Company Culture

This is not corporate America, this is a small company where there is some level of socialization and personal support.

Support from management

I've had many personal issues and emergencies where I got genuine concern and support. As for my work itself, I've had not only encouragement but understanding when things didn't go right and opportunities to correct them, rather than an old school lashing.

Freedom to work independently

I think we all pretty much do our own thing as long as the results are good.

Gender Equality

Strong equality culture here and definitely a culture that promotes job growth regardless of gender, race or religion.

Attitude towards older colleagues

We have employees of all ages here, including older employees. Everyone has an opportunity here.

Career Development

I grew in my role. I was very young when I came here and wasn't ready to take the position offered. My boss saw potential for me, so created a lower position for me and let me grow into the position that I'm in now, the position originally advertises. They can't always do that, but good people are groomed to do good things here.

Work-Life Balance

My boss values work-life highly. When my child was born, she was flexible about me getting in a little later to help my wife with our child in the mornings.

Company Image

I think the people who really know what we're all about respect the way we do things here.

Job Security

I've been here almost 12 years, so...

Inclusive / Diverse

There are people from many ethnic and religious backgrounds here.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I'd love to have casual attire daily instead of just Fridays, but casual Fridays are still great. We have an excellent health plan but I'd love to see improvements in some of our other benefits, but this is not a big enough issue for me to be unhappy.

What I like about the company

It's a small company culture. We know each other, sometimes we're as much friends as coworkers. I have grown with this company for nearly 12 years, and at The Samia Copanies LLC, you get what you give, so my loyalty to the company has been rewarded. We also have an outstanding health plan and a generous bonus in the fall. We have lots of fun social events - some during office hours, some after - for the employees to just have fun together. As I said earlier, when my wife and I had our child, my boss was flexible about working hours, within reason, so that I could help my wife with our child in the mornings. On Fridays, we do casual Friday, which I love.

What I dislike about the company

I really don't. We all have our bad days here like any job, but for the most part, I'm too happy here for it to be easy for me to list things I truly dislike here.
