Pros: profit sharing, but benefits have been trimmed steadily year over year
Cons: too many employees idolize leadership...creepy!!
* Typical day...reviewed workload, attended meeting, adjusted workload, emailed/programmed, lunch or meeting, emailed/programmed, attended meeting, and planned the next day's workload.
* What I learned...(1) if it ain't broke, fix it, (2) once broken, you're to blame, FIX IT! (3) once fixed, it was management's/leadership's accomplishment, (4) if it – more... doesn't work, do it again and again until you exhaust the budget, (5) new year, new budget, repeat #4, (6) cover your rear, always, (7) leadership changes goals/rules/specifications at will, now things aren't covered, (8) why didn't you cover this?!? (9) handicap stalls are a great place to hide, unless your same-sex boss has a disability, (10) bathroom etiquette does not apply to Middle-Eastern and Indo-Asian born managers, so be prepared for an awkward powerpoint presentation.
* Management...they just want to be loved.
* My co-workers...mostly a competent bunch.
* Hardest part...consistently changing goals due to the constant shuffle of supervision/management.
* Enjoyable part...(1) sitting in team meetings where leadership spouts their intelligence, entrepreneurial spirit, and general AWESOMENESS, (2) watching leadership initiatives implode, (3) reading about promotions the formerly mentioned leaders received, and (4) a few times per year, company paid for team-building outings where the goal was to beat the heck out of each other--it depended on the manager.
Overall, working here was not curing world hunger, sending a man to the moon, or finding enlightenment. Work-Life balance is good, benefits a tick above standard, and teamwork relatively collegial. Good luck, job seeker! – less
