    Salary, benefits , team atmosphere.

    Favoritism, and unethical practices. By employees overlooked by mngmt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have goals that are set , follow thru .Check on those that over-exceed them. Not only them but their mngmt. and don't be blinded by quantity look for quality. Only ones that suffer is the, Company Reputation and those that play by the book and any new recruits that appreciate the opportunity.

    Pros

    You are well taken care of, good benefits, a lot of opportunities to advance, pay matrix is good

    Cons

    Customer satisfaction is important, but there is a limit to everything, you push to hard and someone or something will push back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive management needs to visit the front line employees more often and learn from them the problems they face. There is a lot happening that you never hear about, because Senior Management blocks it from you, but never fixes it.
