Suggestions for improvement

  • The culture was great, co workers were great. Policies changed constantly without informing employees

What I like about the company

My fellow co workers were amazing as was my manager. Everyone would help one another. The problems were from the higher ups especially after the merger began. They wanted to let go 90% of the workforce, which is what eventually happened. But instead of laying people off like most companies that are above board would do, they made up new rules, some of which no one was told about, until the moment they were let go because of them. Everyone that was let go was let go for ‘performance ‘. 90% of employees were not performing? A lot of shady things were happening.

What I dislike about the company

The way that people were fired was possibly illegal
