Great company, but lack of opportunity to advance
Junior designer (Former Employee) – Pacific NW – September 29, 2015
I worked for this company for a few years and sought to advance in my career. However, upon being there a few months, I realized I was in a silo and unable to despite my efforts and meeting with management. I sought to take classes to improve my skills, and learn other tasks, but I was consistently locked in to my role without any additional assistance from the employer.
The client IA had set the pay rates and I was under-compensated.
I learned much and was an expert at what I did, but the opportunity to grow and advance as advertised in the interviews and offer letter never came to fruition.
One would think that a firm dedicated to its clients and its employees would assist those interested in advancing themselves for the benefit of the company.
I'd think twice before checking out IA in the Pacific NW.
Lunch and learns, happy hours, young work force
under-compensated, lack of ability to advance professionally
