    Too unstable

    Payroll Specialist (Former Employee) Saint Petersburg, FL

    ProsThe job paid pretty good for an entry level position. The company provides a good amount of benefits. A number of activities on campus to keep employees involved and active.

    ConsNot enough training. And the training doesn't prepare you good enough for the work you actually do. After about 4-5 months on the job there were things I still didn't know how to do. Knowledge base needed to do job was borderline useless. Long hours. Inability to pick desired schedule. Only given a 30 minute lunch. Not given enough help on the job. Having your phone calls timed and monitored.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more help for workers on the job. At time the managers were reluctant to provide assistance when requested leaving us to flounder.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Was Great ... But Then it Wasn't

    Anonymous (Former Employee) Fountain Valley, CA

    ProsGood work-life balance, great co-workers and dedicated employees and great benefits, including vacation time. Most managers very flexible with work schedule. Opportunity to work on exciting projects to advance skill set. Training provided for most positions.

    ConsWas a great place to work until 3 or 4 years ago. Changing of top management, who brings their friends into the company so priorities constantly change and projects are cancelled. Then another management team is brought in and the cycle starts again. Combining departments, changing management - middle managers being hired right and left with no clue how the business runs and don't know how to relate to others, either in office or remotely. No teamwork between business units. Limited advancement. No recognition in later years - not even a "thank you, job well done." Constantly driving off or laying off talented employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou had a great company then let it go. Train employees and managers how to relate to others, especially when working and managing remotely. Make decisions with information from employees, not from those who don't understand how the business works. And stop driving off your most talented employees.

    Poor Choices

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI've met some interesting, smart and talented people, worked for some great managers and have learned a lot during my tenure.

    ConsLeadership is concentrated on the bottom line, to the detriment of the employees. They have cut back on employee benefits and perks although they try to make it appear otherwise. They will continue to lose customers and employees if they don't stop and look at the internal problems that continue to fester.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe leadership team needs to quickly learn how to work together or else they will continue to lose valuable employees and further ruin the company's reputation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a great company, not the worst.

    Service Delivery Analyst (Current Employee) Saint Petersburg, FL

    ProsIn my department, there is a high level of autonomy, my co-workers are great, and our managers are very supportive. I've heard that is not necessarily the case in all departments. The compensation is not terrible and the benefits are ok. My management team is very understanding that life happens and encourages a good work/life balance. They are very flexible; as long as the work is getting done they pretty much leave you alone.

    ConsThere is not much collaboration or team work between departments. Everyone is too focused on who is to blame rather than fixing the problem. There is a serious lack of training and high turnover. They have just finally implemented some career pathing, but it is not communicated and I have only seen info for sales positions. There is very little company culture, at least in this location.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    One the worst HCM companies to work for

    Sales Representative (Former Employee) Saint Petersburg, FL

    ProsNone!!!! Very poorly ran company I wish there was something positive to say.

    ConsDont trust the unskilled upper management. Very poor salary vs. Other HCM companies. Seen some of the best sales pro's asked to leave even when they are top producers

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet real sales managers that actually can and have sold anythung. Need to lead by example

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    This was a valuable experience that furthered my professional development.

    Employee Assistance Case Manager (Former Employee) Bloomington, MN

    ProsI had the chance to work with a team of accomplished employee assistance professionals. I felt proud of the work I did there with the client companies. It is always a privilege to help employees be better employees.

    ConsManagement changed several times, which had some impact on the flow of the work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the working team's feedback about process improvements.
