Regular work hours and an almost regular paycheck depending on department. My department also offered some scheduling flexibility. Everything is extremely non-personal and corporate structured, as long as everyone is playing by the rules, human resources related items are fair and reasonable. Please notify HR as soon as your manager oversteps his/her bounds, it can happen.
I've never been so degraded by management. I think I only heard 1 compliment from my employer while I was there. The corporate culture is back stabbing. It is common for people to steal your ideas/projects. And this is my "separation from employment" experience: I showed up for work and my boss said "due to your insubordination, we're letting you go". I've never been told that I am insubordinate nor was there anything mentioned during my employment. Two days prior to this meeting, my boss asked me to hand in my resignation letter as she knew I was leaving in a few months. When I got down to the HR department (yes, it's in a separate part of town), they said "please sign your resignation papers". Excuse me? I thought I was fired to day and quitting in 3 months. Well, apparently, any time after you hand in a resignation they can terminate your employment. So, my boss tricked me into quitting. This is not an infrequent case. I have heard it a dozen times from co-workers, but I never thought it was real.
Advice to Management
Focus on management skills and what it takes to build a team. Remember that the whole is greater than the sum of it's parts and if you don't support your team, you might as well not play. Every time you demoralize someone on your team, you have lost a game. Nobody wants to be the Detroit Lions of the season.
