    Pros

    You have the ability to keep busy and offer suggestions for increased productivity. There are a variety of employees from all walks of life to interact with.

    Cons

    There is a lack of understanding how individual job roles influence the productivity of the whole organization. Undocumented job responsibilities and training and no accountability/disciplinary action. Layoffs are frequent for lower wage staff who are the backbone and results producer; which results in morale instability.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what lower wage staff do and how to document and support them. Without their careful, precise, error-free work production, there would not be a business. A downward-spiraling domino effect is created when lower wage employees are ignored.

    Pros

    You can get away with murder. Go ahead, screw around all day. Management doesn't manage. Hard to get fired.

    Cons

    They lie to you. The management will say they haven't gotten a raise in years. They pile more work on you and god forbid if you stand up for yourself. They take advantage of their people and use them until they quit in disgust. This company does not care. If you have any self respect, this place will erode it until you dread every weekday and spend your breaks plotting how you'll quit but you never will because what else is there? The pay is a joke, but it's a job. You'll need two jobs because you can't live off this one.

    Advice to Management

    I would say give your people a regular raise system, review them as individuals, get rid of the dead weight employees and appreciate the good ones before they're gone forever. Lose all the current management and get some people in there who know what they're doing.

    Pros

    The pay was decent for entry level position.

    Cons

    The company was on the decline. Several employees quit the company within the first two weeks I worked there. Management had no background in regards to the actual operations of the company.

    Pros

    Prime location for public transportation, flexible hours, ability to gain experience by cross training in multiple production areas, great benefit package, ability for advancement for employees that step up to prove their abilities

    Cons

    If you are an employee that comes to work and completes the tasks that are requested the only con is the pay rate. The work is easy, weeks of training is not needed.

    You'll find better opportunities for growth at a Mc Donald's.. Worst job I've ever had, period.

    Pros

    Convenient location for those living in Scranton, specifically those without a vehicle who access to a bus route. Always hiring, some friendly employees, 1st and 2nd shift available. Most work is low-impact (some lifting involved in mailroom and courier positions). Reasonable amount of vacation.

    Cons

    Incredibly stressful work environment. Ineffective uncaring management. Low pay with ever-increasing responsibility all while offering the employee little to no opportunity for a raise, bonus or promotion of any kind. Proper training procedures (often weeks-long courses) were done away with years ago in an attempt to save a few dollars, so it is a common occurrence to see temps and other low-level employees giving one another five minute crash courses on procedural operations. Most managers I dealt with were disrespectful, unprofessional, catty, overly punitive and were hardly if ever proactive in helping their employees. Things were rarely explained properly to those with questions or concerns, and mid-level management had a nasty habit of piling THEIR work onto temps or low-level employees who made the mistake of showing initiative. You -will- be expected to work OVERTIME HOURS for NO OVERTIME PAY. Management will force you to work 10-12 hours on certain days then force you to leave early on others in order to "decrease spend". Developing your skills and talents at this company will ultimately be useless to you, I can practically guarantee it. In addition, the equipment and programs in use are outdated and have often fallen into disrepair, the offices, restrooms and break rooms aren't kept properly clean, and certain departments are left without proper management of any kind to fend for themselves past certain hours.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Stop treating people like cattle. Give a few performance-related incentives once in awhile. Have your accounting department look at your base rate for new hires VS what the majority of employees who have been there for 3-5 plus years are making - you have TEMPS earning more than most of these people do. Your QUALITY will improve once your RETENTION RATE does. Your company has such an insanely high turnover rate because you treat those in your employ like dirt no matter how hard they work. You have talented and experienced employees at your disposal, APPRECIATE THEM and they will reward you with many years of great service. WORK ON THAT.

    Pros

    Insurance benefits and 2 weeks vacation

    Cons

    No raises in 4 years, MORE work and responsibilities given to you but no rewards. Disrespect from supervisors. Management is pretty much inhumane. They don't care about you at all. No Christmas bonuses, no appreciation at ALL.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They know the work and what goes on . My supervisor does not even know how to do my job !!!

    Pros

    3 weeks time off to start and you basically can do whatever you like as long as you complete projects on time. You can work from home and / or make up your own hours as long as you put in your 40 a week and complete assignments on time. Everyone within the company is friendly, even upper management.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible. Nobody has had a raise in over 3 years. Company has been making changes and there have been a lot of layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better and start some sort of employee discount program.

    Pros

    Close to town and buses, if you didn't drive.

    Alway hiring - which is also a bad indicator.

    1-week paid maternity leave for the father of a baby that was just born -- somethign that is not normally found elsewhere.

    Gain vacation time in advance, something like 90 hrs 1st yr --- Even if you start in October, you will have vacation/personal time to use as of January 1st, howeve if you leave before your anniversery date, you may have to pay the company back for any time that you did not gain as of your last day of employment.

    Management and supervisors get this luxury party that they hire buses and such to take people there so you are not driving and have a upscale party (unlike what the rest of the workers get)

    The company has several GMC Envoys that they use in the winter to go out in snow storms to pick you up for work and take you home in if there is a bad snowstorm.

    Cons

    Very Low Payscale, even for the Scranton area. Most jobs paid $7.50 to $8.50/hr.

    Mailroom paid just about minimum wage.

    Lack of advancement - You could try to possibly advance yourself within you own department sometimes, but trying to get a better paying position or a better position in another area was justt about impossible.

    Terrible dental benefits.

    Always hiring -- big turnover.

    Much of it's business if based upon contracts with insurance companies. If they loose a contract, you job, department or entire section can be shut down.

    Manditory overtime at the last minute around the holidays, forcing you to rework your schedule/home life. This is something that you were not informed about during your interview.

    Stupid system that when you have a doctors appointment or have to leave even 1/2-hour early, that you have to take your vacation time to make up the 40 hours for the week. You cannot have less than a 40-hr check. if you no longer have vacation time, they will not grant your request, even for a doctor's appointment.

    You can get written up for using you personal/vacation time.

    You acrue vacation time but based on days worked not hours, so if you work overtime, you do not accrue extra times for that.

    Vacation must be taken in 8-hr blocks, so you can get disapproved for taking a full week if you only have 35 hours left of time.

    No matter how hard you work, you are only reviewed as being an average worker.

    Only people that have been their the full 365 days can get the holiday bonus. No partial bonuses, even if you were there, say 11 months and basically helped the company attain their goals -- you are not eligible. Basically your bonus, in a sense, get's divided between those there a full 12 months.

    Crappy x-mas party --- Management and supervisors get this luxury party that they hire buses and such to take people there so you are not driving and have a upscale party.
    The rest of the workers that do the grunt work of the operations get a party that they have to take during their lunch 1/2-hr on the day that it is given. If you take mroe than a 1/2 hour for your lunch to eat at the gathering that day, you have to make up the time at the end of the day, and if you take more than an hour, you will get written up for affectting the production of the department.

    Management and supervisors get great holiday bonuses, unlike the lousy $100 that the rest of the workers get, if they qualify to get it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.
    What's the purpose of annual company opnion survey's if you do nothing about the results and don't publish the results of the survey for 6 months.
