Pros

New CEO in 2012 that is really visible, making good changes, and trying to modernize technology. Medium size company with a small company feel. The people are great. Good opportunities to see things all the way through and do a lot of development.

Cons

Located in the middle of Illinois. Hard to attract diverse talent because of location. Eighty five year old company with lots of long term management and employees make it hard to move quickly and make things happen.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more open minded about virtual work and virtual employees. If management in a certain area is hold the company back, don't wait till they die or retire - get rid of them.

    Cons

    -Working in a call center is a nightmare to begin with
    -Time off policies are poor compared to competitors
    -Very little advancement opportunity
    -They act like the call center jobs are your careers and don't help you pursue other goals
