Company Culture

Cancerous. Outside of the cronies at the top, all that remains are over-employed lifers who think they are next to be laid off.

Support from management

Redefines cronyism. Despite three layoffs and loss of 85% of company value there have been no executive pay or staff cuts

Teamwork

Every division seems to be "in business" for themselves.

Internal Communication

Insults and disdain are communicated well.

Gender Equality

As stated earlier, mostly white male.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Most of the company is over the age of 45.

Career Development

The length of time people hold positions is indicative of the lack of advancement.

Overall compensation for your work

No bonuses or raises in two years. Now, no 401K match.

Office / Work Environment

People put signs on their doors when they take vacation lest the hall monitors assume they are stealing time away from the company.

Work-Life Balance

Half day on Friday for employees.

Job Security

Being good at your job keeps you safe.

Challenging Work

"Status quo" is innovation.

Inclusive / Diverse

Absurdly dominated by white males.

Suggestions for improvement

  • People and employees are catching onto the lack of accountability at the top. Blaming commodity prices only would suggest that executives are expendable. If the execs are performing to lofty salaries (even with a depressed market cap) then stop blaming commodity prices. You can't have it both ways.

What I like about the company

Repetitive work and lack of innovation are mentally easy.

What I dislike about the company

Too much to list.
