Okay place to work under the right department

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Buffalo, NY

ProsDecent pay for younger individuals. If you're willing to move around, offices tend to open up new departments that need bodies to fill the positions. These positions will normally have low requirements so even if you're just an Average Joe who's struggling, if you're willing to move you might have a shot to move up a little faster.

ConsVery micromanaged and a little too uptight. People have been released for using "bad language" in conversation with co-workers and HR has a tendency to ignore you when it comes to certain issues. I had an issue that took 7 months to resolve and when I spoke to a manager after 6 months of no resolution, they had no idea there was an issue...even after I was told there were several meetings between HR and management. When it comes to pay, it's good money if you're a younger person. Was making 35K at 22...but don't expect to see too much more. If you're a bit older and are looking for a 60K job, expect to work for 4-6 years to get there. If you're looking to get anywhere near 70-100K...better be ready for a long 10-20 year battle.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

If it is service, then we need more people on the ground. If it is price, then don't grade on… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
