Pros

Good salary and benefits with room for growth!

Cons

Lots of business unit managers have been around way too long. They don't think outside their antiquated box and seem to be coasting until death or retirement.

Advice to Management

Get rid of the oldies who can't change.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Ability to work from home. Small Teams - great teamwork together. Not to difficult of a job. Decent starting pay. Good place to coast, if you're just looking for that.

    Cons

    No real training. Promises often, follow thru seldom. No internal movement possible. Lack of skill improvements. Hardware not up to date, or keep up to date. Tools out of date, and band-aid to death, new tools have issues not fixed or address old issues. Lack of clear policy and procedures. Yet what management uses against you constantly. Lack of management knowing how things truly work. In 3 years 1 raise and was below inflation Work load increases constantly with 0 compensation. Talk of "We" and "Team" until something goes wrong then it's someone's head on the chopping block and nothing but finger pointing from management. No true thinking out of the box. Tho asked to do so, implementation will just get your hand slapped, and if it fails then large amounts of blame are placed. Don't rock the boat, or you'll be out the door. Have to have that yes man mentality getting talked down too, or blamed for things not your fault, should be meet with canned responses and not the actual events that took place.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at your management teams. If a manager can't keep his head count filled in this economy, what does that say about that manager. It's more of a buddy system for promotions or moves in the company. I've seen this company lose a lot of great talent (especially in the last year) due to poor management decisions / thought process. Management really fail to see the big picture and don't care how their decisions affect the other workers. Layoffs are taken very lightly and without rhyme or reasons. Who you think should be let go stays, and who should stay gets let go. Needs to be some sort of better training for the managers of this company, as they tend to be very unprofessional when dealing with real situations.


  2. For the most part my experience is okay here. the morale is low among staff because of miss management.

    Pros

    Family comes first. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Management is more worried with EBIDA management than customer service or employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    Start appreciating the employees you do have and start focusing on what the customer tells you about customer service and what the employees tell you.
