Workplace Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Workplace is an enterprise connectivity platform developed by Facebook, Inc. and includes the use of groups, instant messaging, and a news feed. Development is led by Julien Codorniou, Vice President of Workplace, & Karandeep Anand, Head of Workplace. Workplace was first announced on January 14, 2015. It launched in beta as Facebook at Work before officially launching in October 2016. Facebook recognized the importance and need for a Workplace product in 2011 when the company began using Facebook groups for business purposes internally for collaboration and communication. Alongside Facebook Messenger, these private groups helped Facebook employees work more efficiently together by reducing their reliance on email and other Software as a Service tool.
A dissatisfied customer shares his review, "The Workplace platform doesn't appear to provide any substantial benefit not already provided by project management or chat apps. Also, many employees are hesitant to share more information with Facebook."
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) says"Good agency to work for until they owe you money... rang for 4 weeks, they feed me the same BS everytime , still waiting for money now 8 weeks later absolute joke"
Counsellor (Former Employee) says"Worst company to ever work for. Bullying and anxiety. They care nothing about you as a person. And this is a company that says you should be empathetic and caring at all times. Yeah for the client. But no empathy for you. The second day of training my trainer said I should quit and I am behind.I said with your help I will have success. She told me I will not have time to help you. Never work there. Bad people. Cons: Everything"
Customer Service/ Case Manager (Current Employee) says"Never Work here management is horrible!!! No room to grow within company overall ! Management talks about there employees !!! High turn over rate !!! I repeat do not work here !!! Cons: Everything"
BUCA Specialist (Former Employee) says"Please understand that if you work here, the company will expect you to put company needs before anything. Even your family. Required to work holidays ( including Christmas and Thanksgiving). Whether you have kids or not, they try to force you to come to work during a natural disaster or unsafe driving conditions such as an hurricanes or iced roads. However, they are very flexible with you work schedule if you are in school. Cons: Short breaks, micromanaged, constantly harassed by leadership, forced to work holidays."
Work Life Consultant (Former Employee) says"One of the worst places I have ever worked! The training was a joke! The supervisors were a joke! Management was a joke! Blatant favoritism! Poor working conditions! Constant unattainable goals!"
Consultant (Former Employee) says"Don’t take a job here unless you’re desperate. The morale is terrible! Almost every employee is unhappy and nobody cares. It’s a call center where every second of your day will be micromanaged. You will be told you’re doing a terrible job and no support will be provided to improve. The health insurance is terrible, you will be broke paying for it. Managers aren’t trained and are terrible leaders who talk down to you. Do yourself a favor and keep looking, you will be thankful. Cons: So many, the morale is terrible, managers are terrible"
Counsellor (Former Employee) says"This an an oweful place to work with neurotic managers he'll bent on meeting share holders targets at the detriment of staff morale and productivity."
Case Management (Former Employee) says"I work at WPO for a little more than a year, there is no room for advancement. The job itself can be very stressful and the pay is extremely low and does not in no way match the cost of living. Management is very out for themselves as are most of the co workers and you’re very much a number never treated as a person. Cons: Very low pay and terrible management"
Carer Assistant (Former Employee) says"This care Home promote bullying and the culture is toxic please don't get a job here you are badly trained and unsupported it is a terrible place and staff are awful Cons: Training ang support is lousy"
Staff Accountant (Former Employee) says"This place may look like the bomb to you, like the ideal workplace, but is not. Management will scream at you for no doing what they asked you to do in a timely manner (and when you did not get the proper training for it). Other co-workers will refer to you as a body in a chair, and even make fun of you if you make mistakes. I was even part of a conversation between 2 co-workers staying that I was there just because I was bored at home and waiting to be knock up! Management find out about it, and did not do anything to remedy the harrasment, They do not pay overtime, and the levels of stress are the worse."
Consultant (Former Employee) says"poor conditions, poor compensation, poor leadership"
Case Manager/ Telephone Counsellor (Former Employee) says"Had a tough time working for this America company, if you speak your mind your sacked... Or your told to leave. Cons: Pretty much everything"
Consultant (Former Employee) says"This is a good job if you have no other options. They hire mostly people that have little to no work experience or who are desperate for a job, or people they know. It’s great if you got hired based on knowing someone, because then you will be fast track promoted within no time. Otherwise, there is no chance at moving up, no matter how hard you work. No breaks, micromanagement like nothing I’ve ever experienced before, complete lack of critical thinking skills in every department. God forbid you have a good idea that might help the business, it will get shot down or someone will take it as their own. Pay is terrible. Stay away from this place unless you are desperate."
user (Former Employee) says"Supervisors pushing their own work on to others. People who care because they are being paid to do so. Good benefits however your not getting paid enough to use them. Cons: office snitching, low pay, back stabbing, horrible supervisors not minding their own business"
Telephone counsellor/case manager (Current Employee) says"Corporate Company that focuses on productivity and performance as Its main aims. This company does not encourage therapist to use their autonomy and leaves little for growth and development. An environment where , you are constantly monitored. There is a lack of trust for the employees. Constant auditing where an atmosphere of fear is created with constant stress around performance and productivity makes employees like myself feel burnt out with little motivation to stay, Cons: Demand for productivity"
Clinical Referral Specialist (Current Employee) says"I would not recommecnd this company to anyone. That is why I am finding other employment."
EAP Counselor (Current Employee) says"Do you like being tied to a cubicle for at least 8 hours every day without a break? Do you enjoy feeling guilty about taking your 30 minute lunch? Does lying to clients about their company "benefits" sound fulfilling? Does sucking up to management give you a thrill? Do you like being asked to come to work on your day off because the company is chronically understaffed from high turnover? Do you find it clinically appropriate to have all of your client interactions recorded and saved in a database, then evaluated by managers who have no clinical background? Do you define "positive work culture" as meeting with your friends to cry about the lack of support in the bathroom together? When you take a vacation, do you like wondering if you'll have a job when you get back? If so, then Workplace Options is the place for you!! Workplace Options boasts an oppressive work culture with micromanagement, constant surveillance from supervisors, competition against your co-workers to see who can "help" the most clients (translation: get them off the phone as quickly as possible since the company is paid per call), and the least fulfilling job you will ever have as a counselor. Cons: No freedom, micromanagement, unfulfilling work, monotony, no job security, lack of support"
EAP counsellor (Former Employee) says"Fast paced environment, stressful, pressure, high level of performance, repetitive, small call centre."
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) says"First off I'll say the actual staff are brilliant people but you will not be allowed to talk to them or socialise with them. For some reason the directors and higher management think you are children and you are not allowed to talk to each other and even though this is ILLEGAL they will watch on cameras to make sure you're not talking. Doesn't matter how hard you work, if your sales are on target, they'll treat you like a baby or like a number and discipline you for the most pathetic of reasons. The higher management and directors are bullies, if they decide they don't like someone they will pressure them in every way until they leave, this has been going on for years and I don't understand how they get away with it. They will count how many times you will go to the toilet, TIME your breaks, expect you to work through lunches to get a bonus that will be taken away from you at the drop of a hat. What they put staff through is organisational abuse and the hard workers who work there have nobody to turn to so they can stand up for themselves, they'll end up leaving and the cycle will continue with the new person."
N/A (Former Employee) says"This place is not a happy place for workers to feel fulfilled and it will cause healthy persons to get sick because the volume of the workload is too much and the the work hours are unbearable. Favoritism seems to be the only way to be recognized for hard work done. Don't leave your job to go here, unless you are desperate or you don't have a job and you cant do any better. The turn over of staff seems to be high."
