High stress, minimal to zero reward and compensation
Web Content Writer / Editor (Former Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – August 20, 2014
During my time at the company I developed new training materials, edited new style guides, personally piloted products before they were launched globally, created audit procedures and provided direct feedback to employees based on their production capabilities, writing, and customer communication methods.
Despite this, in the over 2 years of employment with the company, there was no room for growth, and very minimal compensation. I frequently did the work of multiple people at once, managers included, though my compensation (and treatment from anyone in management or other departments) did not reflect that I was anything but another entry-level employee.
Additionally, extreme responsibility was placed upon me due to this, which placed me in extremely uncomfortable situations. In many instances I was given responsibility over my coworkers, though I was in their exact same position with no true, definitive authority.
It was a job taken out of convenience - and it was good for that at the time - though I would not recommend it to anyone that has the ability to remain selective of their employer.
