Compressed salary scale enables you to start at a higher rate of pay than comparable jobs, and speeds up advancement to the top of the scale within a few short years. However, the trade off is that comparable jobs have a higher pay scale Maximum long-term.
My schedule results in rotating days off which allows for one weekend a month off, but the trade off is long stretches of work days. Would be better if schedule included either 10 or 12 hour options. There is limited opportunity for advancement.
The people and management are great!
