Set up to fail from day 1

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Plymouth, MN

ProsFree water, free coffee, free popcorn at 3 pm, the building has been recently updated and expanded. If you happen to be related to someone in upper management you can pretty much not work all day and not get fired.

ConsYou're told you can be fired on the spot if Chuck Barry doen't like what you wear, and that as a department you are being "watched" by the higher ups. Anyone could make a claim against you and management would believe it and act on it, yet you're never told who has made the claim, new hires have absolutely no credibility. New hires are held to a different set of rules than existing employees, if you point that out, you will be told you are behaving like a 7th grader and they will find a reason to place a disciplinary action against you. Extremely unprofessional management in the OEM department and training is non-existent to poor and depends on the teaching ability of existing employees who seem offended to be sharing the same air with you. Do as I say and not as I do is the norm. If you happen to be related to someone in upper management you can pretty much not work all day and not get fired (nepotism). Army building, backstabbing, throwing people under the bus and constant whispering and gossiping is common. There is no positive interaction from management, only negative. The computer systems are redundant, inefficient, and archaic. You’re not given the tools you need to do the job, too few dependable copy machines and printers.

It is an extremely toxic and unprofessional environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the policy where new hires can't transfer within 6 months of their employment

Get an electronic in/out board

Train managers to treat their employess with respect and dignity and give positive feedback from time to time instead of only negative. Train them to treat new hires with the same respect as existing employees. Give special training to new managers who will be managing their former co-workers.

Let all current employees give anonymous feedback about their positions, supervisors and co-workers, call it opportunities to improve your work environment.

Provide training to employees on how to behave like adults and work out their differences instead of allowing army building, back stabbing, gossipping and childish behavior. Let it be known that army building, back stabbing, gossippping and childish behavior at work will not be tolerated and then fire those who don't comply.

Time clocks don't belong in an office, make the managers responsible for their employees time

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
