For a lont=g time there wasn't much diversity in my department but that has slightly improved recently.
Support from management
I don't have many complaints in this area.
I think there is room for improvement in this area because things can be so chaotic at times that it can cause issues between co-workers.
Freedom to work independently
This is dependent on your position. There is independence for some but there is a bit of micro managing for others.
We receive e-mails on a regular basis keeping us abreast of pertinent information so I think the communication is fair.
From my point of view, women are treated in the same manner as men within the company.
Attitude towards older colleagues
I am in this age range and feel things are fair in this area.
I really haven't seen room for growth in my position in several years.
Overall compensation for your work
I definitely have issues with my pay. The raises I receive yearly don't help much with the constant increase of the cost of living.
Office / Work Environment
Things are ok in this area but could be improved upon. I've had issues with the temperature of the office I work in for years and would really like to be in a more spacious environment.
Recycling bins are plentiful in the workplace.
Overtime or work on weekends is never required so there is a very good Work-life balance
Proud would be a bit of a stretch. I am content for the most part but would work elsewhere without hesitation if I had the opportunity.
Because of how sufficient I do my work and, because the pay isn't great, there isn't much of a reason for me to be replaced.
There are sufficient facilities for the handicap but some of the push pads take multiple presses to open doors.
I have no complaints about safety in the workplace.
The work is challenging depending on the number of people I come into contact with on a given day.
Inclusive / Diverse
Diversity can be improved upon but it is taking a turn for the better.
Suggestions for improvement
- I think my company is more than fair in terms of hiring women but I don't think they are as fair when it comes to hiring African Americans. And when they do, in some cases, they are placed in positions with not much room for advancement. This is my biggest criticism and the thing I would like to see improvement on the most.
What I like about the company
The positive personal experiences working for this company would be making several friends throughout the years. The ability to ride shuttle buses on the campus for free because it's such a large campus. Feeling secure in my position is a definite positive.
What I dislike about the company
I would like to see more employees having their own offices and not having to share work spaces with others. This makes for a more pleasant day and people can get their work done more comfortably. I would like to see more diversity, especially, the hiring of more African Americans. The lack of African American employees in my department has stood out for a long time. I would like to see tenured employees receive more opportunities for raises and better positions.
