Just a job

Project Administrator (Current Employee) Malvern, PA

ProsMost people are nice, lots of vacation days, flexible with hours, lots of "fun" things to participate in (United Way, Diversity, etc.)

ConsLow salaries (60-70 for people in supervisor roles with MBA's and 10+ years experience), limited opportunites to go up any higher than supervisor, reviews are a joke (typically a percentage point or two for pay increases unless you are one of a handful), most people just happy to do the same job for years on end and just coast by, boring jobs, make mountains out of molehills, basically find one negative thing that you did and that becomes a huge deal on your review

Advice to Senior ManagementOther than salaries (which they don't even include on surveys anymore), find more career paths where you actually move up vs. just taking laterals for 10 years

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
