Pros

The pay was great, they offer competitive wages for hourly supervisors and salary for the managers within the hub operations. You can advance quickly within the hub. They have wonderful tech support!! They promote great culture and great values within the hub. Most hubs have really great solid group of hourly employees, and management can have vacation pretty much whenever. Company poured gifts on the management at the annual meetings to show their appreciation! They have a really great HR team!

Cons

It was really tough to manage work life and home life, due to the crazy hours. You are there until the job is done for the day, so you never have an out time! Upper management beyond the hubs gets a little dicey! Upper management is full of people who only got hired because they knew the right people not because of their talent or embodiment of the company values, and because of that really poor decisions are made when it comes to hiring managers to run the hub operations and when to fire hub managers as well, but HR is there to keep most things in check, The annual management meetings are a giant frat party with an excess of drinking and the only way to get in with the upper management is to rub shoulders with them and drink alongside of them! It also was hard to respect your regionals in the morning after talking with them as they slur their words into a puddle of drool and can't even stand up by 930pm! ? Only other downside was they did pry into your personal life far too often? They wanna tell you who you can hang out with and don't want you fraternizing with anyone outside of work.

    Pros

    Awesome industry; memorable teammates; great opportunity to stand on the edge of the precipice of unquantified technologies...

    Cons

    Never sure which way the wind blows; work hard to develop a team -- and then it's blown away in an instant; turnover is so quick that it's almost unnecessary to unpack your bag.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give teams more time to blossom; expectation of termination on the whim of management leads to loss of faith in the overall mission of the company.
