Suggestions for improvement

  • I would like to upgrade the computer system and software to make the office more efficient but other than that, there is nothing I would change, the company does really good by it's employees and customers.

What I like about the company

This has been a great company to work for. The ownership is very hands on and make you feel like you are a part of their family from day one. It is a small company so you get to know all the people you work with and build a bond. The work is not super challenging, but there is always something to do and opportunities to help shape policy and procedure and that is really nice.

What I dislike about the company

I wish that we had a few more perks like discounted gym memberships or more options for health care. There is not really much to complain about outside of that.

What I like about the company

Everyone is easy to work with, there is communication and a sense of a family working together. The owners do special things like Christmas dinner, gifts at valentines day and are willing to work with you when you might need time off. It is just a niceplace to work.

What I dislike about the company

There is really no part I disapprove of, management is always willing to listen, they are always open to helping and do a good job of transparancy.

Support from management

I don't think they have goals, but if they do the communication was clear. They do involve some employees in the decisions making but at the end it's the bosses decision.

Teamwork

People don't work together, they work against each other. In order to be in a good place with the boss you have to get information from each team member and first come first serve.

Freedom to work independently

Yes, every can do their thing.

Internal Communication

Yes

Gender Equality

Yes & no, it just depends.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Yes, they do consider older people. They also appreciate older people that have put their time towards the company.

Career Development

For administrative positions, no there is no career advancement. Out in the shop, I believe there is, it might take time but there is.

Overall compensation for your work

Yes

Office / Work Environment

Work Environment is laid back, and you can do your job without hesitation.

Environmental Friendliness

No, but they do recycle paper.

Work-Life Balance

They are really good about that.

Job Security

It depends on the industry and how well you do in the company. Once again, some employees there are out to get you and can prevent you from doing well.

Handicapped Accessibility

I believe so

Workplace Safety

They are pretty good about that.

Challenging Work

It could sometimes be, people make it challenging for sure. The work itself it easy.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Don't pick sides, do what is right.
  • Be punctual and make sure you go to all of their lunch ins.

What I like about the company

Bosses are nice, and attire is laid back.
