    Good Insurance plans, flexible spending accounts. Not great vacation plan. Very few additional perks.

    They pile on responsibility and/or promote you, but without a pay increase, then say you have to prove yourself for up to 6 months in the position in order to get the higher pay. Then after a year and a half, no pay increase except for the standard less than cost of living raise each year, they keep adding to responsibility, with the same speach. All the while a younger person gets special treatment and better pay for the things you are doing.

    You start out as a contract to hire employee with hardly any benefits. No vacation, no holiday pay, and it is stated that you are going to be contracted for a year, but that is really up to the discretion of the manager you are talking with. I saw people get hired immediately or very quickly in less than a year during "hiring freezes" and I was never converted over, which is one of the reasons I left. On my way out the door of course it was mentioned that I could get rolled over but that was too late at that point. I saw too many people get special treatment, which seemed more like a popularity contest than anything involved with skill set or work ethic.
