Company Culture

Everyone is looking to jump ship

Support from management

Support is hard to come by when management has no clue what your job function is.

Teamwork

Environment is completely organized into silo’s impossible to penetrate

Freedom to work independently

Micro managed to the point it feels you have a babysitter, and management still doesn’t understand what you do.

Internal Communication

Only good if you have created solid relationships over the years

Gender Equality

Sure.

Attitude towards older colleagues

You are not valued at all. Most likely the first to be layed off solely to save money and at the detriment of customers.

Career Development

Good luck!

Overall compensation for your work

Good if you are hourly and willing to work tons of overtime to the point of losing track of what day it is.

Office / Work Environment

Decent, because of co-workers

Environmental Friendliness

Sure.

Work-Life Balance

Decent

Company Image

Pretty bad after 2 reverse stock splits and continued decline in stock price

Job Security

None. Layoffs happen every three months due to declining revenue.

Handicapped Accessibility

Sure.

Workplace Safety

Sure.

Challenging Work

Doing more with less people to try and save the company is always challenging

Inclusive / Diverse

Sure.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Executive management replacement.

What I like about the company

Personal relationships built over 10 years

What I dislike about the company

8-1 employee to manager ratio
