Pros

vacation accrual rate is better than average.

Cons

Good old boys in Phoenix insure only ideas from Phoenix carry any weight. If you have career aspirations and don't live in Phoenix, don't bother, very cliqueish company. KKR buyout resulting in lots of changes for the worse. Pay scales are going down, as are budgets for employee recognition.

    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

    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.
