    Pros

    Provided opportunities to develop bench skills as well as communication and data organization skills. They were supportive of allowing personal development which led to career advancements.

    Cons

    Can be a very fast paced environment in which a great deal is expected from you, which is not necessarily a con, but it can be a somewhat stressful environment.

    Pros

    This company provides an excellent stepping stone to young people fresh out of college. You will get promoted if you work hard. Opportunity to develop technical skills. Some managers genuinely care about their people. I made the most of my time here because I cared about the work I was doing--if you care and you show it and you have a decent manager, your career will benefit from working here

    Cons

    Very low moral. Expectations at times unreasonable. Extremely stressful environment. The salary is very low for the industry. You will be expected to make sacrifices including long hours and weekend work. These things are simply non-negotiable. Experience entirely dependent upon manager you report to. Some people are selectively babied and others are taken advantage of. no way of knowing which one you will be. A few bad eggs near the top. I was fortunate in that I had a better working situation than many of my peers, however my freedoms were earned after years of proving myself a competent & trustworthy employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve moral--try a little positive reinforcement. Some people worked so hard and received so little recognition for their efforts. Give people a resource to use when they have issues with management. The complete lack of any HR department is problematic. Be more aware of the unfair distribution of overtime and weekend work as it seemed to fall disproportionately on some people shoulders.
