Interesting work, but very negative work environment
Operations (Current Employee) – Urbandale, IA – July 25, 2018
I have worked here for several years in several different departments, and if you are not one of the Chosen Ones, you will go nowhere in this company. Management does not support staff enough, and high level jobs are just created for certain people without giving others who are just as qualified the opportunity to apply.
Most departments are constantly overworked, and rude behavior and getting publicly chewed out for small mistakes is almost a daily occurrence. Health benefits are too expensive and there is zero maternity/family leave. You get one large bank of PTO and no sick or bereavement leave.

New drive and vision, they've addressed the union side and forgot their own. Benefits are slowly being drained, a new "open floor plan" nobody asked for that's historically failed at every other major corporation. Complaints about this new plan fall on deaf ears, don't be fooled by the town hall meetings. New job titles and positions to fill that don't address the core business functions, AKA too many chiefs and no Indians. Promotions are seldom and annual raises don't even meet annual GDP increase.
