Company Culture

The company culture is what has kept many of my old colleagues alone on my team 5 years, 15 and upwards of 20!

Support from management

The company culture is what has kept many of my old colleagues alone on my team 5 years, 15 and upwards of 20!

Teamwork

Pretty transparent among team, good communication for the most part.

Freedom to work independently

My first 3 years were great, no issue! The last year the helicopter/micro-managing was too much. Working remotely on occasion became an issues for our team because of paranoid/non-trusting (new) management.

Internal Communication

Weekly 1:1s great for dialogue/feedback on how to do better/what's going well

Gender Equality

Definitely! A lot of women in my larger department especially. It could use more women executives though.

Attitude towards older colleagues

All ages across the company!

Career Development

Training in my dept was limited to self-taught for most part (understaffed so lack of time to participate in days dedicated to professional development). For others in company, a lot of opportunities for manager training, other academies, etc. They encourage growth and relocation!

Overall compensation for your work

Base pay plus quarterly pay outs were fair.

Office / Work Environment

The building was always comfortable.

Environmental Friendliness

I know HQ is Platinum LEED Certified. Our desks each had a trash can/recycling combo.

Work-Life Balance

It did for a while. Then staffing and management agreeing to take on too much became an issue. This caused burn out for nearly every member of my team, which caused: low team morale, sickness, lack of balance (working weekends, recurring OT, working on PTO/vacations), employees leaving the team or company. Also, hearing middle mgmt with kids working 10-12 hour days almost every day and on weekends. Not good!

Company Image

It was a great opportunity over the years and I learned so much, gained so many new skills.

Job Security

The position and responsibilities changed a lot.

Handicapped Accessibility

Of course! Elevators and handicap accessible.

Workplace Safety

Yes! So many training videos including safety in variety of ways.

Challenging Work

The work was not too challenging. Always changing but fun to do something new every once in a while. What was challenging was the amount of projects and lack of staff to help, lowering team morale, creating burn out.

Inclusive / Diverse

Diversity of thought, diversity of ability, new ideas... those need some work!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Improvement opportunities: Work-life balance, more flexibility, ability to work remotely, listening to and valuing all ideas/feedback of employees— and actually implementing changes to better the employee experience!

What I like about the company

I worked with some amazingly talented staff who have become great friends over the years. I've added so many skills to the list and found new passions by working on various projects. The ice cream machine is a fun perk. The baristas are some of the nicest people to grab a latte or smoothie from in the morning. The fact they offer tuition remission and scholarships for teens of employees is great. The firm does so much in terms of giving back to the community: VTO (paid volunteer hours), raising money/donations for personal causes, food bank collections, charity marathons, educational events for college and elementary classrooms, matching client donations when national disasters strike, etc... the list goes on!

What I dislike about the company

Flexible work hours and work-life balance needs fixing. Understaffed in many departments. Need to hire and most importantly retain talent. If our time and talent is not respected, we will find better opportunities! Middle management needs a lot of fixing. Don't promote leaders who are not fit to lead. Most importantly, LISTEN to your team and remedy issues before morale drops to the negatives and staff quits.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Regional/Middle-Management should be more honest & transparent with staff Career development & training needs to be bolstered significantly Salaries for non-FCs needs to be market adjusted, especially in cities like San Francisco Hiring/Promotion practices should be based more on knowledge, skills and abilities of applicants vs. politics and favoritism

What I like about the company

They place a great emphasis on what you can do and not as much on where you went to school. Paid study time to go through your initial licensing as well as additional paid time for studying outside of work if a promotion requires any additional licensing. Matching 401k, generous paid time off, profit sharing and from what I hear decent health insurance (I get insurance through my partner). They are inclusive and have a good set of values that are demonstrated through how they treat their employees.

What I dislike about the company

We offer great benefits however I’d love to see us work towards more progressive benefits such as a better paternity leave benefit. As well we should offer a better transition back to work after maternity leave including part time return for women to help encourage increasing women in our industry.
