Great Co-Workers, terrible company
Admin Services Clerk (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – July 13, 2017
I work in support services, the team I work with is kind, helpful and accommodating.
The company my team works for is ruthlessly exploitative and cares not a bit for the people who work for them. My admin team is comprised of 80% temporary employees, and we enjoy perks such as:
Promises of no merit increases (yes, this is true.)
No access to skills development tools (full time employees only)
No promotion opportunities, it literally doesn't matter if you work hard or not, they compensate you the same, and this has been stated to me several times through the temp company they rent us through.
Here's the kicker:
They recently just switched to an outsourced temp company from outside the country, and everyone on our team must reapply for the jobs they just had. This includes the team members that were Qualcomm employees.
That's right, they actually bumped their dedicated, long term employees to temp status.
They still pay their average engineers close to 6 figures, but they won't even consider paying the support 1/3 of that, and will happily oust the people that have given most of their adult lives to the company to save a few bucks.
Of course, with every company that exploits it's help, we are also overworked, but I won't bore you with the details.
If this sounds like I'm angry, you're absolutely right, this is a meat grinder, not a job.
