Infrastructure Engineer - Technology Division (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – February 21, 2017
Long days, extra hours and effort are the norm. After 10 years performance evaluations were always good, but raises always fell behind industry standards. They were hiring young/cheap H1B people to replace older/expensive longtime employees, then asking us to "help" the young people understand how to do our/their jobs. No retirement (pension) and I struggled to add to my 401K because of bills/kids/house in low growth position. My boss was my boss for six years, his boss was in charge of him for 8 years...high turnover and low morale. Training money for education was hard to access, many signatures needed for approval, too hard to overcome sometimes. Managers have little empathy for employees, much of a "US vs THEM" attitude from managers...Sorry, I can't help you... Heard often.
no chance for advancement unless your in the clique.
