Pros

They gave me a wonderful severance package.
Employee First Culture is practiced in some areas.
There is a system to thank co-workers where both the sender and receiver are entered into a drawing.
They helped pay relocation from another city.
There are some fantastic people working at the check center near the airport.
You are allowed to work from home in the middle of the night while on call.

Cons

Was expected to work 50-60 hour work weeks, but told by management only to report 40 hours. On call is horrible in IT. Expect to be woken up every single night that you are on call. The work environment is horrible - mainly because of back stabbers, and liars. I worked all day, and then all that night. I was then expected to be on site that next morning after working 25 hours straight.

I was deceived as to what the work environment would be like. The lack of integrity from management is what bothers me the most about this company. My manager told me repeatedly that he owned me and all of the people that worked for him. We were to be at his beck and call 24/7/365. There was no work life balance there. It was work-work only.

I brought innovation to this company that saved hundreds of thousands of dollars. My reward? I was scaled for growth. I was highly discouraged from applying within the company for other positions. I was discouraged from training to learn new skills for the company.

Advice to Management

Be honest. The deception is not fitting of you. Embrace First Power in all jobs. IT should be allowed to do more than read about First Power in action. Allow movement within the company. Let employees interested in other positions to explore them - even if it is part time in one, and part time in another.
