Support from management

management was hired from competition side and was able to perform both supervisory and their previous job.

Teamwork

In my dept they wanted you to work as a team but the goal set forth is for individual goals

Internal Communication

You find out things after Senior Managements ideas have been implemented.

Gender Equality

fellow males in the same capacity job duties and experience get paid more than women.

Attitude towards older colleagues

started hiring younger co workers and paying less attention to the older more seasoned employees.

Career Development

didn't offer the correct types of training for the job

Office / Work Environment

very comfortable surroundings

Work-Life Balance

Loved the hours of operation

Inclusive / Diverse

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would be honest with people. Stop pretending you want everyone to try to grow when you already handpicked your chosen few.

What I like about the company

I worked for the company for 17 years and made lasting friendships with a few of the people.

What I dislike about the company

Management may talk about diversity but they are only looking for people that look like them. Mainly young white men. Black people especially women are not valued. People older than 40 are not valued either. They are looking to replace the experienced people with young white newcomers who don't cost as much as the older people but who get promoted without having the knowledge experience or talent that we have. I interviewed for several higher paying positions in the company but the jobs always went to younger white people, even though I had way more experience and my customers loved me. When I questioned it, I never got a direct answer. It is all about who you know -- the last two white people were under 30 and were friends of the vice president and even though they had much less experience, they got the job. The company says it supports every employee but that is not true. They don't listen. They just tell you when you are doing badly. There is no praise. I did my job and always hit my goals but they didn't like me. If you are one of the favorites, you get bad reviews.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Implement an employee opinion survey so that leadership can receive feedback about the leaders that are "protected" for being perceived top performers and tough. They are abusive and it is not an environment that encourages employees to speak up.

What I like about the company

Location of the office. Easy commute.

What I dislike about the company

IT VP is not an honest respectable person. Was treated with a lack of respect and consideration. The worst on-boarding experience and job, along with others in the department, was eliminated after just a few months of joining the company. Felt deceived by HR director, but ended up being relieved to be free of the department and its leader. There are some really good, hard-working people working there who are not appreciated. It is very sad.
