    Pros

    Great office in Okemos, MI. Cafeteria, small gym, lots of office space, nice work cubicles. PTO combined vacation/sick days, paid major holidays. Very Good medical/dental/vision benefits. Defined pension, 2% per year up to 30 years. IT is going through a major transformation, looking to hire full time employee's to replace contractors, which is quite the switcheroo from the last 25 years. I see some good things ahead and my employment there was nothing short of sunshine and happy days. It's all about the attitude you bring.

    Cons

    As with any medium to large company, change is slow, it is taking over a year and a half to implement the new changes in IT. Very unsettling to current employee's, but I hope the brighter side is not too far away.

    Advice to Management

    Own your decisions, you were part of the process. There are some very talented people that are under utilized there, I hope you can take advantage of some of the talent you have in the affiliates that are part of your goals and don't discount them just because they come from a different state/geographic area. Good ideas always come around again, I have the loss of hair to prove it. Best of Luck to all my friends and co-workers, it was a great ride!!

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, and everyone is very friendly and willing to help if needed. Managers were never in your face or tried to stick their nose where it doesn't belong.

    Cons

    The material is super dry and gets very boring easily.

    Pros

    If you got in on the prior contract you received good pay. Union based job. Benefits. Team meetings. Holiday parties. Every few months pay for free lunch. Clean building. Over all friendly people. More people close to retiring so more jobs are opening. The type of job you can retire from. Easy going. Gives new employees ample enough time to learn system. good location off major high way! Nice supervisors. They try to make it ease for everyone! Company bonus ever year. Good HR. Overtime at time and a half. Certain times of year its all the over time you want! Say what you want they are a fair company in my opinion they really try to make it even for the workers and them selves.

    Cons

    Only three 15 minute breaks. No time to eat lunch or rest my between calls. Cant leave the property. Cant take any time off between January and March. If you just grind it out your shift you should be good. And oh yeah don't get caught up in the floor gossip. come to work do your shift you and you should be good. There are also a lot of spoiled workers who complain a lot. If you are not working and you need a job just be grateful or just use this job as a stepping stone you get about a total of 1 month off in PTO for the year so you have plenty of hours to take off to interview else where. If your not happy just leave! Quit trying to suck me into your unhappiness! (In defense there are a lot of happy workers too!) I personally like the place! Seniority rules not based on your work efforts. If your the "low man on the totem pole" you are just that the "low man on the totem pole" until some new people get hired!

    Advice to Management

    If you could figure out ways to add another 15 minute break just to let the mind rest for a while I'm sure the workers would be more happy. By the time we get down stairs to the lunch room 5 minutes already gone and try to heat up your lunch and if you have to go the bath room and get back upstairs and eat your food. Its a bit much. How about three 20 minute breaks or two 25 minute breaks. Outside of that you guys are great. Thank you very much I enjoyed my time working with you. Oh yeah by us working for the actual company it would be nice if the dental ins went up from 1500 to 2000 per year! Employees should have the best plans!

    Pros

    they have a very good benefit program with competitive salaries. Flex time is available to most employees . Nice work environment, with friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    Upper management were always working to try and out perform one another instead of trying to work together and get things done. They would often step over one another to ultimately get what the highest rank wanted. It should have started there to begin with,

    Advice to Management

    Most of my supervisors were female, myself male. It seemed as though they were trying to belittle me every instant they could. watch for discrimination accusations if it doesn't stop.
