A strong competitive corporate environment, with intense training opportunities to gain leadership skills and advancement
Pros: strong training and advancement opportunities
Cons: heavy work loads causing stressful work environments
Work environment was geared for excellence, for learning, for a lean environment, and a strong focus on the customer.
Co-workers strived to be the best, and management expected it.
I learned to strive for that excellence, and enjoyed the comradery of daily successes, with co-workers and leadership.
Although work was not too complicated in the roles I was given the opportunity to perform, the work load was heavy. The heavy work load seemed to be a common condition across many departments. With a strong focus on lean the environment, co-workers and I learned to work smarter, not harder. Success in a stressful environment felt like strong victories. And pushing to achieve those daily victories was, and is, a goal of every employee.
