Current Employee - Operations Specialist II  in  Kansas City, MO (US)
Current Employee - Operations Specialist II in Kansas City, MO (US)

Pros

Gain experience working in a corporate environment. Learn what you should do versus what you should not do. Now I understand the questions necessary for future companies. They pay for school... Take advantage... Find the right group and life becomes flexible... Or, if you're looking for overtime.. there are groups that provide plenty (Just don't plan to be a manager in those groups).

Cons

Find the wrong group and you can kiss work/life balance out the window. Most managers could care less what is going on in your personal life.. Just that the work is getting done and efficiencies are being put in place. And you better believe that daily deadlines are more important than your lunch or your health or you getting out on time. Be prepared for weekly turn-over and training of new employees.. Not to mention the consistent cross-training for the inevitable turn-over and call-in rate. Sick days are use them or lose them, therefore turning employees into liars just so they can take advantage of their benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get to know your employee! Increase the base salary back to what it was a few years ago. Find ways to provide real challenges for employees to keep their interests. Compensate those who go above to obtain their Masters.. It's amazing how many MBA holders there are.. sitting around, not applying their newly obtained education.
