Suggestions for improvement

  • Things may have gotten better since I left over a year ago but my suggestions, based on when I was there, are to allow people to work remotely if they have a job that doesn't require them to be in the office, give working parents extra time off when their children are sick, more PTO in general, make current technology (software and hardware) more of a priority, and offer a more flexible working schedule unless the position requires that the employee work certain hours, such as taking customer service calls.

What I like about the company

I enjoyed the my coworkers. Just about everyone there was very nice. My manager didn't micromanage but trusted that I would do my job without much guidance. The building itself was nice and I enjoyed the workout facilities in the office. I think my favorite thing about working there was how much I learned - I was given more and more responsibilities during my time there and it helped me grow a lot. Also, the 401k and health care benefits were pretty good.

What I dislike about the company

I really disliked how much one person in HR micromanaged. She tried to manage employees from other departments instead of trusting that those managers were able to do it properly. They had a very outdated view on things such as working remotely and flexible hours, and they were not very understand of issues that arise from being a working parent. I also was underpaid for my position, compared to other companies in the area. My job evolved while I was there and my responsibilities greatly increased and, even though my manager requested a pay increase and new title to match my position multiple times, his manager and HR refused. I know it was partly because the company was merging with another company and they didn't want to rock the boat during that time, but it really made me feel very unappreciated and undervalued.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better communication and attitudes between sites, and a more structured management team.

What I like about the company

The environment at the office is laid back and pretty casual, and good people work there. I have made friends and enjoy the company as I work.

What I dislike about the company

Employees aren't always made to feel that they are valued. Especially the lower on the totem pole your position is.
