Pros

Great company to work for while going to college. There were great advancement opportunities for those who worked hard. Amazing benefits such as health/401K/employee stock purchase plan, tuition reimbursement. It was a very fun job where I enjoyed the relationships that I made with employees and customers.

Cons

Very numbers driven culture. The job was very stressful when numbers were down. The company had a "restructuring" every year where leadership positions were eliminated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to the employee-centric days of 2005 and I believe that customer and financial results will improve.

    Pros

    Great building, relaxed atmosphere, lots of authority, can direct own career path.

    Cons

    Not told what the Renew Blue strategy is exactly. The street hears news before the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share information with the employees; so, they don't have to hear it from friends and relatives. Be honest about performance of the company.
