      Great Company, but your experience still depends on who you work with & under. Do your homework first.

      Pros

      Great stated company culture, mission statement, and objectives with plenty of opportunity for growth.

      Cons

      Very segmented by department, with each having its own culture where you find your personal experience doesn't align with the company's stated values or culture. At the end of the day, every where you work and anything you do will always be all about the people involved. Great people can make a less than desirable employer seem great, while the inverse holds true as well. Try to get some inside information and feedback on the direct manager you would be hiring in under, the department, and the culture created by those two. It is hard to get when you are external, but whatever you can find will be worth it. There is nothing worse than working for a great company, but with all the wrong people.

      Large Company, Good Pay and Benefits

      Sep 30, 2021 - Senior Technical Writer in Lansing, MI

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good salary and benefits, excellent paid time off, flexible work environment if you're an office employee.

      Cons

      The company is embracing Lean/Six Sigma methodologies with cult-like enthusiasm, regardless whether they are appropriate to a given situation. Can be paternalistic at times. The company as whole neither understands nor values the work that technical writers do. I've never seen company that so misunderstands the powers and limits of computer software.
