I worked at Affinion Group

Pros

If hired the vacation time and benefits are decent

Cons

If you like customers screaming at you with no training as to how to handle them; supervisors who scream at you and push you around, no communication with upper management; a very noisy, stressful call center environment; no food, drink (unless in special cups); outside internet avaiable; break only at a bell... not allowed to leave station with the bell (goes against any bonus you get) - then the Affinion Call Center in Brentwood, TN is for you. STAY AWAY!!! PS VERY LOW PAY...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your people like they are human not robots.

    Pros

    Decent working hours. Good pay and benefits. Office space that looks good, at least if you don't look too closely.

    Cons

    Many people have been laid off in the last 6 months or so, yet the company continues hiring. A sizable number of the layoffs have been older employees. Promotions go to those who participate in "happy hours" and make influential friends rather than those who actually make money for the company. The overall morale is abysmal, especially since the move to Stamford, which created a much more stressful commute for many employees. Those at the bottom saw their work space shrink to an insulting size, while VP and above got luxurious offices. Everybody is looking over their shoulder to see if they're going to be the next one laid off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat those at the bottom with the same respect you show those at the top. Stop acting as if all of the company's successes are solely the work of VPs. Give tenured employees who've done a good job a shot at changing jobs instead of automatically laying them off. Learn your employees' names and treat them with respect.
