    Former Employee - Payroll Specialist in Saint Petersburg, FL

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Not 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    None!!!! Very poorly ran company I wish there was something positive to say.

    Cons

    Dont 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    In 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.

    Cons

    There 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.

    Pros

    Local, free parking with some spaces covered, secure building protected from bad neighborhood

    Cons

    Management talks in circles, spends team money living at Vinoy, always hiring as all of the knowledge that is gained leaves, job scales and ranges are secret based on who you know not what you know. No salary bands so job can range from 42,000.00 to 120,000. No management training or mentoring, no bandwidth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reduce the middle management and backfill all of the open CSA,SDA,SDM positions. Headquarters open your eyes to what your current management is not. Now that the master of pulling the wool over your eyes has left to the UK, check the lost sheep that he left behind as they are just wandering more blindly then ever.

    Pros

    Smaller company can move on opportunities quickly, aggressive new management, smart people at the very top

    Cons

    culture has been eviscerated by change, small startup leadership now running a much larger organization than they are used to

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the changes that are strategic imperatives to maintain buy-in from 'legacy' employees. Remove 'culture-destroying' managers to really prove that things will be different going forward.
