This company recently won the federal contract for Fleet and Family Support services. They came in, reduced everyone's salary, reduced paid time off to 14 days TOTAL (Both sick and vacation), took away our few 59s (when the skipper of the base sends everyone home an hour early, usually the day before a holiday) and gave us a 401k plan that they do not contribute to. We were told that even though Pres Obama has recommended that federal employees get a half a day off on Christmas Eve, this does not apply to us, so we have to stay. The morale is at an all time low since they took over and they do not care. We were told that this company will not allow us to have a Christmas luncheon, so we had to have a staff meeting during it for it to be allowed. They offer $200 per year for licensing, etc...So basically after I renew my professional license, there will be no money left for any conferences or training. Our supervisor has tried to fight for us to no avail. Literally everyone who works here is currently looking for another job and will likely leave as soon as they find something.
The worst part is that I really like my job. I love my team, I like my clients, and I like what I do. But working for a company that treats its employees so terribly is going to push me out.
Benefits, Pay, Respect, feeling valued as a team member
