    Pros

    Great cafeteria, gym, free parking, high pay.

    Cons

    The most political place I've ever worked or seen. Employees afraid to discuss their analysis until they know which way the wind is blowing. Easy to get black listed and let go at the next reorganization if you speak your mind.

    Advice to Management

    stay focused on the business and not your turf or your back yard. Think company -- including the staff that make up the company -- before your selfish interests.

  2. Helpful (1)

    Unstable. The company is always announcing changes and then changing their mind.

    Pros

    Decent health insurance. Some opportunity for overtime if you want it. No layoffs yet but with all of the outsourcing it is only a matter of time.

    Cons

    The company is outsourcing a lot of duties to foreign countries. The agents in these foreign countries are constantly screwing things up and we have to fix it and get yelled at by the customer. Management is constantly coming up with "great ideas" of how to run the place better but they don't listen to their employees' input and the plans almost never work. Replacing our perfectly good phone system with one that is inferior is a good example of this. A lot of the time they don't even go through with these "improvements" so it's hard to predict what work will be like in a month or a year.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what it is you want to do and stick with it. And stop alienating our customers by outsourcing to people who barely speak English.
