Pros: salary, benefits, community events
Cons: poor management, high turnover rates and layoffs, which they love to call "natural attrition"
* Typical day: Routined work atmosphere depending on the department. With some departments, rules change like the weather. Every single aspect is priority to the company. A very rushed and stressful environment.
*I've learned to utilize my time better and to carry myself more professionally. Certainly a great atmosphere to work for young college (or – more... High School) graduates wanting to gain experience in the business field. Plus the company has training classes in everything from writing proposals to learning latest computer programs and you can take these classes more than once.
*Co-workers are diverse, which is good. But they can be very cut-throat since IT IS a corporate business that offers mobility and chances to get ahead. To work here, tough skin is a MUST.
*The hardest part: working in a team environment when other co-workers are non-responsive, incapable or plain lazy to achieve team efforts. There is often poor management and many HR complaints.
*The best part: community events. The entire company gets involved in charitable events…and of course the salary is not bad. – less
