Pros: traveled to other states (meeting planning) with co-workers
Cons: assisted a few micro-managers who were not qualified in their field(s).
Although the company no longer exists (acquired in a merger), there was a good balance between work and family life. Besides the annual company picnic, Casual Fridays and the Holiday parties at the Cipriani Dolci, what I enjoyed most was 1/2-day Fridays during the summer!
Like most companies, we had our good days and we had those occasional hectic ones. But I was fortunate to have worked in a department which cross-referenced information to/from other departments; and communicated with many levels of management within the organization.
Good medical and dental benefits. Starting salaries slightly lower than expected...but easily adjusted through hard work (merit increases/promotions), and year-end bonuses.
