Pros

Decent benefits and paid time off

Cons

Horrible Training program, just push you into job with no assistance.All training done via ancient computer training and conference calls. NOT HELPFUL! Expections High for poor work environment. A lot of turnover and Corporate has no loyalty to workers, no matter how long you have been with Company, but Expect complete loyalty to them. Too many Rules about your Personal Choices, cant do any thing you want without prior permission. like buy a car! or Date someone. Very Controlling

Advice to Management

Remember we are people and NOT perfect. Training should be within each branch and by local Training person to person NOT muckty stuck up corporate who never has done the job day to day!! (WINTER) Can't expect no mistakes when the Training is very lacking.

    Pros

    The people are amazing! Location is great and people genuinely want to do the right thing. The culture is wonderful and they are starting to get more involved with their employees. Work life balance for most is fantastic.

    Cons

    Training is lacking for those in newly appointed roles. It is disheartening because you believe that upper management wants you to succeed and grow, however, they don't seem to want to offer the training and guidance. But as soon as you produce work that shows the current level of your knowledge or skill set, they blame you and don't take ownership for not developing you.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to your employees when it comes to their own development and growth!!!
