Industry in flux, reacting to change with automation and legislation.
Account Management Associate III (Former Employee) – Latham, NY – April 4, 2012
I made it through 3 reorganizations, but not the last. Think due to my higher salary and slowdown in legislation, as well as my last project being completed. Was given positions largely aimed at producing effeciencies. I enjoyed that tremendously as I was given an opportunity to use my problem solving skills. I also worked on implementing changes that automated processes as well as implemented new state and federal legislation. I received an award for my work.
Those were interesting and challenging tasks, and I enjoyed working with others on the teams.
I was very self motivated having come from previous hi powered positions outside the industry, and received jealousy from the salaried staff in my department who were not chosen for those teams. These were people who did not work beyond 8 hours per day, did not see the big picture of our industry, but complained about everything. This was a difficult working environment, and I have to say that management dropped the ball communicating to them.
challenging, interesting work.
job insecurity, many reorganizations, and job duties changing often, poor people and resource management
