    Upper Management needs to get off perch and really see what's going on!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsUsed to be a great company in the 90's and early 2000's. The VP's and all Upper Mgmt. used to care about Assoc. Sat and providing quality service to the Clients.

    ConsThey only care about stockholders and bonuses. The employees are overworked, underpaid and have an extreme lack of resources. Emp. are extremely stressed and have no security in their jobs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease, Please look at what's really going on. Stop worrying about the stockholders and start caring about your employees again. If you do they will be so much more productive.

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

    Could be a Great Company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFinally starting to break away from the legacy systems and programs that have held them back for years.
    Great Senior Leadership is starting to make a difference for this company.
    They released their first new product in over a decade recently and hopefully that is just the tip of the iceburg.

    Conssubpar benefits package - they really should consider their employees not just the stock share price.
    constant layoffs
    more focused on hiring overpriced "talent" in CA than developing the loyal talent they already have.

    Advice to Senior Managementstart valuing your employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Interesting but challenging

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsContinued re-invention of company focus with interesting product innovation. Some smart people. Opportunity to learn if you're a self starter. Strong client base. Some positions offer flexible work hours and ability to work from home.

    ConsLack of common vision, integration and cooperation across lines of business creates friction and limits value to customers, and stockholders.
    Continued re-organization and employee turnover creates challenge in getting things done.

    You are never sure of your job even if you do excellent work.

    Software Test Engineer (Former Employee) Conway, AR

    ProsVery flexible. Decent salary for Arkansas.

    ConsWorked there for 21 1/2 years, every year I had an excellent review. Was told on Feb 27 that my last day of work was Feb 28. They are NOT loyal to their employees at all!

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more sensitive to your employees and be as loyal to them as they are to the company.

    Good learning experience, difficult dealing with management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people, the camaraderie, start-up environment/spirit

    ConsClassic larger company bureaucracy, mismanagement, cost cutting, lack of direction

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed better leadership, more commitment to work-life balance and personal growth. Letting an office drift while the company came up with its game-plan was not a positive outcome.

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