"Work is fine."
Pros: There are lots acactivites around.
Cons: Parking isn't great

Sr. Instructional Designer (Training & Development):
There is a lot of micromanaging and low pay depending on where you are working in the company. Certain segments of the population work two jobs to make ends meet. The medical insurance is poor and does not provide much help for employees. There are gyms and cafterias.

Sr. Instructional Designer (Training & Development) in Raleigh:
"Love the work; environment is toxic."
Pros: designing eLearning courses
Cons: The culture

Sr. Instructional Designer (Training & Development):
. It was a good place for me to take ownership and grow, and I helped to build the brand and the processes for my section of the department almost from the ground up. I appreciated the efforts that leadership put into trying to gather and implement employee feedback. But they did not do a good job with the lay offs in Oct 2017.

Sr. Instructional Designer (Training & Development) in Salt Lake City:
"New to and enjoying the healthcare industry."
Pros: I enjoy the city life / atmosphere; it has walkability, restaurants, coffee shops, nice architecture, and is a University town.
Cons: The commute is a moderate to acute pain, and I don't love having to dress business casual after coming from non-customer facing software companies where I could wear jeans / shorts and a t-shirt.

Sr. Instructional Designer (Training & Development) in San Francisco:
"You're never done learning."
Always be learning something new (tools, technology, processes, etc.). Embrace change because in my experience nothing stays the same for very long and you need to be able to quickly adapt to those changes in order to be successful.

Sr. Instructional Designer (Training & Development) in Columbus:
"Save Early And Often For Retirement."
Save at least 10% of your income for retirement -- that's in addition to whatever your employer sets aside for you. The older you are the more you need to save, 15% - 20% or more. When the market is down, buy more stocks than when the market is up. Do NOT dip into your retirement account to buy things -- not even a house. Save lots for retirement so when you're in your 50s and you're fed up with corporate life, you can retire.
