overall good place to have a career in a quaint college town
Coordinator of the Chain Sales Reporting team (Former Employee) – Keene, NH – April 23, 2013
On a typical day, I would come into work a little bit late and start rushing to meet deadlines. I would finish all of my early morning deadlines by about 2 o clock and then I would take lunch. When I got back from my lunch break, I would have 10-15 e-mails to read and organize. Most of the e-mails would not get a response for about a week. Then, I would start working on the projects that my direct supervisor asked me for. Usually, these projects would require me to research and gather useless information that has no strategic value besides making the business look good. I learned not to rely on managers to act as the buffer between myself and upper-management because right before the employee reviews, upper-management is going to fire the middle management and leave me to have my review directly with the supervisor. I will be responsible for explaining all the short-comings of the middle management, who is now gone from the company. The good thing about the job was that I had job security. As long as I was willing to face my boss and look her in the eye while she told me that my work was not good enough, I had the freedom to be as lazy as I wanted. There was no positive incentive to do good work, only negative incentive to not do bad work.
flexibility and easy work
