No problem with women being accepted equally and having opportunity. There is some ageism, however.
Inclusive / Diverse
Yes, very diverse. At the same time, though, the different ethnic groups form enclaves and even exclude socially by not speaking English at times. This is either not noticed or not considered problematic by management, but is not great for fostering an inclusive feeling. Clique-y.
Suggestions for improvement
- Insist that ALL employees speak English at work 100% of the time. Managers need to be more aware and on top of snuffing out clique-y (exclusion) situations among staff; should be zero tolerance for this, even from highly competent workers.
What I like about the company
They've "got their act together" -- a genuinely well-organized company. Very good at recruiting good people of all racial and ethnic groups. Nice atmosphere to come into as a new employee.
What I dislike about the company
Team leaders are too heavily trusted by managers, and while competent at their own jobs, they do not necessarily have the people-skills that managers have. There are definitely a higher-than-average number of highly competent, hard-working people with "attitude." However, I met many genuinely nice folks as well. The clique-y situation should not be tolerated, but it is seemingly ignored by management. Sometimes it felt like high school, where there are "Queen Bees" -- though a more subtle form of that.
