Company Culture

Fair

Support from management

Complete lack of support from management. No sales meetings. Nepotism has moved the children of upper managers into important roles they have no qualification for.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Many older managers and employees have been pushed out.

What I like about the company

Some engineers are knowledgable. Product managers are unqualified.

What I dislike about the company

Nepotism.

Company Culture

Okay, there are some hidden problem on every level of the management

Support from management

No, always there is always an hurdle in each process the immediate supervisor are the real problem there is no clear information on what your company expects from you

Freedom to work independently

No that's all I can say

Internal Communication

No they are clearly visible . It used to be as per top management but not anymore. Company was taken over 2 years ago by a very big corporate and they have a very good vision and the goals are totally outstanding but the old management people are still in the company who are taking till taking decision and spoiling the work environment

Office / Work Environment

Not good we have very small place to share and not even the managers have a closed office if an individual want to talk about his or her problem

Challenging Work

No repeated work but even if you want to work challenging you are to encouraged to do so as it has to come form supervisor and he won't encourage.

Inclusive / Diverse

No

Suggestions for improvement

  • Company which bought should take over completely and replace all top management now and run the company. I am confident the parent company higher official would do a better job than what they have now

What I like about the company

Old management was too good . I had lot of opportunity to learn , employees where friendly. I learnt a lot on manufacturing side

What I dislike about the company

New management and top officials are so bad. They really don't have a vision ahead they just want to keep people who they want and who supports the existing management more.
