    Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is not a priority at this company

    May 25, 2021 - Sustainability 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Co-workers are incredibly supportive and it can feel like a family. The company is still family-owned and they are involved and supportive. You feel like you form a connection with the Freemans.

    Cons

    Long hours and you can be on the road for weeks at a time which means you don't have much of a work-life balance. Your experience is reflective of who is your direct supervisor and if you have a bad one, God help you. HR is not helpful. Many of the company's executives and HR still are grounded in a "business as usual" boys club so their DEI awareness is lacking. Additionally, best of luck getting a promotion. They like to give you a promotion only after you've started doing your boss's boss's job.

    Needs more diversity

    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Some of the people are great. There are opportunities for travel.

    Cons

    Freeman is not very racially and ethnically diverse. They need to hire more people of color and also implement racial and ethnic diversity training to their current and future employees. This company would be great if it wasn't driven by egotistical people. There are a lot of people in management that should not be in the positions they are in. It all starts from the top. Bad management = bad employees = bad company. They do not hire or promote based on what you know or how many years you've been there, it is based on who they know and how much they like you. There is no work-life balance. The hours are extremely long and at times you are working back to back hectic days which gets very tiresome and stressful.
