Pros

The people on the team are friendly and mostly good to work with. The start and end of a work day is flexible (even though the number of work hours can still be long). Working from home is possible.

Cons

Lots of shifts in focus which is also reflected in frequent useless reorganizations which disrupts working teams. Senior management does not have any vision nor show that they value their employees. There is very little rightful accountability. Priority is only based on the bottom line with disregard for technology, quality, and talent growth/retention.

    Pros

    Not one single pro could be applicable to this job.

    Cons

    No recognition, no raises, no fair treatment, you cannot eat lunch in your car, bring your purse or phone inside,no books, no knitting, no candy, nothing! No paper, no pen. You sit for hours waiting. If someone reviews you badly, even if you pass to another dept,you lose all of your bonus for weeks. No sick time or you are hassled, and you must work OT or will lose your job. This is worse than a prison cell.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. This is not a place of incarceration. Your turn over should tell you that your work place is not working. People do not even stay through training most of the time. A miserable and depressing workplace that pays only $10 an hour with no raises EVER.

  2. Less than a year of frustration and disappointment

    Pros

    I can't really identify many positives at all from this experience. The benefits were scant but inexpensive, and I was grateful for the biweekly paycheck.

    Cons

    Poor management, lack of focus and direction; there was a continuous move to outsmart the customer, or at least shut them up, instead of dedicating efforts to providing a high service quality; employee growth is an absolute farce, as it's assumed that growth will come from commissions, and no other avenue for job satisfaction; folks in higher level positions will almost always sacrifice those below them in order to make themselves and their financial results look better.

    Advice to Management

    Stop telling your employees to "take away their (the customer's) power" and start investing in resources and best practices that will allow your company to provide best in class service. Cheaper isn't always better, and savvy customers can almost always see the difference.
