Pros

Decent benefits, good work environment

Cons

Since about 2008, the company has been looking for ways to sharpen their pencils and cut costs at any opportunity. Despite a positive market and improving business, it does not seem that there is an end in sight.

Employees in New England are increasingly the red headed step children with most opportunity being relocated to NC and Dallas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The bottom line is not always the most important thing. There are many vulnerable areas due to cost cutting that could seriously impact the business if a few dominos were to fall.

    Pros

    The benefits are outstanding. Great licensing programs.

    Cons

    Business units operate in silos. Hard to move up if you start in a phone role. Senior management is disconnected from representatives. One year requirement to stay in a phone role each time you change positions. Six sick days per year and only 4 weeks vacation time no matter how long you have been with the firm. Technology is outdated and they layer applications on top of old platforms. Signifcant barrier to doing your job effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what representatives are actually saying. Rebuild your systems from scratch instead of adding new applications onto outdated, overworked systems.
