Career Development

So much support to get you to the place you want to be. It's amazing!

Overall compensation for your work

Don't get me wrong, it's a great salary...

Office / Work Environment

They are moving us to a different area that is an open concept office with smaller desks and no walls. I realize they feel it's more collaborative (which we are a very collaborative culture) but I saw it is noisy and so much going on that I'll have a difficult time staying focused.

What I like about the company

The support and teamwork. Also that the upper management is immersed in the processes, actually know what is going on, and how things work. No one is afraid to make a decision or a mistake so long as the company's best interest is at heart.

What I dislike about the company

I've only been there a year but so far, nothing. I'm continuously happily surprised. Maybe the commute could be better due to having to go through the state capitol to get there. So busy.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Promotions should be granted according to qualifications alone. Discipline should be equally given. Currently one person may be harshly treated while another gets a slap on the wrist both committing the same offense.

What I like about the company

The pay is good. The benefits are high quality and do not cost an arm and a leg. All hourly employees are union. The rule is you may not eat the product but even the supervisors break that one so it is not upheld to tightly.

What I dislike about the company

Promotions are not given to the most qualified but rather to who has friends in the right place. This has been seen time after time. I know of someone being promised a management position even before he/she was hired and it happened just months after hire.
