Pros

Great work/life balance. Most of the people are personable. HR department has "open-door" policy. Environment is fairly relaxed.

Cons

No growth opportunities. Bonuses & raises were taken away for 2 years. In 2011, they resumed...BUT bonuses were (again) taken away from all employees except senior management forever. Flex time is forbidden. Communication of important information is severely lacking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop better communication skills so the employees know the company they work for. Incorporate flex time to accommodate individuals who have a lengthy commute. Provide more incentives to employees.

No opinion of CEO

    Not a good experience

    Pros

    Salary is good, benifits are comparable,paid vacation and holidays as well. Nice building in pleasant surroundings for walking trails at lunchtime.

    Cons

    Stressful working atmosphere, a lot of micromanagement going on. To many managers involved in employees day to day work. Do not solve internal problems to make worklife better or customer service flow as it should. No salary increases in 2 years for employees then they offered token increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the issues within the various divisions to make customer service more optimal. Live up to promises made to customers.
