This year's extra effort is next year's baseline performance.

Systems Administrator (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsExcellent salary and benefits
Good employee perks
Up-to-date technology, if you can get to it

ConsWork/life balance: 90% work, 10% life
If you do an extraordinary job this year, that will be your expected performance next year. You are never good enough.
The US work force gets smaller every year, and the workload increases every year.
There's a lot of emphasis on getting training, but never time to get away from your work long enough to actually get it. Which counts as a failure, come annual review.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou cannot increase the workload and shrink the workforce indefinitely.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
