Executive leadership talk a great game, but they don't deliver on their promises. They quickly pick their favorites, who can "do no wrong;" however, those that truly go above and beyond to produce can "never do enough." The rare pats on the back are always followed with a "but." Priorities don't make sense, and unreasonable deadlines are always pushed, regardless of the guidance and suggestions you provide. The concept of work/life balance is non-existent, as you're expected to be available 24 hours a day.
Pay was not bad; had a great manager that was flexible
Stressful work environment; rude and condescending executive leadership; thankless job
