    Beneficial for further experience on my resume.

    Customer Care Specialist (Current Employee)

    ProsThe office culture is well designed for a call center environment. The office is comfortable for the amount of associates working in the office. Also, the company offers good benefits quickly.

    ConsThe standards for the client continue to increase making many associates frustrated by the inability to do well enough by the client on a day by day basis.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease treat your associates with respect. Assist your associates in acheiving their goals. Treating others well will become beneficial when you need assistance.

    Started off promising...ended up "blah"

    Processing Specialist (Former Employee)
    Florence, SC

    ProsGreat coworkers! Excellent and in depth training! Potential to be a 4-5 star rated company.

    ConsWork-life balance on a scale of 1-10....3. "mandatory overtime" and my old supervisor said once in a meeting, "we get paid what we are worth". So the con here is upper management does not know how to relate to people in a positive manner. The room for growth is little. I could not volunteer with my site's IT department(wanted to help w/o pay..just wanted to learn more). Stayed at that job for 11 months and did the same exact thing everyday..no cross-training, lots of micromanaging, and there was NO SUCH thing as privacy for the lower level employee. I happily left to accept a position within my field of study. Now i'm getting paid what I'm worth...if not more :)

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpeak to people with respect. Help others obtain goals and not just your goals. Make the meetings meaningful and not a waste of time for those who don't need to be there. Place the best workers in the area they will succeed in and take those who won't do so well out of the areas they are struggling in. Most importantly learn the job before you try to manage the job.

    Great Place for Students Looking to Add Business Experience to Their Resume. Excellent Paid Time Off and Benefits.

    Hazard Insurance Specialist III (Former Employee)
    Springfield, OH

    ProsExcellent benefits and paid time off. I had about 4 weeks of vacation time.

    ConsIt can be difficult to advance if you don't make the right connections. Promotions can be based on favoritism.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage more of an open door policy. Engage with employees more and find out what their true goals are. There seems to be a disconnect between upper management and hourly associates. Offer better management training programs to those that wish to take a leadership role.
