I used to enjoy the job...

Sales Consultant (Current Employee) Austin, TX

ProsFlexible hours, small tight nit crew. Fun environment when you aren't running around trying to get things done. Good work experience for first time job.

ConsI've been with OMX for 4 and a half years, and all I know is that after all this time I still don't understand why the company does half the things it does. They are so pointless and waste payroll that is already limited, resulting in serious under-staffing. I do the job 3 people would at another company. It's exhausting, and I always feel under appreciated.

Advice to Senior ManagementPick a plan and stick with it. Make sure policies and actions make sense. Don't just throw something out there and hope that it will work. Appreciate the employees you have, and don't run them off by letting SMs and ASMs treat them like garbage.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
