Reviews

Company Culture

I think it is a great way to bond but, not everyday you will find good people to work with. My team is very good we work together to monitor everything that goes on in our organization.

Support from management

Definitely everyone works together when there is a big problem and I am mainly the one trying to teach

Teamwork

Yes, they welcome us every morning I really appreciate what employers did for us.

Freedom to work independently

Yeah I think companies were to lenient with that. I think we should have a limit

Internal Communication

It wade great everything really

Gender Equality

I don't really know but from what I saw yes

Attitude towards older colleagues

Yes indeed have them more since their knowledge.

Career Development

There are many interns I have to teach everyday

Overall compensation for your work

I sometimes do to much for to little

Office / Work Environment

Yes it very comfortable and suit

Environmental Friendliness

I saw that they didn't really care but, sometimes when there was a big deal

Work-Life Balance

Yes although sometimes I have to stay late to fix something I really do think it is balanced

Company Image

Job Security

Handicapped Accessibility

Workplace Safety

Yes it is very hard to have a bad accident there.

Challenging Work

It wasn't that challenging but, sometimes there would be difficulties that would take a wh

Inclusive / Diverse

Yes, employees have different opinions which make it better since we can solve the problem in many different ways

Suggestions for improvement

  • O would change being able to work by ourself. Also I would provide other benefits for the employees that work their. It is a very tiring job so I expect more perks.

What I like about the company

I had a very great time at the university it was very fun learning to do all these great things. At first I didn't know how to do any of these but, now I know that my job is very important to everyone around me. When I first started I was shy and not open to others. I did my job well but didn't really socialize. After a while my partner needed help on a technical problem she couldn't figure out so I pitched in. I helped her solve the problem and after that I became more involved.

What I dislike about the company

I don't really like that we can hang around by ourself. It is great and awesome actually but, we could just not do anything and still get payed. So I want them to monitor everyone.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The company could compensate non-managerial staff better and better recognize the reasonable needs of excellent employees.

What I like about the company

My various roles have given me a variety of experiences that strengthen my prospects for better jobs. I have never worked in a hostile work environment and enjoy the holidays that the company honors.

What I dislike about the company

I'd advise the company to pay its staff at least the market rate for a person's education and experience or at least don't pay someone much less than their predecessor for doing mostly the same work. I'd advise the company to allow employees to telecommute if their job doesn't require much interaction with people that don't work for the company.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I answered that a little on the previous question. Departments should have more autonomy, but also should work together better

What I like about the company

I have some good friends there who also are treated poorly

What I dislike about the company

Keep some oversight, but remove much of the management interference. Pay employees better. Give them more say in how things are run

  • I would improve communication among departmemts

What I like about the company

My directors are very supportive and defend our rights against management. It's nice to know that we have that support.

What I dislike about the company

I wish the focus was more on retention of current students rather than the growth of new students, although I believe the focus will shift once goals are met.

  • I think the overall culture and environment that I work in is wonderful and I wouldn't change a thing.

What I like about the company

I have really enjoyed my time working here at The University of Alabama. My specific department is really close and like a little work family. We support each other, help each other with problems, and I feel like my voice is heard and taken seriously. Everyone I have had the opportunity to work with, even from other departments and organizations within the university, has been extremely pleasant and wonderful. Everyone seems to enjoy working here and is very professional. I also feel very relaxed in my work environment.

What I dislike about the company

There is nothing that I have come to notice about the university that I so far disapprove of. If I had to say anything, is that they distribute a little too much paper mail that I find wasteful when it could have been sent thorough email.
