Balance

For me, I think this is a huge perk for the company. However, this varies drastically for each team.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get to know how other companies who do the same thing pay their employees, as well as communicate to the employees. Management needs a lot of work, and training is a MUST for successful careers. No one likes feeling stupid or lost, and if that happens you’ll lose people and quickly.

What I like about the company

The Insurance the company offers is above and beyond any I’ve ever seen, and the company pretty much pays for it for you. There are a lot of amazing people working for the company that are good at guiding you, but you have to look for them.

What I dislike about the company

Lack of communication, low pay and high expectations. I also do not like how there is not a 401K match. The company has not got a good system to keep track of PTO, so you will have to be sure to do this yourself or you’ll randomly be short a lot of days.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Senior management needs to take a hard look at the managers they have in charge. Have some communication within the organization. Give more than a 1% raise per year and stop drawing names on what employees won't get that 1% raise.

What I like about the company

that you will get a pay check

What I dislike about the company

Company promotes only a selected few, you will work long hours with no extra pay and they expect you to work more than 8 hours and work on the weekend. There is no communication within the organization and no one will take responsibility or everyone points blame at others. If you travel then don't expect to get reimbursed for your travels for at least 3 months.
