    Disappointing

    Anonymous (Current Employee)

    ProsStarting out, the pay is good

    ConsThere is a lack of communication between managers and employees. Managers do not speak directly to their team about issues they are having; before taking matters to HR. The environment can be very childish and adults get treated like children. There is a bunch of double standards. Employees do not feel comfortable approaching managers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagers should be able to do what their team is doing so that they can help the team. Managers need to be evaluated by team members because many abuse their power and do not adhere to rules which they want employees to follow. Many managers are incompetent and there is no one to communicate that without retaliation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsAble to WFH, Flexible hours, Friendly colleagues

    Easy calls, no hours

    Work At Home Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Eustis, FL

    Proseasygoing customers, they are calling in mainly to make camping reservations, so most are in good moods, easy computer programs to learn, friendly coworkers and mgrs

    Consslow systems, only get good hours once a month when a certain park goes on sale. otherwise you are lucky if you get more than 12 hrs a week.

    Advice to Senior Managementupgrade your systems, the programs are easy to use, when they will load. I have 30mbps internet speed, but the programs still took ages to load a page. Makes it difficult to get through a cust call.

    Wonderful co-workers, new direction has shifted to a cash mill

    Technical Account Manager (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsWonderful employees on your side, decent management. Decent benefits, and the Activex program. This used to be a great company to work for!

    ConsAlmost no training, no support, your list of responsibilities will grow exponentially, and your pay will stay the same. New equity company that purchased active has zero interest in its employees, the product or its clients. Stay away during this time of transition to Dallas.
