      I have been working at MSD full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      You gain great experience and exposure to the company operations

      Cons

      Work overload! Over reliance on working very long hours with no thanks and absolutely no support from most management. The ethos is to "Never let a teammate fail" however this is definitely not practiced by Management, they'll head home and leave you to perform all day and all evening and then get you to explain on repeat 3+ times a week minimum at the status of actions at the Tier sessions Team members are overlooked...

      Advice to Management

      Start respecting the staff you have and acknowledge when employees go above and beyond to close hard actions or tasks they completed without Management support. Hold onto staff that are there and willing to work.
