Company Culture

Supervisor looked out for himself at cost of others. Many management were the same.

Support from management

Racism to non Indian. Will not accept advice or common sense corrective action because they believe they are always right o matter how bad things get.

Teamwork

Lower level teamwork yes. Going up the chain or having chain involvement destroys it.

Freedom to work independently

Started rough, but the workers tried to be fair.

Internal Communication

Lack of communications.

Gender Equality

Not so much sexist as racist.

Attitude towards older colleagues

There are long term employees who have it good with the owner. They started the company and have rare skills.

Career Development

Not sure if I stepped forward or backwards. Debatable.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay was low, but overtime made up for some even though we had no life.

Office / Work Environment

Filthy, poor housekeeping from neighbors work areas.

Environmental Friendliness

Did enough to avoid repercussions.

Work-Life Balance

Last minute notice was the norm. Worked lots of hours to satisfy backlogs. Workers rescheduled to work during company party they paid to attend at short notice.

Company Image

Everyone stuck there is looking for something better except for the first employees and management.

Job Security

They need people, but work gets slow a d hours are cut.

Handicapped Accessibility

Some places, but limited. Not a good place to work for those with needs.

Workplace Safety

A lot of avoidable accidents happen. I was lucky, but there were more close calls than I was comfortable with.

Challenging Work

Satisfied, but there were better ways to accomplish tasks.

Inclusive / Diverse

Not really unless you are related to the owner.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Reduce favortism and make certain everyone is qualified for the jobs they hold. Listen and apply the good advice of common sense workers.

What I like about the company

Good product line with demand from clients.

What I dislike about the company

Management treating employees like garbage.
