I have been working at Uniek full-time (More than 5 years)
The owner and upper management really care for the employees. Diversifying the product portfolio is taking the business in the right direction for success. The company has enjoyed great success in the past, rallied through the Great Recession, and will enjoy success in the future.
The company is in a situation where there is a dwindling market for its core product. To address this, the company is actively expanding its product portfolio. As a result of the dwindling market, staff has been reduced significantly and salaries have remained stagnant for a few years. Due to the expansion of the product portfolio there is a light at the end of the tunnel and hiring has picked back up this year.
Advice to Management
Company is still a little top-heavy and focuses too much on marketing.

- How would one change the culture? 1 Answer
Two rounds of negotiation, 80% of requests met upon arrival.
