    Pros

    Being able to work from home is good, they give you all the equipment needed to get your home office set up.

    Cons

    The training for WFH associates is a joke. 3 weeks and I didn't learn even half the stuff I would encounter in the day to day calls. Not quite sure who my management team is, except for one person. Other associates can be very unpleasant during transfers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your associates when they reach out to you for help. Offer better training for the WFH department. Don't allow teams to grow so large that management has no idea who you are.
