    Pros

    Good product. Friendly co-workers. Decent facilities. Was able to learn a lot out of college.

    Cons

    Supported product was from overseas. Lack of structured work tended to make things bounce between hectic and boring more than it should. Lack of senior knowledge about the product. Software department was often asked to do IT things instead of IT.

    Advice to Management

    Make IT do the IT work. In this type of company, they should have their own developers that specialize in what they do.

  3. Not what I expected

    Pros

    Pay is decent and it's a very busy environment, so your day goes by very quick.

    Cons

    Micromanagement, expected to turn around costs within too short of a time frame. During interviews, you are provided with one set of information and after accepting an offer based on that, all of the terms change (job details, reporting manager, product lines, etc).
    Office building needs a good house cleaning (dirty carpet, broken cube walls, carpet peeling off floor which causes a safety issue, tape to hold carpet together in certain areas, dust & dirt on top of cubes, restrooms are disgusting, outdated technology (desk phones, printer, scanner, fax, copy machine).
    Benefits are actually kind of expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with candidates that interview. Hire a cleaning crew, update office environment and technologies.

    Pros

    Emhart is a subsidiary of Stanley Black & Decker; we have excellent benefits & room to be individuals rather than robots.

    Cons

    Not specifically against Emhart, just an overall stress in the life of a CSR.

    Advice to Management

    Standardization of processes across all product lines.
