Company Culture

They're all about making money.

Support from management

Managers are too busy playing their phones, or in the office

Teamwork

They let everyone play on their phones all day. Customer service is non existent.

Freedom to work independently

Gotta follow "umami" culture

Internal Communication

Emails always being sent to wrong people, constantly calling wrong units.

Gender Equality

Better have an open mind, otherwise you're a goner

Attitude towards older colleagues

All young people whose parents didn't teach them respect, or to respect people who have been in the industry for a long time

Career Development

Trainers are not very good

Overall compensation for your work

Very cheap

Office / Work Environment

If your a manager you spend most of the day there

Environmental Friendliness

They try

Work-Life Balance

If management knew how to make a schedule it would be great

Company Image

Try to be hip and up to date

Job Security

Don't make a mistake, doesn't matter how long you've been there

Workplace Safety

It's hard to keep old equipment going. Floors are always greasy.

Challenging Work

It's only challenging because of the idiots who understaff.

Inclusive / Diverse

They tend to hire young idiots

Suggestions for improvement

  • Have better company guidelines. More professional environment

What I like about the company

Free meals

What I dislike about the company

The staffing, and management. The lack of quality training. The lack of communication. The constant back stabbing.
