Great flexibility but culture needs some improvement.
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 7, 2018
Working remotely helps to offset the cons of frequent travel and long days. Job security is good, but folks don't practice career planning/coaching. If you want a personal development plan, it's 100% on the employee. Much of management started in the lower ranks of the company and worked their way up. There is a therefore a lack of acceptance for people who come from other companies. The culture is one that is not supportive of work/family balance. I was unable to take bereavement when my father in law passed because I was unable to find someone to help with my workload. I've frequently had to cancel planned vacation days with my son at the last minute in order to meet emergent work requests. Technology and tools are very lacking making many work processes administratively burdonsome. There are, however, many hard working employees that support eachother and give their all to the company. Company events are very focused on teambuilding and help to provide a time/place to blow off steam.
Working remotely, some work hour flexibility
Work/life balance, lack of tools, 'old school' culture
