    Revolving door of temps creates poor accountability

    I worked at Meyer Corporation U.S. as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Kind coworkers who genuinely want to do a good job. Respectable product line. Good discounts.

    Cons

    I had a terrible experience working here. On at least two occasions I was blamed for the mistakes of others even though I had proof that they were not my own. On a few occasions I tried going the extra mile to do a good job and got my hand slapped instead. Management was rude and inconsistent. There were a lot of temps around; they were treated as disposable, no matter how hard or well they worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company isn't big enough to warrant some of the sweeping policies that are expected to be heeded with no exceptions allowed; don't be corporate just for the sake of it. Reward good work instead of punishing those who go the extra mile. Stop relying on temps to do high-level work.

    Pros

    Benifits are good. Pay is ok.

    Cons

    Unless you are one of the managers favorites, you wont get promoted even if you are completely compotent. Almost like being in High School with all of the clicks. No windows at all in the office so it is like being in jail. They will work you like a dog and when someone leaves in your department they dont backfill the position leaving more work for you. Come review time dont get your hopes up for a nice raise cause you wont get one. No incentives to perform. Some people who work there are actually working hard and giving Meyer 100% but there are way too many who aren't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote those that are compotent instead of the most popular ones. Someone needs to take a good look at the moral of the employees and do something about it. Also take a very close look at those getting promoted. They arent setting a good example. If you have rules like a dress code you need to inforce them with everyone. There seems to be several "golden children" who can do no wrong and get away with things that most of us would never even think of doing. This give those of us who work our butts off a bad taste in our mouth. It also makes Management look stupid and incompotent.
