Over worked and poor pay raises and bonuses

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsGood co-workers and a great place to build experience. Due to lean environment, you wear a lot of different hats. Good 401K program which has a match and defined contribution.

ConsDue to the lean environment, you feel overwhelmed very often. The average pay raise is below the inflation rate. Bonus metrics are never achievable even though company continues to post record profits.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to retain talent and keep up with the rest of industry with regard to raises and bonuses.
