    Pros

    Decent pay, comfortable work environment, and great benefits. They have a great commitment to helping their employees advance.

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime and little flexibility with schedule. We worked in a 24 hour call center and the indivialts who responded to our schedule adjustment (vacation, sick time, etc) were in another state, which made for communication challenging.

    Advice to Management

    more flexibility with the demanding schedule

    Great Co-Workers
    Great location
    Great benefits
    I enjoyed the bosses I worked for
    Great Corporate Structure

    Cons

    I did not have a bad experience. Everything about the organization was professional and I could not have asked for a better experience

    Advice to Management

    Management could have been more organized. Due to the amount of different compliance groups, management was a little bit out of flux.
