Vent about your job

Cool site, http://www.jobvent.com/

Blast/praise your employer.

Funny to see one of my ex-employers, Progressive, in the top worst companies. Definitely a nightmare of a job.

Re: Vent about your job

I saw Enterprise on that list too...from what I understand, they offer a lot of young people managerial opportunities, only from them to work 60-75 hours a week with little to no time off.

Re: Vent about your job

That's pretty common for a lot of retail or service oriented businesses.

I have like 4-5 friends who went that route right after college. They said they work their asses completely off, but they get paid well and get good benefits.

The old time/money conundrum. Those who have a lot of money usually don't have a lot of time. Those who have a lot of time usually don't have a lot of money.

Which is exactly why Powerball and MegaMillions are so appealing! All the money, and all the time, in the world!

Re: Vent about your job

I have a good friend who worked at Enterprise for 5 years. They work you to the bone and the pay isn't all that great for the time you put in. His stories about that place reminds me alot of Progressive. It's very, very clicky. Once you get on someone's bad side watch out, they will dig for any reason to run you out the door. I'm serious too, Progressive fires people left and right. They have no problem canning people. Employee morale there is in the dumper.

Re: Vent about your job

More of a praise than a vent...

I work for a fairly large strategy and technology consulting firm in the DC area that is not publicly held. The CEO and partners don't have to run the company from a standpoint of always trying to please the shareholders, and thus the employees are treated much better. I've been here 4 years and I like it so far. The pay and benefits are top notch.

The worst part about taking a job here is the massive cost of living increase when moving in from somewhere else. A lot of times that alone outweighs the increase in pay.
