    Pros

    I love this company! Everyone here works so well together. I really feel the HR department does an excellent job of selecting individuals with positive personalities that add diversity and dimension to the team environment. Senior level management spends a lot of time training and developing staff. The CFO is truly interested in educating and offering growth opportunities. Each member of management has their own strengths and leadership styles, which absolutely translates to growth for the staff and the organization.

    The projects I'm assigned are challenging and rewarding.

    I think the owner of the company is inspirational.

    Cons

    The company has an excellent PTO policy, but the other benefits aren't great, and the compensation doesn't really make up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe try to get a better benefit package. Otherwise, you guys are doing an amazing job.

    NONE. THe worst place I have ever worked.

    Pros

    It used to be a nice place to work. The training dept was great and the management team were very supportive and wanted you to succeed. They had picnics and christmas parties and then all of sudden everything stopped.

    Cons

    It became a very difficult place to work .policies and procedures changed daily.management opinions of you would change daily . There were no more picnics or Christmas functions and then raises stopped .it was like a nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    Please remember people want to feel good about going to work.they are not lines on a balance sheet.

    Pros

    What can I say that is positive about this company? Not much.

    Cons

    Don't expect a raise - even a cost of living increase. The last 5 years of my employment there I never received an increase. And they will expect you to do anything and everything under the sun without even providing acquit training. Not a very professional company.

    Advice to Management

    At least provide a cost of living increase. And some positive feedback about job performance would be appreciated.

    Pros

    It was a paycheck, I took a week's vacation and I didn't have to talk to customers. Other than that, I can't think of anything else that was positive.

    Cons

    Where to begin? I worked for this company way back in 2004 and it was a terrible experience. There were some nice people that worked there, but the atmosphere there bought out the worst in those people, myself included. I dreaded going to that place everyday. I was embarrassed to be associated with this company due to the dishonesty and bad press that the CEO received.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to somebody that is honest and will treat people like human beings.

    Pros

    It used to be a very exciting place to work The Training staff was top notch and all levels of management were very helpful and supportive and wanted you to succeed.

    Cons

    Recently they are not as supportive to their employees as they used to me and it appears that the company is closing down slowly . Some Management staff left or were forced out and it makes people wonder what next .

    Advice to Management

    please remember that employees are not just lines on a balance sheet .

    Pros

    At one time it was a great place to work. They had a great training program and the people were very positiive.

    Cons

    Policies and procedures changed everyday. When you see people leave or get forced out you can sense that something is wrong. This environment creates a lot of fear in regard to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Dont forget that employees are people not numbers.

    It would help if management would be more encouraging and motivating.
