For the person fresh out of college, it's a great experience because everyone has too much to do and they are glad to share the work with someone new. People are generally very friendly and extremely helpful. Since the company has been reducing labor by layoffs for a number of years, none of the people who remain are in any way slackers, everyone is cream of the crop. So there are lots of great role models and communication between fellow employees is usually exceptionally good. Pay is generally much better than average and EK looks good on your resume when you find that next job.
Generally, there is a huge atmosphere of doom and gloom because of all the downsizings and the company still has not "turned the corner" to financial stability and success. Morale is non-existent. Opportunity to move from one job to another is very limited unless you're one of the "chosen" who managers are promoting. The executive management act like they know what's going on, but company performance fails to support that act. That's depressing. The CEO, Antonio Perez, has been a very successful hatchet man, but as you might expect, hatchet men are not very good at inspiring the employees and providing vision. And his regard for his employees is less than stellar. I don't believe he even knows the definition of "empathy" let alone having any in his character. Though he'll say otherwise, the ONLY thing that matters to him is the bottom line; that's REALLY depressing.1
