Pros: straight-shot commute, autonomy, chance to lead a team, salary
Cons: neighborhood and lunch options, office in need of renovation, morale
If it were not for a few close team members and colleagues, I would have considered leaving, despite being promoted and receiving a raise within a year by my immediate manager. The condition of the office is borderline deplorable, though it appears renovation work has begun to give it a refresh if not major facelift. Colleagues are great, though management seems removed. Position granted much-appreciated autonomy to fulfill responsibilities and allowed self-sufficiency and creativity. Position allowed for development of management and people skills.
