Pros

The best part about this company is the almost every little step you take to do your job better is rewarded. The Sales and management team have put an extraordinary amount of time into devising a system that rewards you for positive action. At my last job I found (also a call center) i found that my taskings were increased on a monthly/bimonthly basis, and that my pay was actually being decreased!!!

 Any job is hard if you do it to the employer requested standard, and all companies will steadily raise the bar to increase your performance. However, not all companies compensate you when they raise that bar. The money makes it worth while.

Cons

The only negative aspect is the strict company policies. These are fairly unbending unless you have a valid reason (including evidence) of extenuating circumstances. However, the fact that i get compensated fairly probably has alot to do with the fact that this company will remove undesirable employees like a malignant tumor if it finds you to be lacking in a substantial work or personal ethic. At the end of the day, do your job and you'll do just fine.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

create a system to award inbound employees for sales to executive account customers. Our only motivation to actively consult with these customers is because we want to keep our job. The current policy for addressing these customers works, but it could be so much better.

    Pros

    They are very flexible on the corporate side with work hours and sick time that you need to take. Benefits are good. Get a lot of vacation time which is great

    Cons

    Career advancement is difficult if your career path is going towards a position that you have no experience in. Most positions now require 5+ years of experience where in the past they would hire an employee with the skills to do the work and mold them. Now they have a jr development program with a few intern like positions for career advancement but there are only a few for all of the employees to fight over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make career advancement less difficult. Have more jr positions where previous experience doesn't need to be 5+ years.

    Pros

    Pay is decent, benefits are good. Most of the new technologies are used.

    Cons

    Executives and most middle management - they are nepotistic and incompetent. Absurd deadlines. Bad ideas get approved, good ideas get ignored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves.
