    Pros

    Great environment, on the tech side its not so stressed,. Flexible schedule, decent benefits and good community feel. Great for needing experience or want steady job going into retirement.

    Cons

    If you're looking for quick job growth (atleast on the tech side) this isn't it. The tech job branch is very limited so you can hit flat spot in your growth. As a SCS for this year only 12 or so HW Systems Analyst positions opened up this year. The pay isn't as competitive, but its a trade off. Calm work life for the steady pay. I have managed to get a 2% raise every year since I started. If applying come in demanding more or you wont progress salary as fast.

    I'm 28 years old, started when I was 24 out of college so I'm trying to continue my growth. I truly enjoy my time here but now that I've gained relevant experience I am looking for salary growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to maintain talent more competitive pay would be nice. I do understand that where one falls 20 are waiting to take its place. Thats good for company and share holders, but sucks when working on delivery for client. I'm only talking from tech perspective as a SCS.

    Pros

    The pay was good for a call center. Weekends off is always great! There is always help available from managers and coworkers as well. They have potlucks and other activities throughout the year to keep you motivated. Good Training.

    Cons

    Everything is closely monitored as far as performance on calls. ATTENDANCE POLICY SUCKS, VERY STRICT ON ATTENDANCE and they do not work with schedules as far as school etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Years ago, they gave me an opportunity to start a career in insurance.

    I worked at Aon Hewitt full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fair and honest with handling claims. Very good benefits - time off, insurance benefits, etc. Challenging and interesting work in life and disability claims.

    Cons

    Although some managers were good, some were not good at all. Difficult to advance within the company due to limited openings in management tier jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider who you are hiring for management - whether they are truly qualified and able to be the right kind of "people person".
