Pros: work life balance, friendly coworkers, room for growth
Cons: pay may not be slightly lower than competitors
First off, you need at least a Bachelors degree to really make any money. The difference between having completed a Bachelors degree and being a few credits away from completion is about 10K. So wait until you complete your college program before applying, a recruiter may tell you the same thing.
I also had day 1 benefits, health, dental, vision, and 401K. The insurance wasn't bad, wasn't the best either.
This was my first job out of the military, they offered to sponsor my TS SCI clearance and pay for my full-scope poly, which is very nice.
The on-board process was pretty quick, I did the generic company indoctrination the first week and was in my workplace the next. The dress was casual and we worked 4/10s. It was very nice having 3 days off each week, although most of the time I didn't have all 3 consecutively.
The work varied each day as we supported deployed equipment, but was challenging. At first, knowledge sharing was non-existent, but over time, our management encouraged everyone to share tips and processes, which made managing customer complaints easier.
My immediate manager was very honest, clearly listed expectations and goals, encouraged growth, and offered to reach out for extra training.
