Increasingly more uncertain about the future of my job
Content Editor (Current Employee) – Radnor, PA – August 6, 2014
When I began working here in 2009, I absolutely loved it. The environment was laid back and friendly. As time has progressed, it's become increasingly more rigid with a number of unexplained layoffs. There have been numerous restructurings and an attempt to improve the company's culture. The compensation is minimal, with unnoticeable increases each year. We are given a yearly 10% bonus (if the company reaches its goal, which it sometimes does not), however, and our medical, dental and vision coverage is affordable. They also provide tuition reimbursement, which has been incredibly helpful while I pursue my graduate degree.
I worked there for five years before I was promoted. I had applied to the same job every single year and it was continually given to a temp with no prior experience within the company. I was finally given the job randomly with no mention of it being available, after a year of "helping out" the team. My training for my current position was minimal, as I was told there is no training process in place. As co-workers either quit or get laid off inexplicably, there are no replacements. Therefore, the workloads are distributed to the remaining employees and have become completely unmanageable. The expectations far exceed what is possible in a work day.
Tuition reimbursement, benefits, commute, bonus
Lay-offs, uncertain of future with the company, no opportunities for advancement
