Suggestions for improvement

  • we don’t hire proactively enough. It seems we wait until everyone is overloaded and overwhelmed before hiring people though we are told to hire before we get into that position.

What I like about the company

Our office is always working together. We enjoy working with each other and shows at employee gatherings when all the departments come together.

What I dislike about the company

Imbalance of work loads can occur. Some slack and it seems to be okay while others are working like crazy. Seems though eventually it pays off but frustrating watching it happen and waiting for your day.

  • Mentioned in the last question, definitely please stop expecting people to work over 40 hours a week, that is not healthy and is not the norm in other countries with higher happiness index and less heart attacks per capita! Hire part time work or interns to help out with overload instead of expecting existing management, project managers, field staff, etc. to work 12 hours a day. Also they really need to look into improving racial diversity.

What I like about the company

Our company participates in many local charity and fundraising events, like golf games, Habitat for Humanity, Canstruction for the food bank, Toys for Tots, adopt a family programs around the holidays, etc. They also give grants to local organizations which is pretty cool, and scholarships to employees' children. The safety culture can be a little too much at times but it is nice to know they care about their employees' safety and wellbeing and want everyone to go home safely at the end of the day. Generally a pretty laid back group of employees, although at the corporate level things can get a little stuffy. But at the local offices people are pretty cool. Good room for growth and lots of opportunity to move jobs, locations, flexible hours, etc.

What I dislike about the company

At least at my local office, there is not a lot of racial diversity. It's pretty white washed. Seems to be better at offices in other parts of the country. Also it's somewhat male skewed, especially for the more technical jobs. They also have way too many meetings about financials and other stuff that most of the workers don't care about. And then they yell at us for not meeting chargeability goals, it's like hello you make us go to all these meetings instead of working on projects. The work-home balance leaves something to be desired. A lot of people work 60 hour weeks and act like it's totally normal and healthy, and then expect others to do the same. Bonuses are based on if you average over 44 hours a week. No thanks! Would rather have the extra time to spend with my family. Can't you hire more people to pick up the extra work instead of expecting existing employees to sacrifice their free time and work themselves into an early heart attack?
