Suggestions for improvement

  • Definitely more meetings between management and employees if there is conflicting issues in regards to work and clients. There seems to be a lot of discussion between only certain people, instead of everyone coming together to resolve issues that might come up.

What I like about the company

Working hard is absolutely recognized. I was in a call center position for nearly 3 years, and when I transferred to another client supportive position the company offered me an even higher position within another year without me applying as they thought I was suited for the job.

What I dislike about the company

There seems to be some disagreements on particular responsibilities that positions hold, and I think that upper management should be meeting more frequently to hear from their employees about concerns.

Company Culture

Slipping as they redefine their business under the 3rd generation leadership.

Support from management

Their focus is on strong survey scores and protecting their job rather than employee growth and doing the right thing for the client.

Teamwork

Not great as middle managers fight to protect their jobs rather than encourage employee growth.

Freedom to work independently

Spreadsheet tracking to death!

Internal Communication

Often lacking and unclear. This is often due to strength lacking in middle management.

Gender Equality

Women are in high level positions, throughout organization. Wheels excels here.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Other than not expecting the older, long term employees to grow and change things up to improve processes there isn't an issue.

Work-Life Balance

expectation - unspoken - is to work on vacation, weekends and while ill. If you are not careful you end up working 24/7

Inclusive / Diverse

mostly white, little diversity in other roles outside of the call center.
