Pros: emphasis on work-life balance, no boring positions!
Cons: minimal workers for maximum efficiency makes for hectic schedules.
The day started at 8, unless you were a long-distance commuter. Then, the working hours were flexible. Free coffee, tea, hot cocoa, etc. was available, as well as Starbucks for purchase in the cafeteria. A great varied lunch service was provided in the cafeteria with emphasis on healthy eating. I started as an administrative assistant but over time learned and grew to the point where I was able to assist in the purchase of a new, more functional database for the corporate real estate department! Management takes a real interest in the development of talent within the corporation. I always worked well with my co-workers and team work is a serious part of the culture there. The hardest part of the job was keeping up! We were so busy and multi-tasking all the time, but the challenges met were worthwhile. The most enjoyable part of the job was that it is a toy maker! It was fun to work there and occasionally glimpse new toys in prototype, and the company picnics were a blast!
