The thing that kills me about this company, is that people like their jobs. It's whats around their jobs that people don't like. Having meetings about having meetings, micro-managers, and collateral duties are ridiculous. Maybe about fifty percent of the time you'll do your job, and the other fifty percent are things you really shouldn't be doing, but the amount of employees is so barebones,that you have to do other work, which puts you behind on your normal job. The priorities that management puts on you is always changing, so you can never focus on one area. This would all be okay if the pay was fine, but its definitely on the low end in comparison to other positions of the same title in the area. When I'm doing my actual job I love it, but because projects are always being made (some with no good reason) and the companies strategy is always changing; on top of no potential for advancement if you're not a manager, it's hard to stay motivated.
