    Pros

    Our big boss. He would walk around the call center area and greet you and asked how you were doing. He wasn't just our big boss who watched over our supervisors and kept himself in his office. He really cared for each person.

    Cons

    The office drama that happens in a work place.

    Advice to Management

    Always make yourself known to everyone and show that you care, and in return your employees will care too. Always make sure your supervisors are always available when someone needs them.
