Productive environment
Productive and challenging environment, every employee have an input to production but the hardest part is working in a group after some years as a lone worker.

Hard work
Always under pressure to do the work and meet deadlines. A thankless job. Very few compliments for hard work done. Wages are minimal. Training is minimal. Career advancement is nil.
