    Great job, Awesome on a resume

    Cons

    Peers and mentors are great, Immediate management/hiring team are careless, hubris, and take actions to benefit themselves rather than help you succeed.

    a boss uses their employee growth for themselves, a mentor/leader benefits from their employee growth.

    Pros

    Solid company culture and coworkers are generally nice and helpful. New technological initiatives seem to be moving the company in the right direction, even if it is being done so rather slowly.

    Cons

    Woefully behind technologically which requires a lot of extra work. Many different pieces of these legacy technology systems don't work everyday which causes major issues. Very poor pay... the benefits sounds great but don't make up for the lack of cash coming in after a few months. If you have an issue you aren't really allowed to solve it... it often gets escalated up to a senior team member. Managers/team leaders aren't really involved in developing you or your skills or even setting expectations properly but are quick to notice your shortcomings. Your work load will be doubled over time so the money you aren't make a lot of to begin with seems like even less over time.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your most valuable assets... i.e. People more to attract and retain better talent and invest heavily in newer technology. Manually importing and exporting, pressing buttons, and copying and pasting all day shouldn't be a job. Structure the positions so that it utilizes some newer technology which will then allow people to think rather than escalate an issue up to management.

    Pros

    Challenging work, good benefits and great people. They tend to have plenty of opportunities for those individual looking to advance in their careers, but you have to be willing to work for it.

    Cons

    When I first started there the work life balance was terrible but has been improving over the past two years. To be honest, at first I didn't mind it because I was eligible for OT but once I became a salaried employee, my direct reports were making more than I was during our peak production periods which seemed to be every other month..
