Company Culture

If you do not speak Spanish, you are an outsider. Management will talk about you in a meeting with you sitting there.

Support from management

Management goes so far as to read your emails with out telling the employee. They want to find someone to blame. That is their "root cause analysis.

Teamwork

Team is a four letter word.

Freedom to work independently

Their way only. If your try to discuss, you are labeled argumentative.

Internal Communication

Management acts like you are transparent with employee but this is far from the truth.

Gender Equality

They do hire women

Attitude towards older colleagues

Since the turn over is high, they do have a lot of younger employees

Overall compensation for your work

Salary employees that work too many hours but have no compensation.

Office / Work Environment

The office is oil and out of date. The cram too many people in small offices. No privacy, too noisy.

Environmental Friendliness

Some employee are every friendly and try to get along with each other. It truly is a management issue at this company. But even if you are hired to help change things. It will not happen.

Work-Life Balance

I was a salary employee for a big rework project. For 2 1/2 months I worked nights and weekend. When I asked for 2 days out, when the project was done, I was told if I could the 2 days with out pay, I would be fired.

Job Security

64 % turn over says a lot

Workplace Safety

Joke. OSHA should shut this place down.

Challenging Work

The company is a challenging. Most just want out

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get rid of the upper management and hire people that really know how to manage

What I like about the company

Three people I worked with I stayed 6 months to try to find a way to make it better for them.

What I dislike about the company

Management was and is a joke.

Company Culture

They do not care about you and let you know that you can easily be replaced

Support from management

There is no support from management

Teamwork

No team effort here. Everyone is out for themselves

Attitude towards older colleagues

They seem to only hire young people who are not qualified for the job

Career Development

This place is a dead end

Overall compensation for your work

I have been working here almost 3 years and have not received a raise, and believe me I have asked

Company Image

So embarrassed the management here likes to sleep with the employees.

Handicapped Accessibility

No, There are no handicap bathrooms and I have a disability that they have yet to address

Workplace Safety

There is no fire escape plan, no water sprinkler in side the building, they lock employees inside the building to keep the late employees from coming inside
