Office is very stressful and hostile
Employee (Current Employee) – Round Rock, TX – October 8, 2018
Would not recommend to anyone unless you are single and don't have any family or a social life. Work/life balance is poor. Expect to be called on your day off (whether vacation or sick) for a question or information that can absolutely wait until the next day. Expect to work lots of overtime when your manager suddenly says it is required. Management is not supportive of (all) staff or their concerns and expectations of some staff can often be very unreasonable. Favoritism is really bad and if you aren't a pet then you can feel really screwed. Lots of stopping, starting and running in different directions because management doesn't always understand what needs to be done, but they expect certain results either way even if they are completely wrong. Only one way to do anything - the manager's way (see previous comment). Managers have no problem telling you at the last minute while walking out the door at night that they need something on their desk when they arrive in the morning that they've known about for weeks. HR department is highly pro-management and doesn't offer assistance or support to employees requesting help for issues with superiors. If you go to HR with an issue with a supervisor prepare for a follow up rebuttal of your failings, especially those you've never heard of before. Management is condescending and talk to you like you don't know how to do your regular work or have to be reminded. Awful place. Enjoy most of my coworkers though.
Some of the employees are good people
No breaks, so be expected to work through lunch without eating, very hard to take off for anything without being made to feel guilty, overly aggressive management style, very silent office until the manager yells and screams which is frequent
