Pros

Great benefits with industry level pay-scale

Cons

First day on the job, 20 people were laid off from IT.
The cubicle (dilbertville) layout is horrendous. No privacy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Drop the buiness silos and open up communication.

    Pros

    Location, other employees, training ok

    Cons

    Management poor, Conditions worked until burned out, no help with clients, clients always unhappy on the phone with our work ethic, will not allow you to go to restroom or get water when needed unless on break or lunch Management has no clue what to do, poor pay for what you do and fire you before benefits begin. Many employees on medication for blood pressure due to work performance and fear of being fired on the spot. Glad I am out of there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work for 3 months then out of a job no help from management management has no education or disappear when needed clients suffer and we look stupid as employees. They lie to you about your performance and can you the next day

    Pros

    Good compensation for those that can advance, but there is a good ole' boys club you have to join to get there.

    Cons

    Benefits keep getting reduced each year while the employee work load keeps increasing as Sr Management slashes costs by reducing headcount and cutting benefits, all the while trying to grow the business.

    Many businesses are unable to react to market changes in a timely manner due to "paralysis by analysis" mentality and being afraid of their own shadows.

    People get rewarded and advanced for sucking up rather than on their abilities, good ole' boys club.

    Human Resources is there to cater to and side with management, not the individual employee, never trust HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find more consumer friendly products that can be praised by consumer advocates. Blur the lines between the 4 existing very isolated business units ( Health, Solutions, Benefits, Specialty). If you bring a fraction of the perks and praise to the operations people as you do the sales & marketing associates you will be in a much better place.
