Benefits: None

Comments: All of the jobs I've been placed in have been extremely demanding. In fits of paranoia, I often imagine that Tiger sends me on the toughest jobs because they believe I'm a glutton for punishment and can tolerate unrealistic and inhuman expectations. I don't know. Maybe all jobs are like this.

The job I have just resigned from worked me to illness. I worked for 7 bankers, 1 analyst, 2 administrative staff persons, and occassionally bankers from other branch offices. 95% of my work had extremely short deadlines. I had no time to take lunch or rest breaks and often worked until midnight, and sometimes past midnight. Tiger has expressed no displeasure with me when I resign from my jobs. I attended a free ergonomics class provided by Tiger and I thought it was really good.

I haven't worked for many other agencies, but I get the feeling that Tiger pays better than most. Tiger gives free training in most applications. They are usually responsive when I need work. When I expressed discomfort with my last job, they intervened, resulting in better treatment from my bosses.
