    Pros

    competitive salaries, good benefits, high quality employees. Company is on the rise and the premier employer in Kansas City

    Cons

    demanding work schedules during busy times. Annual review/raise process is setup highly in the company's favor.

    Advice to Management

    consider revising annual review policy and how associates are recognized and given promotions/raises. Otherwise, great job.

    Pros

    Great insurance and benefits. Love the gym and the healthy living culture - talk walks in the afternoon with co workers, go to lunchtime gym classes, healthy cafe. Large company with international opportunities

    Cons

    The building I work in is not the best. Think soul crushing cubicles in the basement.

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance. This company really does CARE about it's employees. This is a company where your efforts are rewarded. Working hard is appreciated and rewarded.

    Cons

    The only con..working as a virtual (remote) associate you miss a lot of the 'ad hoc' meetings that take place on a day to day basis.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep the associates involved and listening to your clients!

    Pros

    The company has a good culture.

    Cons

    Beware of the cost of health insurance. A $2,500 individual deductible, $4,600 per family, must be meet for any medical expense INCLUDING medicine. I paid $2,500 out-of-pocket in my first two months.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your health insurance benefits. For some associates with a chronic medical condition who are on the low end of the pay scale are harmed by your policies.

  9. Good company overall, great potential for success, ever growing
