Mostly training and comms staff aug on tech implementations. Some org design, but those types of projects are few and far between. Agile change experience will benefit you. They are trying to be more creative with deliverables. Work life balance is great. They do a lot of fun company events. Minimal travel. Fun, nice people. Just not very challenging work. Very flat and political, so hard to get new ideas off the ground. Great place to go if you need to decompress for a year or two before moving on.

Hey guys welcome to the project management/ organization development bowl.

One of three 1st year (soon to be 2nd year) associates. One had to relocate to Singapore and another just left our office for Dallas… think I have leverage to ask for a raise after my performance review? I would like to ask for 3rd year associate comp.
