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 ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the oldies who can't change.

    Old school 8-5 company that is unlike a software or high tech company

    Pros

    Good work/life balance that is promoted by Sr. management. It is not a overtime every night kinda place but a 8-5 place. Most people seem to arrive after 8am and leave before 5:30pm. Good job if you have a family, another job or a hobby.

    Cons

    No upward career mobility because they expect you to just do your job and be happy about it. Most decisions need to go to Senior management. Salary increases only match inflation, if there are any salary increases. Most employees are long timers who have been at the company over 10 years and they don't know a different way of doing things or have different ideas. Very stifling if you want to grow in your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to provide a compelling vision for the company and not just focus on EBITDA for the next quarter. A vision where we believe and can strive for. Where is the company going? What is the future look like?

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
