Company Culture

Top heavy management where employees are treated as necessary evils. Filled with negative reinforcement

Gender Equality

Yes, they do a good job in that regard

Attitude towards older colleagues

As with gender, they do a fairly good job at this as well

Career Development

Training for further advancement is non existent. Management tends to hold onto their positions and creates an atmosphere where they underlings are kept in their positions

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation was fair in regards to responsibilities

Environmental Friendliness

There is, but the company puts more material into landfills than any other company I've worked for

Company Image

At the beginning, yes, then the company seemed to move from manufacturing as a priority to providing upper management a safe haven

Job Security

over 150 people were laid off in April of 2017

Inclusive / Diverse

Unfortunately, the company caters to management and direction is one way, top down

Suggestions for improvement

  • Maybe management can take a hard look at what is going on with the morale of their employees. Bridging the divide between the two is necessary if they are to achieve previous status of a place people want to work at

What I like about the company

Co-employees were dedicated and a pleasure to work with

What I dislike about the company

Management and layers of MGMT grew to a point where underlings were being treated like mushrooms. There was no longer a sense of appreciation from top down. Communication became one way from top down.

Workplace Safety

production workers are train by management to have low self esteem, not a single African American will make it to HR or promoted to the management team no matter your level of education they will keep you down until you get discourage and leave. There is no future at Velcro for black people.

Inclusive / Diverse

Prison line production is how I describe the work environment.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Welcoming diversity not just tolerated them.

What I like about the company

Nothing after I find out what they are all about.

What I dislike about the company

EVERYTHING except of some of my co-worker
