Great benefits but no advancement
Insurance Specialist (Current Employee) – Mankato, MN – October 4, 2016
This company is management-driven. The employees are there to make the managers look good, at any expense to the employees. This may include freezing PTO for a department, even when a medical test is warranted or an employee's child is getting married in another state. No time off, even if there are over two weeks banked due to making up time before the freeze. If an employee thinks they are doing all the right things for the company, they will not be rewarded. As far as advancement, they claim to have a program that helps employees advance, but even my manager at one time told me nothing is done about it. It's only there to look good. They hire management with no experience then look surprised when they learn the manager isn't successful. To make matters more confusing, they just keep going on the same way, not making any improvements. Management is immune to needing to get their work up to par, but the employees below them are given few chances. Maybe other departments are fun, but not mine.
Benefits excellent, if you are allowed to use them
Advancement almost impossible, management doesn't listen to suggestions
