Company Culture

Most employees try to hide just to make it through the day and then the week without being let go.

Support from management

Very little to no leadership support. Training is terrible.

Teamwork

You feel like you are working on an island.

Freedom to work independently

You can do things on your own but it will come back to bite you in the end.

Internal Communication

Tremendous number of internal E-mails that can be helpful but overwhelming. Many other employees don't even take the time to respond to the E-mails you send out.

Gender Equality

In general there was no discrimination that I could tell. There was a club though and if you were not a part of it you had issues.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I feel I was let go due to age discrimination as well as many of my colleagues.

Career Development

This company flies from the seat of it's pants. On the exterior it appears that there are many programs to support employees but once you dig in you realize that there are no processes and what they do have is developed poorly.

Overall compensation for your work

Base salary is very good here. Bonus programs are usually not laid out until late in the year for bad intention on the companies part.

Office / Work Environment

Outside of being isolated the conditions are OK.

Environmental Friendliness

This topic never came up.

Work-Life Balance

The expectations from work are exhausting. Short notices are given to complete work out of the blue. Work, that if done properly, should take about 1 month is asked for in 2 - 3 days without notice.

Company Image

Most employees I talked to hated their jobs and were just trying to make it through the day.

Job Security

There is no job security as the company was not adverse to letting go large numbers of people at a time. I saw this happen many times until I was let go in a cost cutting scenario.

Handicapped Accessibility

I can't say that I have an answer for this

Workplace Safety

I did not get a feeling that this company was as safety conscience as others that I have worked at. They made a big deal out of safety but I had the impression that it was nothing more than an act.

Challenging Work

I never felt a sense of accomplishment as the majority of the work completed was ignored. I was not proud of the finished product that was offered as it fell way short of customer expectations.

Inclusive / Diverse

No opinions or ideas were supported.

Suggestions for improvement

  • There were no definitive procedures in place that have worked or had been proven. Listen to the customers and address customers issues.

What I like about the company

There was not much I cared for Univar as an employer other that the base salary.

What I dislike about the company

There were tremendous amounts of customer complaints that always fell on deaf ears.
