It is extremely stressful. They talk about work life balance but it is impossible to achieve.

    Pros

    Great management support across all towers, good work life balance, since insourcing has begun it is getting better and better as more resources are brought internally.

    Cons

    High expectations, if that can be a con but I guess the largest challenge has been learning the internal flow if things but not too rough if you take good notes of your resources you will be just fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In my tower I am quite happy with my management I think if I had to make a suggestion I would say "your remote workers are a great cost savings and happy to please workforce that tend to work longer hours without complaint and from my little place in the world it is a great system with plenty of room to expand".

    Pros

    Easy workloads, so work life balance is very easy to achieve
    Good benefits
    Nice work environments
    You'll meet some really great people

    Cons

    The company has grown fast. But, the traditional and limited real world experience of its large Richmond employee base has not been able to keep pace. Mind sets are slow to evolve and there's a total lack of real experience, but a mindset that they think they are great and better than everyone around. A company who grew up in Richmond has to grow up and out of its old ways of thinking or it will be taken over by the likes of smarter and better players like The Wall Street banks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really listen to what good people and great talent tells you. Internalize it and make changes. Avoid organizational hubris at all costs.
