    Great place to work. Compensation very weak.

    Oct 28, 2013 - Applications Technology Senior Engineer in Madison, WI

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Work/Life balance excellent. Good benefits. A lot of flexibility with your schedule. 5/4 schedule is an option.

    Cons

    Pay use to be competetive. But it seems to be falling way behind the market (at least in IT). Turn over seems to be high lately as a result. Hard work is usually rewarded with more hard work rather than increased compensation.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Had a decent work/life balance because I was hourly and no overtime was allowed.

    Cons

    I was placed in an office as a marketer for a foreign agent. I could not help 75% of the clientele as a result because she was a niche agent. I was expected to produced the same amount of business as the rest of the office who were established and spoke the same language as the agent.
