I was paid very well for what I was doing. I was on a great team with really helpful and friendly colleagues. My manager was a kind and generous person who was very concerned for our welfare.
I sometimes had to work unsociable hours to accomodate staff who did not work during normal hours. Often had to rechedule things multiple times due to unforseen scheduling conflicts.
Advice to Management
I noticed a lot of people working really hard who complained about not getting recognition for it, and others who pretended to work hard but did not and getting away with it which was a detriment to the morale of their colleagues.
