Pros: Great non-salary benefits
Cons: lack of vision, salary, employee engagement
Typical day at work consists of fire drills and reactionary measures. The office I am in is sales-oriented and tactical, not strategic. The management team here excels in hitting sales goals but falls short in the areas of process improvement, being proactive, and work/life balance. Project plans are generally not adhered to, scarce resources are vastly over-worked (particularly IT) and those serving in Project Manager and Sr. Project Manager roles are not compensated appropriately.
There is an unparalleled sense of satisfaction knowing that what we do extends and saves people's lives. Difficult to find that type of gratification anywhere else.
