Suggestions for improvement

  • Actively equal out wages instead of relying on old fashioned data to inform you when someone’s pay is below average, at the point where you’re not in range. You could be underpaid for years until you fell below the below average bucket. Higher partnership to lower level employees. In site day care. Sabbaticals. Equality in student loan reimbursement. Sick days offered voluntarily versus mandated like in AZ. Honesty is not the best mentality. Say yes and nod seems to be best payoff. Let people be people. Support them. Educate them. Encourage them. Teach them. Let failure be allowed so better van happen. Pay IT more or work on retention and/or knowledge transition.

What I like about the company

I’ve met some very amazing friends. The quick PTO accrual at high number of days is fab, but needed. You’ll do better not being opinionated.

What I dislike about the company

Quality work doesn’t get you ahead. Location (PA) and networking is necessary. They help pay off student loans but only if you are new, no help for the more tenured Crew. Mid-Management seems out of touch. Executives are strong and likeable. Slow adoption and/or complete ignorance to employee and client feedback.
