Pros

They have a positive atmosphere and make a clear effort to show appreciation to their employees.

Cons

The work was boring, and there's really no way around that. I happened to be doing data entry so other positions may be better, but for what I was doing it wasn't enjoyable. The cubicle setup was very isolating and not very stimulating. I was at one of the offices in Rochester, and it felt like a big warehouse - there were no windows from the office, just a big one-story building with florescent lighting and gray cubicles.

Advice to Management

A more collaborative environment would be helpful.

    Pros

    They give full benefits after first month and the pay is decent, but should they should pay more for what you have to do

    Cons

    The harder you work, the more work they give you and the learning curve is absurd. They try to lighten the mood and make it fun, but it's just not possible given the environment.

    Advice to Management

    Make pay equal to the work performed

    The amount of work (especially at year end) can sometimes be overwhelming
