Suggestions for improvement

  • The culture has to change. The company is profitable, but it can do so much better. The change has to be seen at the leadership level.

What I like about the company

Lower management and the workers in general are great to work with.

What I dislike about the company

There is are many people trying to climb the corporate ladder that just execute what they are told and never challenge the direction. Many people are more interested in make sure they are not to blame than finding a solution.

Company Culture

The company culture is not the best

Suggestions for improvement

  • Policies need to be consistent throughout the company, departments should not get to pick and choose what is being enforced. The company needs to start appealing to the workforce coming in. Being in a trendy area and cutting salaries, they need to appeal

What I like about the company

I have met many people that truely care to help others in their career. I have gained the knowledge necessary to do well in my current position and above

What I dislike about the company

You must know someone that works there to get in most times. And depending on who it is that you know, decides where you start. I wish we would give everyone a fair shot

It was okay.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would have valued the long term employees more.

What I like about the company

I like working there. It was conveniently located and the people who worked there, for the most part were nice people and easy to get along with. My manager was a good guy who had no problem giving time off if you needed it. Unfortunately we were sold

What I dislike about the company

They often hired unqualified and low class temporary workers during periods of high volume work load. It created a lot of strife during those periods.
