Freedom to work independently

Larger company acquired medium but well recognized company, so big brother always overlooking your shoulder, micro-managed too much.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Invest in current and local people.

What I like about the company

Current workforce but not keen on what the proposed future workforce is supposed to be and where.

What I dislike about the company

no autonomy, no job well done, no interesting projects, wear people thin, etc...

Company Culture

Do more with fewer people and resources.

Support from management

Delivery schedule shortened weekly.

Teamwork

Difficult when losin people from teams.

Freedom to work independently

Your left to sink or swim.

Internal Communication

Lots of that, top heavy on management and meetings.

Gender Equality

Male dominant

Attitude towards older colleagues

Released from work as soon as possible.

Career Development

As hard as you want to try to get to the top.

Overall compensation for your work

It took 10 years to get to the lowest level of pay for my position, and the next 10 years to be constantly reclassified and slowly lowered.

Office / Work Environment

Share a desk with everyone, no personal items allowed.

Environmental Friendliness

They use every opportunity to recycle.

Work-Life Balance

Work, no life is allowed.

Company Image

I was proud of my work and respected for my contribution then my entire team was cut suddenly to allow Japan and Asia to take our jobs.

Job Security

There is none for US workers.

Handicapped Accessibility

In the US there has to be until a suitable replacement out of the US is found.

Workplace Safety

In the US they follow all the rules, outside US borders, whatever meets schedule and budget.

Challenging Work

Very, to the point of failure mostly.

Inclusive / Diverse

The company is moving to Japan and Asia, so yes in one direction.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Keep the intellectual property, people that made the company great.

What I like about the company

Location is easy commute.

What I dislike about the company

Culture of everyone is replacable.
