Like hitting the lottery.
Pros: high wages. no one looking over your shoulder as long as your job was done.
Cons: constant rumors of site closures and take overs. losing workload.
Mental exhaustion from stressful work environment. Meetings, Always rumors about job insecurity. Some co-worker conflicts.
Department mergers and new bosses, who brought in new ways of doing things.
Pay was excellent. Cafeteria and ATM. Books sales, encouraged to volunteer in the community, access to Higher Education opportunities, bonuses, life-long friendships made and top-notch health benefits. Weekends off. Plenty of sick days. Family leave and paid psychiatric therapy. Leaned about co-workers lifestyles and had the opportunity to have some myths about people dispelled.
