      Pros

      Could have been great but it was not.

      Cons

      Organizational culture that encourages promoting friends instead of skilled professionals. Only friends are getting promotions or salary increases. Reorg after reorg that goes no where.

      Pros

      Great people, and a great inclusive culture

      Cons

      Employees do not have a lot of confidence in the leadership team. Compensation is very fair for new employees, but quite poor for those that have been there for a long time.

      Good experience and learning lessons

      Pros

      Days are flexible to achieve in field work. Direct Manager was amazing and believed in her team. Health Benefits were great.

      Cons

      Pay should be better (lean very heard into the “benefit of a work vehicle” when it’s a taxable benefit you are paying the lease for). Micromanagement via stats and lost time tracked = doesn’t equal a feeling of high trust in employees. Didn't offer any room to climb in the company or personal development (was told many times “this would be the job I will retire from” but didn’t offer any skills building or incentive to stay).

      Good for resume. Poor pay and management

      Pros

      As a beginner job, it's great! You gain experience with a workplace that stands out on future applications. Management was decent if you're just there for a paycheck . If you have aspirations you definitely need to conform a bit in order to move up. I guess just your very average job that is what you make it. Not awful but not a career. Use it to boost resume and GET OUT :)

      Cons

      Micromanagement 1000000%. God they lost amazing workers over that. Prioritized sycophants over respectful and professional feedback
