Suggestions for improvement

  • I would encourage them to have more full time employees and not so many contract workers. It tends to affect the moral at times because although we are all treated fairly the benefits such as paid holidays just aren't there for them which makes that time of the year difficult.

What I like about the company

Diversity is very important to me and I feel as though I'm supported by management. The company cares and invests time in the development of each individual if they want to further their careers. I have had many opportunities to acquire new skills and put them to use.

What I dislike about the company

Some of the people I work with prefer to act as though we are back in high school and do a lot of he said she said. Management does not always handle it appropriately and allows it to happen.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would improve the quality of the hiring process. Most employees are hired because of relationships rather than skill but are hired to work in advanced positions that require advanced skills that they do not possess. The work required to ensure business/co tracting is properly handled is mostly done by daughters/wives/general family members of employees but the skill is missing for that position so the employee struggles to get the job done. There are very minimal set policies & procedures for employees to follow. The structure is lacking consistency and self-management tools.

What I like about the company

I love the company events. They are always fun and everyone has a great time. The CEO is a really amazing person.

What I dislike about the company

There are quite a few racist employees who have no problem making those of other races feel uncomfortable and unaccepted. The company would do well to hire more from a diverse group of applicants.
