      Buyer Beware

      Pros

      You Have almost unlimited overtime. If you desire to make 100k a year you can. However, you will live at your job. We are so short staff that you truly never have to worry about layoffs. It is also extremely hard to get fired. It normally takes a lot of paperwork and witnesses to fire a person out of your position.

      Cons

      Your job is very much stationary. You will sit on a boat for 8 to 12 hours straight. You can not use a cell phone and you are questioned for doing anything. Using the bathroom is a privilege as you have to wait on someone else to let you go. Your leadership is your worst enemy. The biggest problem is they have never done your job and have no idea how to do it. On top of that, they take away a large sum of the power you have to enforce company policies just to make someone else happy. Also, you are easy to blame for other workers' shortcomings as you are there on-site 24/7. So somehow something that is not your job is your fault. Your leaders will not defend you on it. They are the ones who blame you.

      Pros

      I learned a lot about my field and got an idea of where I want to go in life.

      Cons

      PARKING. (no seriously). Unresponsive management, uncertain employment prospects, stagnant pay with ever increasing responsibilities, takes ages to hire new people.

      Decent place to work

      Pros

      Managers and Co-Workers are awesome especially if you're on a great team. Christmas Shutdown two weeks paid, can't beat it. decent pay - well below industry standard. flexible scheduling - remote work is allowed if you are approved for it.

      Cons

      Where to start? Advancement is almost non-existent, no matter how much experience you have. You want a job family promotion, nope, not happening. That is of course unless you blow the right people. It seems the incompetent get promoted over the competent because of office politics.
