I worked at Drive Medical full-time
Free bagels on Friday. Casual Fridays. Free snacks for employees. Great coworkers. Decent benefits. Some room for growth within the company for certain departments.
Very strict policies: Employees may not be seen using their cell phones at anytime. All calls were recorded, monitored and sometimes graded. Cannot eat at your desk. You must give at least 2 weeks notice to take a day(s) off for vacation. If you're over 7 minutes late coming in, you have to stay 15 minutes after work to make up the time. Worst inclement weather policies: There were a couple of times where heavy snow was forecasted but we were still required to come in, even though we had laptops and could remotely work from home.Another time, we were held in the office during a snowstorm. Not until it became a full blown blizzard where we let out, which resulted in a 3-4 hour ride home. We also had to log in and get back to work when we got home. I'm sure many employees had accidents because of this. Compensation is on the lower side, especially for the amount of work that is required. A Company benefit that is mentioned is a profit sharing plan but the company had not declared any profits for the last 4-5 years.
Advice to Management
Treat employees as assets and have more trust in them. Lower management needs to lead their employees with encouragements rather than threats/consequences. Since the employees have the capability to work from home, don't have them battle the treacherous snowstorms to come into the office and drive back. To put the safety of the employees at risk is unacceptable.
