    Support & Guidance

    Culture

  • 5. What was the company culture and general atmosphere like?
  • Bad atmosphere and culture on site. Very bad management and general morale extremely low. Hard to tell whether due to COVID and all the reductions but bad management certainly doesn’t help. No one on shop really has any time for the interns so can be very difficult. Seems like most people don’t enjoy their job which rubs off.
