Company Culture

Terrible. Employees are treated like children. Employees are not empowered. Employees are not trusted.

Support from management

No clear company goals or individual goals. It is very hard to be successful here. The top guy makes all decisions and does not value your input.

Teamwork

Some team members are great and supportive. Others are divisive and condescending.

Freedom to work independently

Micromanaged all the time. Salaried employees have to click in/out for shifts and for lunch.

Internal Communication

Communication is often lacking or unclear. Sometimes communication borders on untruthful.

Gender Equality

This is one big plus at Summit

Attitude towards older colleagues

There are almost no senior employees working here. No, they are not valued.

Career Development

Company does not have any planning for development. No reimbursements for school, etc. they don't seem to care about developing anyone.

Overall compensation for your work

They pay less than surrounding businesses do for the same type and amount of work. Benefits are awful.

Office / Work Environment

Office and Mfg areas are safe and relatively clean. Technology is ancient. Software is old and outdated. Methods are very old school. Needs to be brought into the last decade for processes.

Environmental Friendliness

No recycling. Printing on paper is encouraged over electronic copies (mind blown).

Suggestions for improvement

  • Listen to management team and employees

Company Culture

There have been some wonderful managers who have come and gone. The ones that left needed to stay. The ones that stayed, need to go.

Support from management

All of "good" upper management has left the company. The couple of managers that have remained with the company, are the reason everyone else left.

Teamwork

Employees, in their respective departments, work together fine. The company, on a whole, does not integrate well.

Freedom to work independently

There is a lot of micro managing going on here. Department managers are mostly undermined.

Internal Communication

Minor communication. Mostly left in the dark.

Gender Equality

There is equality.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Mostly young workers, out of college. A few older workers. Not a lot of appreciation. There is a bit for a few favored employees.

Career Development

There is no room for advancement. Even if they hire a person in with that promise, it never happens.

Overall compensation for your work

Benefits are low to average. Payscale is as low as they can get you. Most employees that leave achieve jobs that either double their salary, or increase their wages at least 20k.

Office / Work Environment

Facility is clean. Nothing is up to date! Everything is patchwork.

Work-Life Balance

Low level employees have some work life balance.

Company Image

In all the time I have worked there I have never heard an employee say something positive about the company. New hires are generally looking to leave within a month of hire. Sometimes they get stuck for a year as they search for something better. There is always relief and smiles when they give 2 weeks notice.

Job Security

Job is very stable. They are happy to have you for the low pay.

Handicapped Accessibility

Not the sort of company to provide these needs.

Workplace Safety

Conditions are fairly safe. Come in to your position knowing the standards.

Challenging Work

I feel the company puts up a front.

Inclusive / Diverse

There is some diversity.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management overhaul!!

What I like about the company

I liked going in and doing my job without too much distraction.

What I dislike about the company

A few in management are pleasant to your face. Some of the management team will not speak to people, even if they speak first. There is nepotism, and a general lack of respect for those not on the management team. There is a lot of talk and little action when it comes to supporting and promoting employees. They dole out crumbs. Those who have worked there and left will understand everything I've just written. Hard to believe this review is true. Ask anyone who has ever worked there. My advice? Walk away.
