      The wrong way to “right size”

      Pros

      Great benefits. Flexible schedule. Relaxed dress code.

      Cons

      Company that once represented all that was great about our free market society in America has now sold themselves to India. Dishonesty by mid management and expecting that the lower level employees aren’t smart enough to catch on to their game. Using pretty words doesn’t soften the blow of losing our American jobs to a foreign country. And the audacity to ask tenured employees to train their offshore replacements, in the same breath telling us that our jobs are secure.

      Solid Company, Good Benefits, Horrible Leadership

      Pros

      Great benefits, competitive pay, solid company

      Cons

      The HR department didn't advocate for the employees. If an employee went to HR with any issue against anyone in management, HR would go straight to the director and it was a given that we would be discussing that issue in a managers meeting... and that person went on "the list." There was no such thing as privacy. If HR knows, every manager and supervisor in the building knows. If am employee wanted action, they had to call the toll free complaint line. Management hated that, but it guaranteed that an objective 3rd party would be looking into the issue and your job wouldn't be at stake. Dishonest upper management (lots of character issues), lack of concern for employees, attendance policy for hourly employees appears to be very liberal, but is in fact a trap. I once had to write up an employee for not returning to work on the 4th day after their father died. The management team had an "understood" 90 day rule. If for any reason we didn’t like you, it was almost guaranteed that you would be dismissed by day 90 of employment because "you were not a good fit." Very few opportunities for advancement. The director is an ABSOLUTE BULLY! When he was brought on, he stopped internal promotions and only hired external candidates. This went on for a couple of years until headquarters forced him to promote from within first. He was very difficult to work for, as he was extremely condescending and said on many occasions that we should just be happy to have a job because the unemployment rates were high. There was always an underlying threat when he talked to us. Within the first 2 years of himy being hired, many of our tenured hourly and management staff had been fired or quit. After another couple of years, many of us (managers/supervisors ( resigned because we couldn't take the ever increasing work hours, ever decreasing pay raises and bonuses, and his "my way or the highway" attitude.

      This a great company to work for. Great hard work and easy hours. Great benefits. Great area and driving distance from any where in Richmond.

      Management changes often and you're under different forms of supervision consistently. Weekends maybe be a con for most.
