Cons: lack of transparency, insurance is rising, pay is low, forget about a raise
Been here two years now. At first the company seemed solid but after an acquisition and some policy changes, the company seems very rocky. Over the last year, I've seen more than 200 lay-offs. My mgr said to me basically to look around for other work in case they decide to lay more people off. That's scary. The management tells us nothing about what is going on. They seem to constantly try to pinch pennies so they can acquire more companies but never seem to think of their current employees well-being. When I started, our company Christmas party involved going out to eat and having a couple of drinks, playing some games and getting a few prizes, like a TV, tablet, etc, all on the company dime. It was fun. Now we are allowed only dinner, under $30 with tax. No prizes, no drinks, and we have to do this during work hours so we have to take leave to even attend. Recently they also decided to take our only other perk left away, free coffee. Now we have to buy it ourselves. I understand it's free and they don't have to give it to us, but when you as a company start taking every perk away from the job, it starts to wear you down. People start to look elsewhere.
I also found out that as far as pay go, I'm on the bottom rung of my pay scale. I make what an entry level college grad is suppose to make. I have a four year degree and seven years experience. I asked by boss about it and she did nothing. She kept saying she would look into it and never did. The only thing we've received as a company is a 1% raise, and not everyone got that. No bonuses, no Christmas gift, nothing.
I'd say take your talents elsewhere. I plan on it.
