      Misogynistic culture, treated with no respect

      Pros

      You learn a lot quickly

      Cons

      The culture is toxic. You're expected to work overtime without any pay. You're always "on call" and expected to drop everything in your life if "work calls" no matter the time of day/night or if you're on AL. There is a culture that respects male employees above female employees. Women do 2x the work as men with little to no thanks or recognition. Good luck climbing the ladder because they don't promote people. FTEs get all the praise for projects even if it was a temp/contractor who did most of the work. QA don't know what they're doing majority of the time, a lot of questionable processes, teachings, etc. There's a big them versus us culture between FTEs and Temps/contractors. Some managers are awful and don't support/listen to their direct reports.

      Pros

      The overall company goals and philosophy are good. Lots of training opportunities and courses.

      Cons

      Burn out culture. Overtime not paid, but constantly expected. Most staff doing 50-60 hour weeks every week. Lots of people on stress leave. No new hires, very few FTE conversions so many departments are understaffed. All about the ‘cliche’ if you’re white, Irish and willing to compromise your integrity to appease big personalities you’ll go far. Very poor standards for quality, compliance and training overall.
