    Pros

    Key strengths: financial strength and stability, core belief in what we do and how we want do it, interesting mix of work, exciting and challenging time.

    Cavalry’s core competencies enable the company to compete in an increasingly regulated and consolidating industry and provide opportunity for personal growth and development. Cavalry’s Partners (privately owned) are sophisticated, prudent entrepreneurs. They capitalize on best practices of the past and recognize that businesses need to be agile to meet the needs of the future.

    Cons

    Developing culture in a challenging industry (debt collections). Difficult to attract employees to build the desired culture due in part to the stigma of the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve organizational communication and support of the core values

    Pros

    If you are able to meet the standards. You can work here for a long time. Commission is uncapped and if you can perform. You can make money.

    Cons

    Compensation needs to be improved upon, they teach you about collections but lack negotiation training that will help you succeed. Management can be unfocused and lack direction. Information does not translate well between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Increase compensation, let your leaders lead and have a positive attitude.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. No one really knows what they are doing so it is easy to fit in as a new employee.

    Cons

    This company has been around for over 10 years yet still seems brand new. The management team at this company lacks professionalism and knowledge. It's difficult to work with a manager that knows less than you. They have a handful of managers that only received their title because of they made friends with the right people, not because they actually know what they are doing. They are over paid and under qualified. I would never recommend this company to anyone. You will not be valued, you will not be challenged and you will not be properly compensated. Stay away!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to the owners... Get people that will represent your company in a positive way, that are knowledgeable and helpful. No one wants to work in a company that does not add value to their work experience. I know for me it was a vacation from a real job. This job was a no brainer!

    Pros

    Nothing good about them; there is nothing good about the company.

    Cons

    They do not employees and they just throw them so they can easily pick on whom they want to get rid of. It is a very discriminatory company and built on severe prejudice and hate

    Advice to Management

    Be fair and good to your employees

    Pros

    They paid me every two weeks.
    Made me work even harder to find a challenging legitimate position with another company.

    Cons

    1. No room for growth although during the interview process they will tell you how there are so many opportunities to move around within the company
    2. The corporate culture is borderline abusive. If you have a difference of opinion from your superior you are told that you have a negative attitude. If you have a legitimate question about procedure and actually try to ask it it can be considered as being negative. I was once told " not to question things and you are to do what you are told [blindly]"
    3. The office environment reminded me of high school where the senior staff would gang up on powerless subordinates in and effort to demean and demoralize their work.
    4. There is no room to be promoted or to excel.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is hire managers that are knowledgeable in how to manage people. Management is not just a title. Just because your title states you are the Vice President of [Name of Department] does not mean that you are qualified to do your job. In fact most people in positions of power at this company are not qualified to do their job. They ended up in their positions because they happen to be there. Nobody with a brain would continue to work for a company where the generalized feeling is every day is your last day.

    Pros

    Bonuses can be good but largely based on luck. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Not sure what essential job functions were as they were constantly changing. Layoffs and disconnect with upper management was stressful to deal with always wondering if the next meeting would be your last.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent, make sure supervisors know what employees need to do. Keep employees filled in on big picture.
