Pros

Gym on site that never gets used because you want to get out of that building as soon as possible. Some nice coworkers

Cons

Micro managed, horrible corporate culture. You could ask 3 manager the same question and get 3 different answers. Company stock is plummeting and they will do anything to not have to pay you.

Advice to Management

Fix the culture by firing your supervisors through VP's and start over. They are the most negative people ever and need to get out of their little social club and realize to run a profitable business you need the front line people to care about the company.

  1. Like witnessing a downward spiral of incompetence.

    Pros

    Very fair hourly wage.
    Managed health care plan well enough.
    Nice (annoyingly over-secured) new facility w/gym & locker rooms.
    There WAS a very good staff in place before management was exposed as incompetent, then they quit or were laid off (while less tenured, less knowledgeable counselors were kept on).

    Cons

    Being embarrassed because I had more managerial experience then most (or all) of the Counseling Department supervisors combined.
    CONSTANT employee turnover (at least 75% over three years).
    Know-nothing department management became robotic and exceedingly micromanaging (virtually every SECOND of your time is accounted for).
    Insecure management created an us-vs-them environment.
    Department management's inability to develop & motivate the staff.
    Employees are partially in the dark about new promotions and website changes because they're consistently rolled-out poorly.
    What company has a Christmas Party that ONE-THIRD of the staff can't go to?

    Advice to Management

    Gut the call center supervisory staff, most of whom were promoted because of their product knowledge (now mostly outdated), not because they had experience in managing people, leading or developing talent. Streamline the communication, hold the call center management accountable. Train and develop the staff better. I would've done this for you, but the Counseling Department thoroughly botched offering me even just a minor promotion.

  2. Not bad

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, oppotunity for advancement

    Cons

    Lay off policy includes letting go the highest paid first not the newest employees

    Advice to Management

    You get what you pay for
