This is what I imagine to be a career experience description at Weyland-Yutani:

____

Are you seeking a career with an interesting, enjoyable experience? Do you wish for a relaxing, well paying job? Weyland-Yutani has just the opportunity you need!

We have many positions for those who would like to work for us. Weyland-Yutani promises decent pay, proper emergency procedures, health insurance and detailed training on the position you want to apply for. You won't need to worry about your safety, Weyland-Yutani puts that at the top of their priority list for you!

As a test subject, you will receive the most vital role in our industry. You will be interacting with our fine specimens daily. For applying for such an important position, we ensure that your payment will always have you satisfied. Everyday, you will be escorted by combat androids to the labs where you will get your head ripped off *cough cough*, I mean interact with our experiments. Meanwhile, the scientists will watch the specimen's behaviour as it feeds on your brains- I mean plays with you.

Scientists are responsible for recording important details and gathering information about our experiments. As one of them, you will be watching how the specimen behaves under certain conditions. We advise that you remain focused when working for if you are at the wrong place at the wrong time, Dr. Groves will lock you in the test chamber and leave the specimens to tear you to pieces. Your safety is our primary concern, we urge you not to fool around when on the job.

Our security force remains the tightest out of all research industries. As a security guard, you will be working with our combat androids to make sure that rules are followed and regulations are met. You will be controlling the elevators, the cameras, the security measures and the Weyland-Yutani network. It is also your duty to make sure that no specimen is anywhere but the test chambers. As security, we expect you to risk everything you have to prevent these experiments from escaping.

If the specimens do happen to break loose, we have lockdown procedures to ensure your safety. While the facility is under lockdown, we recommend not going near the test chambers; you will end up getting torn to shreds. We also urge you to stay out of the corridors as that is where our turrets will be set up. We want the turrets to be shredding loose specimens, not employees. If you are security during this time, it is your responsibility to make sure the facility is locked tight, if it is not, we will toss you into the test chamber with specimens and watch as they tear you from limb to limb.

Occasionally we may have a Predator break into our research facilities. They usually come to retrieve the artifacts we take from the ancient ruins around our area. If you are security, then we're afraid that you are screwed, for the Predators will rip off the heads of anyone armed within our facility. However, if you are a scientist or test subject, we strongly recommend that you do not touch a weapon while a Predator is loose or they will rip off your head as well.

Colonial Marines may also appear at the research facility. Our combat androids have instructions to terminate any trespassers trying to get inside our facility. Please do not stand up for the marines or our androids will be forced to shoot you as well.

We here, at Weyland-Yutani offer you an opportunity of success and achievement at our corporation. Please give our career opportunities some consideration. We hope to see you soon in our facilities wearing our uniforms. Our success creates your wealth!

I would work for them as an engineer. I would upgrade all of the facilities and stations with emergency lighting that isnt red and dull, I would also replace pipework so that every corrodor doesnt have pipes looking like alien heads and lastly I would make sure that steam didnt randomly vent everywhere when some various self destruct was actioned and the siren that makes it impossible to hear would be ripped out as well.

These few actions would save many lives I think.

Oh yeah and in the event of some dangerous creature escaping and setting up hive I would make sure that when you seal yourself in a safe place that said creature can't just climb in through the suspended ceiling.

There we go!

Do they offer full eye/dental? Are uniforms supplied as well as OSHA approved safety requiremens met? Is anything over eight over-time? How many vacation/sick days do we get, and are they paid? Do we get paid weekly or bi-weekly?

I don't know, man, most of those changes would probably require the consent of the CEO, meaning Mr. Weyland.

Umm, seeing how the games depict the Weyland-Yutani Corporation...I would not want to work for them.

Notice how, their only goal has seemed to sprout from greed and lust for power. Weyland wanting to control the Aliens and sending his Synthetics to exterminate any witnesses just shows what he's willing to do to his own employees.

Another example of Weyland-Yutani's cruelty is seen on the first Alien level especially when they send in 2 Colonists and 1 Guard to test Number 6's combat abilities when they could've just have used animals or combat dummy's.

All in all, even though they seem to treasure their employees, they really put them at the lowest bit of the food chain, even lower than their Synthetics and equipment. It proves how much they love money more than saving lives.

I think the game does a great job of conveying the same negative aspects as "The Company" (and those who work for "The Company") in the films.

Yeah, I think the AvP games/comics/books show Weyland-Yutani as being evil. The higher-ups not caring for their own employees; they use them as fodder in their experiments.

In AvP2, I remember, Dr. Eisenberg (very similiar to Dr. Groves in AvP3, same attitude and personality) cut off the link to the POC (another facility under Weyland-Yutani control) because he didn't want to go and save them from the Alien infestation overtaking it.

Also, when the Marines arrive, questioning Weyland-Yutani and the POC's fall, Dr. Eisenberg notes that they still have teams out in the field for biological and archaelogical research. So, basically, instead of calling for help, they wanted to use their employees as bait to attract the Aliens and Predators, so they may capture them and study them (in the Predator Campaign, this was shown).

They later used the Marines as a distraction, so Dr. Eisenberg could extract the Empress from the Hive. In one scene at the end of the Alien Campaign, it only reinforces this by showing after Weyland-Yutani captures the Empress, their Synthetics terminate the Marines guarding the Dropship to carry her off the planet.

Note: Dr. Eisenberg (AvP2) and Dr. Groves/Mr. Weyland (AvP3) are very similiar bad guys, because they all want to learn and use the Xenomorphs as Bio-Weapons of war to sell on the black market.

Anyway, since I just noticed how Dr. Eisenberg and Dr. Groves are so similiar, let me list their traits:

Groves and Eisenberg:

- Both want to control the Xenomorphs
- Both find them to be used as controllable pets/powerful allies
- Both found a fascination in them, but are really afraid of them deep inside
- Both are cocooned at the end of the Alien Campaign (AvP2/AvP3)
- Both will sacrifice they're own employees to save their own skins/test the Xenomorph's combat skills

Weyland and Eisenberg:

- Both are actually augmented Synthetics
- Both die at the end of the games
- Appear to be the higher-ups of the Corporation
- Are the final bosses of each game (Alien for Eisenberg, Marine for Weyland)

Here's my conclusion on this analysis:

Eisenberg and Groves are strangely similiar. Weyland seems to have more affiliation with General Rykov, who is also from AvP2. What's strange is, Rykov had his own private army (Iron Bears; aka Mercenaries), and so did Weyland (Elite Combat Synthetics).

No way would I look for a job at the Weyland-Yutani Corporation.
They just don't give a crap about their personal and they also do illegal and unethical experiments on humans.
I'd rather be working for one of their rivals that do care about their personal.

I think the storyline is pretty pathetic. I don't remember Weyland coming back to life?

He never did come back to life? Where the hell are you reading that?! Karl Bishop Weyland is just 1 son that resembles the Weyland's before him.

The current "mr" weyland is an android, when he is killed a new one is activated to resume where the other left off. Thats all.

Ahhh :D yeah, I was just thinking of the first AVP film when Mr Weyland is killed. I wasn't sure how it links in with the games.
