unrealistic expectations, no work life balance, management out of touch with staff
Pros: co-workers, vacation time
Cons: no work life balance, manditory overtime, ever changing expectations
Company has had rapid growth. Management did not plan ahead and departmental employees are now in mandated overtime. You can plan on working at least 10-12 hours a day, with some employees working up to 15 hours a day. The overtime has been occurring for months and doesn't seem to be getting any better. Management unwilling to listen to the employees or ask for input. No work life balance, expectation is that all company needs will be fulfilled ahead of any personal or family obligations. You are expected to change personal plans without prior notice to meet company needs. Many employees have been working 7 days a week. The benefit package is average with the exception of vacation days which this company offers more than the usual, however, with the current work load and departmental policies it is sometimes difficult to be able to take vacation when you want to. Many mixed messages and different instructions depending on the manager you are talking to.
On the flip side the best part of this job is your co-workers. They are dedicated and hard working.
If you are happy in having a job that consumes your life, this is the job for you. If you have interests outside your job or a family you may want to look elsewhere.
