An area company employee has had the same job with her company for more than ten years, and has been complaining about that same firm with current and former employees every day she has been there.
In that time, she had never offered one suggestion, gone to one company event, stayed a single second past closing time, spoken up in any meeting or done anything past her bare bones job description.
“This place has some problems,” she said. “Don’t even get me started on the coffee machine in the employee lunch room.” Asked if she should take some of her complaints to someone that can change things for the better, or even, perish the thought, take some initiative, she declined. “They know what to do. They just are not doing it,” she said.
