Pros: some of the best coworkers around in the local office, felt like family, direct manager was very understanding and helpful as far as work/life balance.
Cons: because my skills were not the typical skillset for this company's workforce, advancement was not possible within it.
I had numerous short turn/ low budget challenges brought to me on a daily basis, to which I always stepped up with as much creativity as possible for a given project. Multi-tasking and quick and efficient decision making was a must here. As multiple levels of writers/management were added or got involved in the process above me, they restricted my creative – more... freedom a bit and had their own directions I was to follow, but I was able to still make sure that a quality product was the final product even with huge technical and budgetary challenges. So I learned how to make a lot happen with limited resources. Had to remain flexible due to changing management structure and priorities. – less
