    My work was always appreciated by management and supervisors, even when improvements were needed.

    Bilingual Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsThey have some great benefits. There are many opportunities for growth throughout the company...in various parts of the US and around the world.

    ConsExcept for some very restrictive cases, one would lose all unused PTO by the end of the fiscal year. It's not the worst thing in the world, but there is not much that I could find wrong with the company as an employer.

    Excellent company that's growing despite the bad economy

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThis company recognizes and appreciates hard work and dedicated employees. They encourage you to find your own level so to speak and have no problem with you applying for higher paying jobs that open up within the company.

    ConsThere is a tendency to establish workloads at the absolute maximum load you can handle...and sometimes more. While they are good at the things that make up their core business, they are flat out terrible at some of the ancillary employee services. Onboarding process is very weak and you are left to flounder around on your own until your colleagues help you out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHR needs to spend more personal one-on-one time with new employees and walk them through the processes. A single phone conference or Go-to-Meeting is not enough. There is no excuse for IT to take so long to get new hires access to application programs. No one should sit around for a week waiting to be able to start working.

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

    Going nowhere fast

    Solid development environment with excellent people

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) Shelton, CT

    ProsThey had an established QA department with great Quality people.

    Architecture Group to direct the efforts of the developers.

    ConsNo room to grow or expand your role. There was a very flat structure with one project manager/personnel manager over 20 developers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate more opportunities for advancement.

    Decent place to work...probably a good place as a stepping stone.

    IT Department (Current Employee) Canton, MA

    ProsWorking in IT you will be exposed to a lot of the new technologies. Since there is quite a bit of acquisition work and growth is primarily in the US, a lot of new technology is being implemented. Work/Life balance is good here and vacation time is decent.

    ConsBonuses...well let's just say you better build it into your salary because apparently they are non-existent...regardless of what HR tells you..or your recruiter...they are just not there. That being said, just build that into your salary and hopefully you'll continue to be a motivated employee year over year. Of course, as a result...people learn cutting edge tech and there's no bonus...so naturally in IT it seems like a revolving door with employees in and out quite often.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue employees and drive up retention rates by offering small bonuses or spot bonuses. Not giving bonuses to employees while month after month management goes out to dinner does not drive up employee morale...and neither does bringing in expats with large expense accounts for positions that could have been filled by great performing local employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
