Pros: 20 minutes from home
Cons: no opportunities, none of any kind whatsoever, bad management, far behind in technology, real far behind.
A typical day involves fixing bad data or code with old technology or unstable cheap software. And your expected to work extra hours doing it.
I have learned that no matter how bad I think I have it at least I am making an income and this place has so many things wrong I will always have a job no matter how much I hate it.
Management are nothing more – more... than propaganda pushers. We constantly get emails on how great everything is "but you can do better" and nobody is happy and nobody is fooled by the BS.
My co-workers all feel the same but on different levels. Some accept their stuck but don't bother looking for something better, some are constantly looking and consider HPS a good motivator to keep looking.
The hardest part of the job is just coming in every day doing same dull work using the same dull, old software while being asked why it's taking so long to complete and being told to do anything (work more hours) it takes to get it done.
The most enjoyable part is knowing the day ends and I get to home and work on more advanced software in order increase my skills to get another job. – less
