    Pros

    My co-workers were awesome. The were an excellent resource. Most were friends and allies. Many are college graduates who, like me, were stuck in a call center due to a bad economy.

    Cons

    Close, dirty, cramped quarters. Desk sharing. Inadequate facilities and inadequate parking. Strict zero tolerance policies. If they see a cellphone or if you access the internet, you're as good as gone without warning. You feel like a prisoner and they treat everyone like criminals. The only jobs worth having are team lead or manager because at least they are treated as a sub-humans.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up. Never correct or discipline an employee in front of co-workers. Hire a better cleaning staff and quit skimping on resources like desks, chairs, cubicles, parking spaces, etc. Never fire an employee for a first offense violation.

    Pros

    Good money and training. Learned alot and meet some great people. Had a chance to work on a few clients so learned ins and outs.

    Downsizing happened far too often, if you weren't in the clique you were let go. Without warning you lost your job, same people, same results.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites.
