    Good company depending on which branch you work out of.

    Account Developer (Former Employee)
    Fayetteville, NC

    ProsGood advancement opportunities. Quality co-workers. Company integrity. Decent benefits.

    ConsInconsistent management. Long hours. Some goals were set in contrast to other goals where failure was almost assured in one category or another.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your people in the trenches. Understand that the blanket approach is not always the best approach.

    Was worth working here to get my foot in the door of the job world.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat work/life, If I needed off for any reason my boss would let me go, 15min breaks along with 30min lunches.

    ConsIf it is a small CCBCC then goodluck getting a full time job there, as the smallers ones usually have 1 full time guy and like 10 part time guys avg 20-30hours a week.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Absolutely no work-life balance.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    ProsFrom my experience, the pay has been at decent levels.

    ConsFrank Harrison is a Christ-believer, and he has boldly added God-honoring values to the company's mission statement. I strongly agree with this move. However, God-honoring values are not lived-out in the company. The employees are extremely overworked. The company will not hire more people because it would cut into the financial bottom line. (How much money does Frank Harrison need?) Frank may not realize how bad the work environment is at the office. He does not make himself seen to the common employees. This is no excuse. He should be more in-tuned to the employees and the demands of the various jobs. Requiring salaried employees to work 65 or more hours a week is not a honorable requirement or work atmosphere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRead and follow the mission statement, daily.

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

    ProsWidely recognized brand. It is a good stepping stone. Boss was a good one and was always willing to help.

    ConsGood ol' boys club attitudes. Computer system is archaic and you would think that a large company like this would have current technology.
