    I worked at Affinion Benefits Group as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I liked the location, the environment and opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    Everyone was also so busy - I believe the fact that they cut out a lot of departments developed over-working employees that remained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be an encouragement to reward employees who over-achieve.

    I have been working at Affinion Benefits Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company provides good compensation plans and provides upward mobility through promotions and new opportunities; mainly due to the large number of layoffs and downsizing.

    Cons

    There is no job security anywhere within the organization; senior management has no long term plans for growth or stability, they manage one month at a time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your key employees, they have the customers and company's best interest at heart.

    I worked at Affinion Benefits Group full-time

    Pros

    They have occasional fun employee events

    Cons

    layoffs every year - no loyalty to employees
    No sense of direction- management is not organized and everyone tells you to do things differently.
    Products offered are questionable when it comes to the law
    Office is a witch hunt - watch your back as it seems people are always trying to get others in trouble to make themselves look better
    No formal training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit spending money on beer and alcohol and instead make the company more secure for your employees. Also start acting more professional and quit fighting among yourselves

    I worked at Affinion Benefits Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Vacation and time off. Medical was good as well. Pay was average.

    Cons

    Very clickish in many areas. Too many corporate politics. You go out with the boys when they want you to go out with them and you will move up. Lots of layoffs. They tell you they aren't preparing for layoffs, get prepared, that is always a prelude to a layoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to everyone on your team. Block out gossip. Stop spending all of your budgets on drinking and partying for the teams. Reward team members monetarily. It will keep the drama out of the departments.

    Pros

    Benefits are good. If you are one of the chosen few in management, you've got it made.

    Cons

    They make you think you are the greatest thing since sliced bread and then you eventually find out few are ever allowed to stay there. They have frequent layoffs although they will hold meetings and tell people to their faces they are not getting ready to lay anyone off.

    This company is run by Conservative Republicans and they make no bones about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the politics. Stop spending so much money on alcohol and lavish business tips. Start rewarding those who have been making you money.

  10. Operations Manager Review

    I have been working at Affinion Benefits Group

    Pros

    The people seem really nice and the benefits are really great! Company seems to know their market and be extremely successful with that they do.

    Cons

    There are a lot of inefficiencies and room for improvement of processes. Don't expect this company to be up on technology any time soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could be more profitable if they improve processes and illiminate waste. This will definitely be a process over time and not everyone will likely accept this as positve but it likely needed to move company forward.

    Pros

    Affinion as a company is a solid company with good time off plan and benefits.

    Cons

    My department seems to be the black sheep of the company. Room for growth is limited. Upper management is unreasonable and not very knowledgable. Morale overall is very low in the whole department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all departments the same and do not let management create such low morale in certain departments.
