Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop doing evaluations for wage increases and then only doing flat rate raises across the board. That makes the evaluations pointless

What I like about the company

The people doing the actual work are great and generally friendly people.

What I dislike about the company

They need to pay their employees better in order to retain the good employees

Company Culture

Culture was very different and non-traditional. There are no job titles and employees are meant to guess who is responsible for various tasks or projects. The culture was very confusing and contradictory to any sort of personal accountability.

Support from management

Leadership was absent most of the time - good for the very independent employee. However; leadership would only intervene or take interest when there was an issue, then would focus on critique, criticism, and blame rather than working toward productive solutions. Absolutely no technical leadership to be found. No job titles, so anyone can assume titles at any time without the responsibility when interacting with outside individuals.

Teamwork

Very poor communication between technical teams and production / management teams. Very clique culture. Employees with more experience are assured of the much more desire-able projects.

Freedom to work independently

Employees are extremely free to perform tasks and take on responsibilities without consequence.

Internal Communication

Very poor communication between leadership and employees, when leadership was present. Leadership focused on de-constructive criticism when working on projects. Very large egos among more seasoned employees without sound knowledge or experience to substantiate it.

Office / Work Environment

Great working conditions for office employees. Production employees are worked and used up until they are driven out of the company.

Environmental Friendliness

No trash cans anywhere in the building... trying to implement some type of sustainability??? No communication about it though.

Work-Life Balance

Office employees have excellent freedom of work and work life balance.

Challenging Work

Poor individual experience... no challenge, just repetitive work with insurmountable problems.

Suggestions for improvement

  • There needs to be structured positions and ownership from the top level leadership on down to the plant floor level employees for this company to succeed long-term. The leadership is not present or chooses not to take ownership of issues or employee performance. There needs to be some level of employee accountability for any progress to be made. The lack of leadership presents a lack of expectation, lack of direction, lack of accountability, lack of support, and lack of communication. Leaders need to be present and must take ownership of their employees' performance and support their employees through managerial methods, rather than de-constructive criticism and blame. Who is driving this bus???

What I dislike about the company

Leaders' egos, poor leadership (if present) that chooses to ignore insurmountable problems rather than fix them, eventually blaming their employees when the problem persists after years and years, working employees to the breaking point, no praise or thank you from any leaders.
