anonymous (Former Employee) – Vermont – February 12, 2016
The work / life balance is horrendous, the company is proud of the hectic culture. You will work your fingers to the bone, and its expected, all while everyone around you is either leaving, or getting laid off. The turn over rate is astronomical, if you work for the company for more then 3 years, you've been there longer then 50% of the company. dozens and dozens of people leave every year, from CFO's, VP's, directors, engineers, to operations personnel. This leads to you constantly working on other responsibilities, reinventing the wheel, and being over worked, all while you don't know if a senior leader has come in on a bad day and you're fired. With this company you will never know if your job is secure, so if you have a family, financial responsibilities, like every other person in the world, you will worry day in and day out, and they honestly don't care. Salaries never change, hardly any raises, no matching 401K, nothing goes to employees, because if it did, that would mean the company and its leadership actually cared for the employee's and the above paragraph shouldn't apply. Overall horrible experience, and i would venture that at least 50 - 75% of the company feels the exact same way.
-Worked 3rd Shift -No real management support (Intern to no manager) -Managers more worried about writing up people for being "late" from breaks by minutes than overall productivity and morale. -Benefits OK but low bonus' -Pay low for responsibilities -No recognition for suggestions to better production or company. -Manager used vulgar language and approached me in a intimidating manner during crossover meeting. I reported actions by manager and was fired by HR because I didn't communicate enough information to team. Manager was an ex-MP in Army and worked by intimidation. Heard he was fired by GMCR for same thing.
