I have been working at BenefitMall full-time (less than a year)Pros
When I received the first initial call from the HR recruiter she was professional however, she still showed that she had personality and everything she was telling me was not being scripted. From initial call to start date, it took about a week. My first week of work was spent in the Franklin, Tennessee office which is where my boss is located. They paid (not reimbursed; paid) for my flight, hotel and rental car. I also appreciated that I wasn't put in cheap hotel or reserved a vehicle that was only large enough to fit my carry-on in and whatever dignity I brought with me either. My boss gives instruction when needed, guidance when requested and praise when necessary. Very knowledgeable and great at what he does. He is not an advocate of micro-managing.
During my first few weeks, my work supplies (laptop, monitors, ect.) were new and ready upon my first day. After my first week I came back to Dallas and was able to meet the rest of the team. It is a very diverse environment and I enjoy it. Being able to park in a garage especially now is a plus as well. The different divisions within the I.T. field are mixed with different personalities but all get along well. My bosses boss (V.P. of Infrastructure) is very professional and knows a great deal about technology & BBQ. I also met with a few people from HR including the one who recruited me; and she is a great recruiter and I do love her.
After a month here, our CIO (my bosses bosses boss) asked to have a lunch with the new hires in her department. Initially, I was a little intimidated. After sitting at a table and hearing her talk and interact with each of us it was clear that she didn't consider us as seat fillers but vital instruments in the company.
In our department they encourage initiative, creativity and are ok with new ideas and better processes. There is always work to be done which is also a plus. Job security.Cons
The elevators. I am convinced the elevators purposely take an impressive amount of time after they are called. A lot of time. Not all of the time, but a lot of the time
Advice to management:
I deal with upper management on a daily basis and to be honest, I think they are good people. They will actually speak to you when they pass you in the hall, they do care when they ask "How are you doing?" and are very approachable.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
