Unfair job advancement

I worked at at SNC for 6 years and each year my responsibilities grew, but my salary was not matched to my workload. Others in the same business line as I were doing less and getting paid much more. The companies rational was that I wasn't a "trained" Admin Assistant, yet I was doing everything that was expected of one and my Supervisors were happy.Unfortunately, the feedback from my Supervisors was not considered in my advancement; only what the Lead Manager of the Admins.

Pros

Work life balance

Cons

Unfair rating system. You work for one supervisor, but your ranking as d development is determined by the Performance Manager, who was not at all professional.

They take advantage

They kept me on contract for two years without having to pay me above min. Wage even though I was promoted. The last year I was there, it was every three months a renewed contract and then it went to 1 month at a time until they sold our division to Brookfield.

It was a job

I did my job. Ups and downs like every where else. Good people, bad situations made for a lack of projects which made it hard on everybody. It used to be a fun place to work.

Productive place to work

Generally a quite place to work. Co-workers are great but don't mingle with each other too much. Company culture is good.

If you want to work in a Mad Men environment this is the place for you

The directors I would work for were men with little view of women. I got little respect and we are basically considered like our opinion doesnt matter. You can see a net difference between the directors and the employees who do not have a big title. I decided to leave because the company was beginning to be unstable and most of us felt like we were working in a prison. Best decision! I am now working at a company that allows growth and the managers respect the opinions of everyone whether it be an Admin assistant or a Manager. Also the salary is not something that you can live off.

Pros

Good retirement plan

Cons

No respect from Directors
