Sad, very unhappy people.
Support from management
No, more like a dictatorship.
So do, most play the blame game. But they all are afraid of loosing their jobs constantly.
Freedom to work independently
Yes, but full and critical review is required weekly by the dictator.
Daily admin meetings about new orders. No info on results or successes on past orders and shipments.
No and ofter reminded of that.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Only because many products are outdated and only the older colleagues had the knowledge, that is no longer taught today.
No real advancement offered. The people in charge have been there over 30 years and do not plan on changing things.
Overall compensation for your work
Salary was OK for a beginning, but no increase in the future was offered.
Office / Work Environment
Took over a month to get my computer and email address. Ventilation is poor, electronic soldering and painting in building effects office area. Most suffer daily, company supplies Allergy pills. 4 people in one office and all need allergy pills daily.
Paper only. Electronic parts and steel through away.
Extra hours required if you want your job. But no time clock and no extra pay.
I was because it is a dying art in the US. But the Chinese are now offering the same old school products.
Weekly you were warned you could be eliminated. Many people were. Low sales was the reason given. But we were in production and not sales.
No, poor ventilation for soldering and painting. Should be inspected by OSHA. Even fumes entered the admin. office area. No safety training.
Challenging because the position had been empty for 4 years. Only a few people hired once a year, short time at inventory time. I was very proud of my production, cut costs, reduced inventory by 25%, when required to reduce by 10% in order to keep my job. Still laid off 2 days before 90 days. I think they do this yearly, found notes in files from others with same info. No training on specialized parts, I was fortunate that I have experience in specialized electronic parts.
Inclusive / Diverse
Not at all, when I asked about where a part was used I was told "you don't need to know that". But later that changed and they realized the need to know to keep production on time and going well.
Suggestions for improvement
- Visit by surprise or consider a "secret shopper" style employee.
- Clean up the air in the place.
