Tough Work/Life Balance

Pros

Fantastic mission and fun events. Work day can be flexible with option to work out of the office or from home if necessary within a day's activities.

Cons

Lots of night and evening commitments and depending on the areas you're expected to cover, there can be a lot of driving to do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work harder to promote a better work/life balance. Employees can get burned out quickly with the amount of work they're expected to do without the encouragement to keep a good balance.

    Great for a kid right out of college, otherwise, too much work, no way to move up.

    Pros

    Sense of making a difference in the world. Good vacation and benefits

    Cons

    No room for growth unless oyu are willing to move to other states and cities. LOOOONG hours and very little recognition for achievements. No raises or bonuses due to economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please start recognizing your employees for the amount of time they put in over 40 hours a week. We need to be compensated with Comp time if we can't get overtime or bonuses.
