    Not a place for Growth /Retirement

    May 12, 2022 - Building Enclosures 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You get to work remotely, and team work was great within the group.

    Cons

    Old systems, poor communication across all departments, no real trainers (even the veterans still get lost) lots of repetitive and redundant work, pay isn't competitive, poor insurance and benefits compared to average companies, no growth within the company (promotions are done secretively and not openly to allow internal people to apply) , and the culture was toxic -not enough diversity in leadership, discrimination among leaders, not paid commission for doing sales duties, and high turnover rate among higher ups so leadership morale is low with inconsistent managers. *Most people quit within 6 months*

    Upper management solutions for their downfalls is for middle management and frontline workers to solve the problems they create. A lot of slacks and ties not very many boots and jeans.
