Manufacturing Engineer in Fairfield:
"You Are A Number, Not A Person."
Pros: There's job security. Unless you screw up really bad, there's so much red tape in a corporation this size that no one will bother to fire you.
Cons: Honestly it's terrible to work here. They don't care about employees at all. All the silly stereotypical things you see of corporate culture in movies like office space, are horrifyingly accurate. The CEO would literally throw you under a bus if it meant the share price increased.
