    Pros

    Work environment is what you want to make it, on the road, remote or in office. Clear reporting requirements.

    Cons

    Client lacks solid communication wit respect to expectations and or goals. This "soft" position makes it difficult to understand what tasks you will be evaluated on.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication from Client and drive them to provide clear and concise direction to the entire account. Work to decrease or eliminate managing thru individual comments on projects.

  8. I liked it, my division was sold off. To another in Florida.

    in Florida most of us were let go.

    Pros

    We have excellents Medical benefits in addition to 401k which I love.

    Cons

    My only issue is for some employees that work in Client Services/Property/Facilities Management (non-Corporate) with certain accounts, that their unable to get raises, bonuses, and/or promotions. I feel this is unfair after working so hard and diligently, dealing with sometimes tedious and "high risk" work for the clients after years of service, We also are unable to receive the "perks" of that of a Corporate C&W employee.
