    Pros

    My supervisors and my coworkers were great to work with. I worked the second shift and we got along like family.

    They constantly fed us. Most of the time it was the big-wigs leftovers but they were good leftovers.

    They didn't harass you about the amount of time you spent on the call with a client or service provider.

    Cons

    The computer systems were terrible. They were very slow and had all kinds of errors.

    If you were trying to enter your notes, they would throw calls at you and sometimes it would be several hours before you could document your calls and you may not remember what was said or done.

    They started out giving you incentives with a good QA score and attendance. They took the attendance incentive away. When you work in a call center, incentives for coming to work is huge.

    The pay was poor for the job you were required to do.

    The medical insurance was so high I couldn't afford it on my salary.

    I put in for several positions there and I never heard a word but I'd look up and they would have hired someone from the outside who had no experience with this type of work.

    Advice to Management

    You need to listen to the people who are actually doing the work, not the stats you're being given. You need to find out what the real problems are and fix them.

    Pros

    Handful of incredible people still work for this company, but I don't know how they keep their sanity within a hellish environment.

    The executives have a God complex and think they own you because they give you a paycheck.

    Pros

    It was a great atmosphere for the first couple of years

    Cons

    Very strict, upper management had a dictator-esque personality. Like Kim Jong Il he would just show up and not say anything to you.. just watch for a minute then leave.. Then maybe fire you later for no apparent reason.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your expectations high only if you are willing to put in the effort to properly train employees.
