- WyoTech-Laramie27.Nov 2015
What company culture. There is no time for company culture.
Support from management
Supervisors not always on the same page. Information passes down at the last minute. Staff must stop their daily routine to complete emergency tasks for upper management. Each department supervisor believes their their's is more important.
Departments work together internally, but interdepartmental teamwork is dysfunctional.
Freedom to work independently
Autonomy is good for the most part on a daily basis.
Do what I say now, not what I said yesterday. Oh, and by the way, I need it now!
Women actually get treated very well are are frequently promoted within the company.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Many older workers who are in their prime are a valuable asset to the company.
Company demands professional development, but does not offer any and employee must pay for their own development and hope to be reimbursed. Also, must work a nine hour day everyday and work on PD on your own time. Advancement in the company depends on whether or not someone in management cares for you.
Office / Work Environment
Very little appreciation. People with big egos are overpaid. Staff with exemplary work habits are paid the least. Good old boy syndrome is alive and well at WyoTech.
Work, work, work, but find your own replacement if you need time off.
Company suffered poor reputation because of former owners. It will take years for the new owner to recover credibility.
Many layoffs in the past 18 months. Hopefully, layoffs are in the past. Company expects positive growth in 2016.
Full compliant in all regard to disability act for students and staff.
Company does a great job with compliance most of the time. They are not perfect, but many in management do their very best to comply with all federal and state rules and regulations.
Very challenging work. Can be fun working with students. Can be frustrating working with co-workers.
Inclusive / Diverse
Diversity does not seem to be an issue at all.
Suggestions for improvement
- The layoff eliminated a lot of useless staff. Unfortunately, lost some good people too. Need to teach staff to be more professional and managers to leave their egos at home. A performance evaluation with a purpose would be a huge asset as the previous corporate evaluations were fluffy words and did not adequately measure a person for their job description and job duties. Fluffy words are meaningless, but are helpful if you don't intend to give raises, or promotions.
What I like about the company
Too many changes coming after new owner takeover. New corporation seems to be heading in the right direction, but must and is moving slowly to rebuild the company.
What I dislike about the company
Too many chiefs who are unprofessional. Big egos and no brains and received promotions through longevity, not ability to manage people.
