Company Culture

Always seemed they has something bad going on production wise or not getting out enough numbers. Sometimes had nothing to do.

Challenging Work

I recently just quit and have almost worked there a full year. It was nice at first but I did notice there was some targeting torawrds a new friend I sat next to. She kept getting in trouble for not "sitting correctly ". This means you aren't allowed to cross your legs, sit on one leg, or relax your back. Everyone else around me and others were sitting comfortably but for some reason she couldn't. A place not letting you sit comfortably is already a red flag for me. A lot of the time they didn't order more parts so a lot of us had nothing to do and were sent somewhere else in the building. This happened every two weeks or so. On Fridays upstairs on camera side, you have to stand the whole day while the rest of the building is allowed to sit. Some many rules that just didn't make sense. Most of my friends there hate it and will eventually walk out without warning.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More communication towards employees.

Company Culture

Company culture seems great in the beginning, but there is not a lot of value expressed from leadership for individual contributors.

Support from management

Management is a mess, there is not a lot, if any, encouragement. Just negative comments and a lot of inappropriate conversation.

Teamwork

Teams work well together, and truly like each other. That is the only reason this company has any success.

Office / Work Environment

It seems like it would be fun, cool building, free beverages, even a keg for sales. But really, it is very low morale and most of the people who have been there more than 6 months want to get out.

Work-Life Balance

They tout Unlimited PTO, but this is really just a way not to carry the financial burden of time accrued vs time taken. It is left up to the Managers, which leads to the poor work life balance.

Inclusive / Diverse

Very much a good 'ole boys club. Women that do work there are mostly in subsurvient roles and tend to not be offended by off-color commentary.

Suggestions for improvement

  • No more Unlimited PTO, Managers are often unfair or critical. More oversight of middle management and how they operate, what is the morale of the team?

What I dislike about the company

All of the things that were attractive in the interview process, and for the first part of my tenure turned out to be a dog an pony show. When too much is left up to middle management, and there are not clear expectations from the company, too much is left uncertain.
