Pros: the ability to telecommute when needed, getting a week and half of paid vacation every christmas on top of my vacation time, endless opportunites and challenges, and lots of potential for promotions
Cons: short notice for required travel, lack of sufficient resources for projects, ongoing conflict between plant and corporate interests
Every day is very busy as the goal is to keep the plant running and avoid shutting any of the different areas of the plant down if at all possible.
I learned a great deal about communication and accountability.
I am a corporate employee who works in the plant to support both plant and corporate needs. Management on both sides are generally satisfied – more... with my work, even though the goals/needs of each can be very different.
My co-workers are all very dedicated and hard working people.
Being a "satellite" type employee can be very difficult because the goals between my management team and the plant management team are not always the same.
I am required to be a self managed individual and have always enjoyed that and had great success with it. – less
