    Good Company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people are really genuine. The benefits are fantastic! The company truly has a strong culture that they operate by. Hard work is often recognized.

    ConsCommunication through the company can be lacking and disorganized. They tend to treat the people who work in corporate headquarters better than anyone else in the footprint.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Stepping Stone

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood experience as a first job out of college. Learned a lot. Transitioning into a new roll will take some time, but you have to remember that success cannot be measured by what you did yesterday. New positions will come along frequently, but you have to show that you have excelled at what you were hired to do.

    ConsLow pay early on. Management is constantly overseeing everything that you do on a daily basis.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReviews are too frequent. Let the people work and establish relationships. Breathing down their necks everyday accomplishes little.

    Good place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPay is OK. Not the best in the industry but not the worst. You are also able to have a good work life balance. When projects are due you will be expected to work until your part is completed, but normally the pace is reasonable.

    ConsAdvancing in your career can be a challenge. Some people stay in their same role forever. You must make your own path as management doesn't seem to promote from within based on job performance alone. It can be done but networking is key.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWatch for employees who perform beyond their job grade and promote from within. This will make employees feel worthwhile so they continue to perform at a high level.

    IT Security, Risk, and Governance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you are looking for a job that pays well with decent benefits, this may be the place for you. Work-life balance is good and everything looks good on the surface.

    ConsDon't expect to come in and grow your career unless you are a part of the good old boy network, brown nose, or can manipulate the higher ups. If you are a good performer on your job, you'll be rewarded with being stuck in that position. If you can talk the talk and claim you are always busy, you'll have a very bright future.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare information with your team so that they can provide feedback on things that they are seeing so that you can move in the right direction, not just what a small group of hands off managers think.

    Good place to work - has some irritants like most places

    IT Resource Planner (Current Employee) Wilson, NC

    ProsCompensation is great, Company really believes and practices its values for employees and customers. Opportunities for personal growth every year through training. Great life balance perks and benefits.

    ConsAs companies get larger the understanding of processes between departments gets clouded. Sometimes and irritant. As always too much work and not enough hours in a day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHolistic approach to all processes would leverage more consistency and learning between LOBs.
