Stepping stone job.
Pros: the benefits are great (ie blue cross/blue shield & lots of pto time.)
Cons: nepotism reigns supreme!, unless your family or buddy/buddy with key people, there is no advancement, poor communication between: management - workers and interdepartmental, hr works for management, not for the worker, yearly raises are less then 2% per year
When I leave for the day, I can forget that I have a job.
Unless your a relative or a good friend of management, then this is a stepping stone job and not a career; cause there's just no advancement otherwise.
There's a real us vs them mentality between workers and office staff. So, a team bond is formed from that.
On the positive side, the benefits are unmatched. 20 vacation/sick days to start, with an additional day per year. The health-plan is also really good, but is getting pricey. There's also a company bar-b-que and Holiday Party every year.
