Imagine the best deck you’ve ever seen. Beautiful, evocative, emotive full bleed imagery. The copy is sharp, funny in places, emotional in places, but always insightful and thoughtprovoking. Imagine your partner or person you’ve been seeing creates this deck to break it off with you. How do you feel?

    Terrible culture

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Remote work Flexibility Decent benefits

    Cons

    Terribly run organization. A lot of big egos at the management level without any self awareness. The founders have no experience being leaders and are running the culture and work environment into the ground. Extremely immature behavior exhibited in meetings where yelling at people is accepted and being disagreeable is rewarded. As long as the founders are running the show especially in the non tech departments this company has very little hope of being successful.

    Moving in correct direction

    Aug 7, 2020 - Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Good engineering team - Hard work gets recognized quickly - Navigating through COVID-19 really well; which validates resilient business - Supportive management - Acknowledging mistake and moving in the right direction quickly

    Cons

    Recently there were few layoffs; mostly in sales due to COVID-19 related impact. Initially, I was very upset about it. But then looking around, I realized it was a necessary action. It was probably a little harsher but it's very hard to estimate the impact of something like COVID-19; which is a once in a decade event. Company is doing much better than I initially though it would do in these times.

    Like most companies during covid KT did have to have a reduction of force and some key people were impacted. Currently employees need to take on additional roles to make up for those roles that were impacted.

In construction, safety is priority #1 - for workers, for management, and for customers. Companies risk injuries, project shutdowns, legal fees, and reduced customer confidence without a comprehensive safety program. For a company like Rosendin, which has 7,000 workers traveling to and from hundreds of job sites across the U.S., safety wasn’t simple. Check out how Motive helped Rosendin prevent accidents and provide support after an incident takes place with the Motive Driver Safety Solution and reduce fuel waste using the Vehicle Gateway to save money and help the environment.
