Most days were fairly laid back, and there was usually ample time to plan & schedule the days tasks. Whenever there was an urgent situation, everyone seemed to jump right in and help each other. Our office had a good team spirit, Upper management was not always aware of the amount of work being completed, and at times seemed to be somewhat aloof. Other team members were happy to share information, and teaching new staff. There was a lot of on-the-job learning, and it helped us all to take ownership of our jobs.
The hardest part of the job was being squeezed between corporate interests, and the interests of our customer. I had the privilege of working with very smart, committed people.
Flexible work hours, casual environment
Subject to changing contracts, so not as much job security
