    Pros

    In this role your able to take vacation when ever you want to. Your not limited or blocked out from taking time. Plus this is a low stress role.

    Cons

    bonus structure is lacking there is a need for a performance based incentive structure put in place for this role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This role could be helped by changing the focus on performance and knowledge rather then based volume metrics normally used in contact centers.

    How can we say we are a performance based organization? When was the last time someone was let go without a riff?

    Pros

    Competitive salaries. It's relatively easy to out perform your peers. Flexible work schedule with an excellent vacation policy. Benefits are competitive as well.

    Cons

    Not a performance driven organization. Poor performers stay put and remain unproductive, or are simply moved within the organization, but are not managed out. 10/20 year veterans unable to accept or drive change, or are just comfortable with where they stand. This hampers the ability to grow within the company. Many are forced elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To become a performance based organization, we must let poor performers go, and replace them with quality talent. It's impossible to maintain a performance based organization otherwise. A "no back fill" policy just keeps below average performers on the payroll, simply to conserve head count or maintain the "fat" for the next round of layoffs.
