Poor work life balance and benefits average
Project Engineer (Current Employee) – United States – January 15, 2019
Management starts with 10 days of vacation and you gain 5 after every 5 years employed. You are only able to roll over 5 of your days to the end of the 1st quarter of the year.
Expectation and culture is to work when asked including weekends, and as salaried worker, you are not paid for that time, of course. Good job out of college, would recommend getting the job gaining skills that you can use elsewhere once you can negotiate better benefits.
Travel is expected and this job is hard once you have a family, so get in young and get out before you start planning that part of your life.
The pay looks great on paper, but once you realize that you are working more than 40 hours a week and never home, you realize it is to compensate for the poor work life balance.
Decent pay, gaining work experience
