work life balance with some degree of demanding work schedule
Network Specialist (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – August 29, 2016
It really depends on which group you are working with in such big Corporate organization. Our group was sort of the bottom of the food chain. As you could imagine, most of the funding resources were not quite there regardless whatever the management was trying to address. The team I used to work for is a very diversified and everyone is a little bit different with their own character. No matter how different we are, I learned a great deal from this team and I enjoyed the teammates that I get acquainted to. Due to the fact that I am at the networking group, we beared a lot of IT costs by natrue. Therefore, we are not the most blessing children in the family for a fact. Work-life balance is always emphasized by the management, in reality, it is depending on who your manager is. Some could be very understanding, but they don't last long. They do reward people who is working hard enough in most of time. However, if you are new and a newbie. It will take a few years before you could even know your resources or the right people to work with your project. Management is pretty much focus on the number instead of actual work that is related to the individual. The last thing I heard before I left this company, they are making some changes and hopefully this will get improved.
