    Look Somewhere Else

    Jan 5, 2021 - Director in Washington, DC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Smart colleagues, good pay, new office

    Cons

    Amount of stress - real work hours: 6a.m. to 2a.m. All the Directors here work like this. You will never see your spouse or kids. No human decency. After I decided to quit I knew I would have to pay back some of my bonus but I didn't know how much exactly. Little did I know that the first time I'd be contacted by HR would be with the threat of sending me to the collection agency. There I was in the hazmat suit with gloves in the empty post office in the first days of covid pandemic when nobody would leave their house out of fear sending my bonus with registered mail. And on top of that, many pairs of shoes that I left in the office were stolen or at least I never got them back. There is also a lack of meaning to your work because all you do is write reports for a regulator.
