Cons

Hours available for front desk agents are minimal due to the economy management covers most front desk hours. (Management is hopeful this will change in 2012). This factor often requires agents to have additional employers due to the few hours available to them. Employee benefits are unable to be acheived due to employees unable to work fulltime weekly hours for terms required for these benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

create more fultime positions available for employee benefits to be acheived

    Pros

    Fun is important. Even when the job sucks, you still feel like everybody's in it together. As a member of the global ecommerce team, you get to work with alot of intelligent people and get to be part of some very creative solutions. The diversity of the team is fantastic.

    Cons

    With any large technology organizations, you'll see some bad decisions being made and supported from the top down. The hours can be a little insane, seeing as it's a global company and you have to interact/support groups around the world.

    Pros

    Most staff members are a pleasure to work with and consistently helpful.

    Cons

    Irregular and inconsistent hours. "Push to top" attitude at front desk. Inappropriate relationships interfere with professional management judgment calls. Management personal vendetta will give up great employees for self justification.
