Suggestions for improvement

  • Upper management is mostly male and it can be difficult for women to break thru that barrier. Women work up to a certain position, then beyond that it's all male. There is an almost 'boys club' mentality in some departments. I've seen people rewarded which most feel are not that deserving. There have been staffing changes in the past and I've seen some 'fresh' perspective come in from time to time.

What I like about the company

I've worked for some great people, which makes a big difference. I've also worked hard to stand out from my peers and been promoted. I then decided that I wanted to another position and taught myself some new skills with help from others in the company. I was then awarded another position in a new department where I am today. There has been a lot of changes since I've started but I feel they've improved the company greatly.

What I dislike about the company

We need a new operating system, which is in the works. We manage data almost entirely in Excel when there are some great resources available.
