    Pros

    Great teamwork. You'll get a lot of recognition for a job well done. Very good about work/life balance. They empower you to do what's right for the client.

    Cons

    Low pay; have be on the phones for a while before you can move into another area. A little bit like a sweatshop.

    Pros

    A pay check at best

    Cons

    One should not have to live in fear of working for a large company, it is not the fear of being fired, or laid off or even not doing a good job. But rather the fear of management bullying their employees. Unfortunately we see in the news each and every day a kid bullied to the point that they may take their own life. Like what happened to that 12 year old girl in Florida. But what you do not see in the media is that fact that bullying occurs in the work place so much so that it makes people either very sick from the stress or that the employee is coerced to quit. Does this make for a good company to work for?
