Acquisition by a European company has resulted in a free-fall of talent and resources. After more than 4 years, there is still no sense that our company is part of any short or long term plan, nor have we been provided any guidance or assistance in addressing issues. There is virtually no interaction among the various branches and the (lack of) any structure among middle managers has led to apathy. Hundreds of years of experience on the part of first-tier sales professionals is unappreciated and undervalued. New hires face a lack of leadership or any observable path forward in their respective career. It is a dying company.

My time in Industrial Controls was an intriguing experience. I use such a synonym because it was a brand new field of work that I had no prior experience in. I was very happy at the fact that my Co-op teacher helped me land the job. Not only was the pay good, but the work was generally easy once the hang of it was received. I received the proper training that I needed and there was always my supervisor there to aid me if I needed help. My only issue was that I had a fear of asking questions. I don't have that problem anymore because I forced myself to grow out of it. The thought of working in an establishment such as this one intimidated me so I kept to myself with the exception of a few of the other office employees and some employees in the warehouse. I had a great relationship with the guys in the warehouse. They taught me things that were out of my job jurisdiction. So I am beyond grateful to have learned more than what was assigned to me. The reason I left this establishment was due to that when I received it, the job was seasonal. I fortunately stayed around from the fall season through the winter season. So once February came, I was let go by my manager.
