    Pros

    This was a great place to work. I worked at the Red Road Branch and My managers and colleagues were an awesome team. It was a fast paced environment, but we all worked together to run the branch smoothly. My manager Usha was the sweetest and most down to earth women. Javier, our branch manager was also very pleasant and would brew coffee for us every morning. It felt more like coming in to work with a team then just a normal job. The company overall had a lot of incentives that made your daily job more important. you were awarded for good work and were recognized. When the company decided to sell it's branched due to the falling housing crises, they were very considerate to their employees. The employees were given a 30 day noticed and the option to continue to work until we closed or to leave and find a new job. We were also given severance packages.

    Cons

    Due to the economy, the Bank was sold and a bulk of the staff were laid-off. This would have been an awesome career if the Bank did not close.

    Pros

    It was a paycheck and you had to leave at 5pm each day (no overtime allowed) so there was that.

    Cons

    Atmosphere was terrible. Management openly encouraged hostility towards consultants with the full-time developers. Managers repeatedly referred to contractors as 'resources' and not by name and when they did bother to call you by your name - mispronounced it - after you were there a YEAR. No effort made to work together - constant struggle if working with full-time developers to get requirements or any assistance cause there was a fear you would take their job (and a resentment you probably made more than they did, etc. which mgmt enjoyed keeping alive.) So yeah - it was pretty awful, but paid my bills for a year so...

    Advice to Management

    Retire.

    Learn that consultants have feelings too and if you want an efficient / productive workplace - you need to stop nonsense and micromanaging people and let them use their talents.

    Being in IT we were on call a lot. So work/life balance was not the best.

    They promote from within
    Investment in employee growth
    Fun team based environment
    Great perks, benefits, and

    Cons

    No real cons other than they unfortunately were a victim of the housing crises. If they were still around it would be a great place to work.

    Pros

    The hiring process is pretty easy, the only thing you have to is breathe and you got the job. Locations are very accessible around the South Florida area.

    Cons

    You don't get awarded for anything you do that is above standard, the growth protential is tottaly out the window, so forget about making this a career.

    Advice to Management

    You guys need to start concertrating on employee moral, because they are the ones that are driving this company. Also, management should be more educated, I worked there going through school and now that I'm graduated and moved on to a corporate level position with ATI Enterprises and see a big difference in professionalism.
