Reviews

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to treat you better a d train you better when you are first hired. They need a management team that actually has management skills and are professional.

What I like about the company

It pays the bills. I met nice people at the location I work at.so far the hours work for me. The job itself is not too difficult.

What I dislike about the company

Management is horrible. The training is horrible. They pick their favorites.they dont care about your concerns. They treat the employees like puppets.

Company Culture

It's dog eat dog, no leadership support as no one is trained and there are no standards of behavior it policies

Freedom to work independently

None

Internal Communication

Communication is poor and help in executive management only

Gender Equality

Men and children of owners are promoted no one else. Raises are rare, managers pick favorites

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older employees are laid off as soon as possible depriving younger staff the benefit of their experience

Environmental Friendliness

Absolutely none

Work-Life Balance

Work life balance is promised however employees who try it are punished

Company Image

Image of a barely operational company who cannot retain good staff from project to project

Inclusive / Diverse

None and never

Suggestions for improvement

  • Structure, written policy and procedures that can't be altered by management, replace HR who are in owners pocket and do not advocate for employees. Offer exposure and travel as learning opportunities.

What I dislike about the company

Those in higher positions are all independently wealthy without any real-world immersion. Favoritism runs rampant. Little or no trainings. No manager trainings or industry trai ings
