Again, due to the department, it was possible that you could easily be taken for granted with more and more work piled upon you. Unfortunately at the time I worked there in order to create efficiencies in their IT infrastructure they needed a dedicated developer. As a technical assistant I did not have the background of a developer, but still developed databases to assist with the efficiency of the department, however the remuneration was not appropriate for this function.Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advice to managment would be to pay attention to team morale and respond accordingly.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookNo opinion of CEO
