Being a structural designer, I was required to vet designs from customers, and come up with new concepts for newer customers. Management was really bad in the way of harassing the designers, using name-calling, threats, and the opportunity of hope (but ultimately never following through as shown time and time again) - just to crush your spirit as a way of getting you to work harder. Horrible place to work, and they are very money driven to the point of not caring about their employees. I put in a hard 3 years of work there for nothing to show in the way of advancement, raises or opportunities. Once things slowed down, you had a lot more free time than you would think.
Lots of free time some days
Management, Stress, Name-calling, Negative work environment, threats, broken promises
