Senior Analyst - Government Compliance (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – 8 July 2013
Government contracting is a unique sphere. Even though GD is not a government entity, it is strongly regulated by the governmental entities for whom it works. Therefore, pay and advancement are not based on merit or talent, but upon seniority. The good news is, it's hard to get fired. But if you have ambition to excel and advance up the ladder, you'll have to leave. That's what I did. I left for a lot more money after I was turned down for a promotion and asked to train my new boss whose only qualification for the position was 30 years at the company.

Flexible Work Day in Monotonous Workplace
Logistics (Former Employee) – London, ON – 29 November 2017
-a typical day is flexible in start/end/break times -long-term goals usually prioritized, occasional short-term pressure -usually overtime opportunities, often overtime requirements -bare essential training, little in the way of learning opportunities -enjoyable if you thrive in a team setting and work well with others -not much for you if you need recognition or validation for your work -the company struggles to retain good people yet often keeps workers on short contracts
