I worked in Vancouver, WA for Lionbridge Technologies, testing prototype equipment for HP. Much of the work I performed was repetitious and did not require much thought. However, there were always new things to learn and opportunities to help others.
The work environment left a lot to be desired. The majority of my colleagues had never been employed before and so retained a childish mentality regarding failure and accidents or miscalculations. This led to many workplace disputes, disrupting the work environment for others and causing sub-par performance, which in turn angered HP. These disputes not only occurred amongst test operators, but amongst lower and mid-level management.
relaxed work environment, accomodating schedules
workplace arguments, lack of employee work ethic
