    Pros

    Good work/life balance, hours are flexible, you have time to learn, not a lot of stress, free lunch, fruits, snacks, tea and coffee, pay is ok. They have summer hours program and jeans day every Friday in the summer. They have some discounts for employees and they are thinking of creating a day care.

    Cons

    Work from home is not available and the lunch could have some more healthier options.

    Pros

    Love my hours, free lunch is great, share in the belief "spirit to serve", decent outsourcing package, good people to work with.

    Cons

    Not many options to transfer out of department due to outsourcing. Posted for other position but hired someone w/ less experience from outside the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Did not receive much appreciation for the work we do when the decision came down to outsourcing the ops department.

    Pros

    I agree with the others. Good benefits, free lunch, etc. The work is rather easy, so there is not much stress.

    Cons

    Political. my managers are not very involved with the associates, so there is little communication. Most people feel they are underpaid

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate, take time to talk to those you manage and get to know them
    Managers need to give more responsibility to the associates
