How is HR defining “employee care”?
Can they stop creating marketing terms and just do the freaking obvious right thing for employees. Better base salaries, better benefits at less cost to employees. It’s not that hard. Perhaps they should think about it as a volunteer opportunity for... — read more

They totally ignore feedback
Someone here made a great point, employee feedback from surveys is not used to improve the company at all. Do they care about what we think and how we see this place, or are they totally uninterested in our opinion?
