Pros: Good starting pay. working with lots of tools and new issues every day.
Cons: Long hours due to unreal deadlines.
Arrive early to work. Usually leave on time. I have learned a lot about SQL, EDI, and Scheduling software. Also, Perl, Python, Powershell and other scripting languages. Management is very top down and pretty old school and does not communicate down to the worker level very good. They are pretty fair and flexible, but promotions and rewards for good performance is not rewarded. Co workers are fine, but the team environment does not exist. Everyone does their own thing and it makes it difficult to make friends at the office. The hardest part of the job are the deadlines due to bad project planning. I really enjoy working with the scripting languages and watching my solutions function and provide value added services to the company.
