Well I was very naive and uninformed throughout the recruiting process about what exactly operations is. I just saw the great name of the company and figured it would look good. Boy was I wrong. I figured "Hey, it can't be as bad as everyone says on WSO", much to my disappointment, it is. The task are very mundane-that is, when I actually have something to do. Granted, I've only been here a few months, but in operations your learn absolutely nothing of value. It grew from liking the easy hours and laid back culture at first, to pure loathing. Please, prospective job monkeys, if an operations job is your only offer, keep looking. Now don't get me wrong, the hours are easy and its very chill with somewhat decent pay. If this is your sort of thing, then it can be great. But for everyone else, it sucks. I'm actually considering repaying my bonus and going to intern for a local mm or boutiqueif the opportunity comes up.
Just a heads up to prospective monkeys.
