    Pros

    Learning library available to expand your skills ...if you ever had any free time.

    Cons

    Excessive overtime is always expected. Deadlines are unrealistic.

    Advice to Management

    Higher project managers that present resource leveled plans and stop cutting 40% from the timeline but still expecting 110% of the workload to be completed. What happened to work life balance?

    Pros

    The salary is competitive, benefits are reasonable. The call center does allow for flexible schedules such as four 10 hour days.

    Cons

    The management of the call center was terrible - you were always presumed to be at fault if anything happened and everyone was always afraid that you would be laid off. It wasn't a pleasant atmosphere to work in always afraid for your job.

    Advice to Management

    Coaching should always be balanced with recognition of when someone does something good as well as being more proactive in creating a good working relationship with the employees. No one should ever fear for their job for one mistake.
