Some front line employees exemplify what the company considers it's "culture". You do have to drink the kool aid if you want to stay employed there.
Support from management
Management touts their Great Place to Work award from two years ago, but behind the scenes it's a different story. The say they want to continue improving and that they want to hear what the employees have to say, but in reality they're just looking for someone to confirm what they think.
Front line employees help each other out however they can. Management just looks out for themselves.
Freedom to work independently
You're constantly micromanged and the number of meeting that you have to attend is counterproductive.
Management does not have a clue what is going on.
Heavily slanted to females. Males do not have a lot of growth potential.
Attitude towards older colleagues
If you're not a yes man/woman, then forget about moving up in this company.
Overall compensation for your work
They claim to have adjusted pay scales. I know of two or three employees that have had their payscales disclosed to them, yet they're not paid within that scale.
Office / Work Environment
Keep your opinions to yourself. If your thoughts challenge the status quo and you voice them, you'll be tagged as "hypercritical" and you should just start looking for another job before you're fired.
They try their hardest to project a happy and fun workplace, but that's not what goes on there.
High turn around, ask HR. Once they decide that you "don't fit the culture" they all of a sudden start "documenting" everything and build a case to fire you so that they don't have to pay for wrongful termination. I've seen people fired for "performance" after they've received an award from their manager just a couple weeks prior.
Seems fine to me.
It's very challenging because they're constantly "restructuring" and there's too many meetings for you to get anything done.
Inclusive / Diverse
It's very cliquey. There's about five people that don't do anything there, but they've been there from the start so it doesn't matter.
Suggestions for improvement
- Start listening to your employees. Don't just assume something is the problem and then just looks for something to confirm you bias, be open minded. The owners (not the team members) need a reality check. They're very sheltered by mid-level management as to what is actually happening on the floor so that mid-level management doesn't look bad. Stop giving so much power to new managers. You shouldn't be able to fire someone within your first 90 days when that employee has no prior issues.
What I like about the company
The front line employees, mostly, are genuine and great people to work with.
What I dislike about the company
They talk a great talk, but don't walk the walk. The senior leadership is just selling the company off the employees because they want out, but they spin it as a perk to the employees, yet they won't disclose what the company was even appraised out for the initial 1/3 buy out.
