    Not what it used to be

    Senior Engineer (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsPay is decent for this area of Wisconsin.

    ConsZero work/life balance in some BUs. Ops is notorious. Ops loves to run understaffed and have their employees leave their personal life behind. While other BUs have deadbeat employees who don't even work a full week, amd produce little or nothing while they are at thier desk. VERY uneven treatment. And they trumpet healthy this and healthy that as management pushes the employees who actually produce, to a work life of constant stress.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a break from giving yourselves bonuses and cashing all those stock options like winning lottery tickets, and start showing the grunts who do the real work that paid for your gravy train lifestyle, the respect they deserve.
