Pros

Big company. They are well thought of by consumers who buy the ads.

Cons

No training. You have to pay for any training you get, the training website is the worst!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop everything and start training the people who see the customers.

    Pros

    Great salary, dedicated staff, flexible work at home arrangements are great for people with families or other non traditional circumstances

    Cons

    Lack of face to face collaboration, only see manager in person once every three months, very demanding, long hours and difficult to take pto

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better criteria for promotion to or selection for management positions. Management is not highly skilled and seem to be reflecting a passive agressive modality which runs rampant in company
