- Trileaf Corporation27.Nov 2017
The president visits all the different offices to let everyone know how the company is doing (literally tells us how much money the company makes) but don't expect a bonus or overtime pay. The focus is always on mistakes and problem projects; times when you go above and beyond are forgotten almost instantly. It's basically impossible to build a good reputation with management since they only seem to remember negative things.
Support from management
There's no employee retention program;no matter how long you've worked here they don't try to keep you. They just don't care. If you're doing fine they'll be your best friend, but the minute you have a problem (like you're overloaded with work and are struggling to meet deadlines) they will be all over you, even if you try to communicate issues well in advance. No positive reinforcement, only punishments
Teamwork among peers is great; however, managers micromanage and have chastised people for getting help from/offering help to coworkers if you don't get the ok for every little thing from them
Freedom to work independently
If you're doing field work you HAVE to work independently, although some managers will badger you with phone calls verifying you're visiting this site or that site even though they know full well those sites are already on your list. Managers have a really bad problem with micromanaging.
Nobody reads their emails; management will ask you the same questions over and over again; managers don't communicate with each other or their employees
Casual sexism is a problem within the whole company.
Attitude towards older colleagues
We basically don't have any older colleagues since there's such an incredibly high turnover rate. They basically hire people straight out of college and then lose them when the employees get enough experience to realize this is shenanigans. No one with existing experience would come to work here, they just don't pay enough.
If management likes you you can have a good career; being male seems to help.
Overall compensation for your work
You have to have a 4 year science degree to work here and the starting salary is in the mid-30,000s
Office / Work Environment
Coworkers are great, management is toxic
Some people care, others don't
They don't care about you as an individual, they only care about the product. Overtime is required and since you're salaried you don't get paid for it. This is especially bad when you're on the road doing site visits; you can work 12 and 14 hour days and get nothing. They will run you into the ground.
They have a good reputation within the industry I think.
They don't typically fire people
I wouldn't know, to my knowledge they've never hired anyone with a handicap.
There's a pretty good Safety Handbook.
The work is interesting
Inclusive / Diverse
This is a veeery white company.
Suggestions for improvement
- Employee happiness/retention needs to be a more important part (or even A part) of this company. They don't care if you stay or go and it is extremely apparent. There's no positive reinforcement, no bonuses, nothing to inspire you to care about the company or to work hard. At the end of the day the major feeling is, Who cares?
What I like about the company
Somehow they attract a really good group of people; they just can't keep them.
What I dislike about the company
It really is a toxic work environment. The longer you're here the more of it you see, which is why there's such high turnover. Women seem to have an especially difficult time.
