I worked at Systems Studies and Simulations full-time (Less than a year)
There's a popcorn machine and coffee maker where you can have all the free coffee and popcorn your heart desires (until it shuts down). At least the benefits are decent so when your heart does shut down you can have it covered.
There's no reward for going above and beyond if you do try hard within the company. The praise that you ever receive is more of "Good Job, its done now get working on something else." rather than "You did a really good job on this." Salary is despicable, almost to the point of laughable compared to the same positions in the area. The company cares more about the job rather than the employee.....unless you've been there for 30+ years where they just don't care what you do at all and still will allow you to keep your job while doing nothing but drinking coffee and roaming the halls like a lost child at the supermarket. Have an important family event? Doctor's appointment come up? Looks like you didn't put in for that 3 weeks ago, I'm sorry we're not going to be able to let you take off today. Expect you to work 5-10 hours more than 40 hours a week. Was told by my supervisor, "You don't seem to be working enough free overtime for this company. Don't you want this company to succeed?" Honestly, No. I don't. They provide you with a salary and think its enough that you won't kill yourself from paycheck to paycheck. With no care for you other than if you're getting work done.
Advice to Management
Consider caring more about your employees and less about your bottom line. Your employees ultimately make your bottom line, so the more you treat them like crap the less they'll care over time.
