While rent in this area went up about 40% in the past 5 years, my pay went up about 3%. The management said that there was no money in the budget for raises, but the executives are provided $300-$500 worth of catered lunch daily. No worries, though, the worker bees get to eat the left overs from lunch around 3 pm.
There was also no where to grow at TNG, you are doing what you will be doing for the entire time you are there.
That being said, its not a bad company. There are annoyances in every job. This company offers a good bit of flexibility with your work hours. The starting pay is decent, it just never increases. You can leave the work at work when you go home.
