It pays the bills, but I'm looking for more.
Pros: location, surrounding neighborhood, job currently meets my financial needs.
Cons: substandard benefits, low morale, poor management and advancement opportunity.
My daily routine normally consists of checking the computer database for incoming work, checking my office email for other work requests and performing these tasks within a given specified time frame. In the seven years I've been with this company, I have acquired valuable computer and typing skills, as well as a more educated perspective on the basics of office culture. Management lacks communication skills with employees and places little to no priority on employee satisfaction and advancement, in the form of sub-standard benefits, minimal salary advancement (20 cents per hour, per year), and delaying/neglecting to prioritize employee review sessions, which are supposed to be performed on an annual basis on the employee's anniversary with the company. Several employees, including myself, have waited weeks and even months for their 2014 review. Most of my co-workers are immature, disgruntled, rude and lack professionalism. Sometimes I wonder if I'm working in an office or a high school library. The hardest part of my job is dealing with these co-workers on a professional basis and also dealing with outside clients, mostly via email, who don't clearly communicate what they need. The most enjoyable part of my job is that it's located in a safe neighborhood and is close to where I live, so I'm able to take walks for exercise on my breaks and even walk home for lunch. However, I would gladly sacrifice these conveniences for a well-managed, professional, satisfying environment with real growth potential.
