    Pros

    Intelligent group of friendly dedicated professionals. Good to work with and have a large base of expertise to help.

    Cons

    Overworked management does not focus well. Many tasks in IT and HR are outsourced to other firms, very difficult to get answers, over-bureaucratized.

    Advice to Management

    focus on your employees as well as you clients. Find out what your employees need and find ways to make their professional lives smoother.

    Pros

    Cool coworkers and some really helpful "AH Coaches". Benefits offered to contractors.

    Cons

    Call reviews twice a week is a bit much. Super far from everything. Seriously the place is in the middle of nowhere. People commute from far away. Some out of state. The staffing company are pains in the rear end. As a contractor, you have a very limited amount of "points" that you can take off/arrive late/take off early before they fire you. Some of the "AH Coaches" are just plain evil. It all depends on who you get. 30-minute lunch sucks!

    Advice to Management

    Increase the point system for contractors. After 5 or 6 months, you can't really expect people not to have emergencies, child care issues or doctor appointments that is not doing the work week.

    Pros

    Schedule: off weekends and major holidays, location, no micro managing. Some of the people are a pleasure to work with. The department has holiday gatherings, monthly employee recognitions.

    Cons

    Over worked-expected to meet strict deadlines with inadequate training. work isn't interesting if you are looking for something more mathematical. Work is mostly administrative. Lots of phone calls from participants. Benefits are just satisfactory.

    Advice to Management

    Properly train new employees. Keep them on 2-3 teams so that they have specialized knowledge of client work.

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, Sales Bonus, Work Life Balance, Benefits (401K Match)

    Cons

    Upper management drops the ball a lot in regards to getting BA's the proper info that they need. We spend a lot of time being reactive, and fixing unnecessary customer issues. Sales Managers are too focused on moving up, and do not always provide great assistance to their team. Also, BA's bonuses are always delayed and manipulated in some way, which is very discouraging. Many of the Quality Manager's are full of themselves, and need more training themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the lower level employees in the Sales and Service Center, and acknowledge their concerns. Provide more hands on or real life training during On-boarding.
