    Pros

    Great company to work for. They care about their employees, give you lots of opportunities to give back to the community and have fun with fellow employees. They don't pretend like they aren't trying to make money as a company, but they still care about the customers and the environment.

    Cons

    Working in the contact center was dreadfully boring. You aren't allowed to do anything non-work related between calls and within two months I'd finished all the work-related things I could do between calls.

    Loved the culture but was underappreciated.

    Pros

    The benefits are awesome - even part-time benefits. The culture is very cool. The customers tend to be cool also.

    Cons

    Pressure to sell memberships - with no direct reward. I felt personally underappreciated because I wasn't invited to stay on as a regular employee after my second stint as a seasonal employee.

    Advice to Management

    If you like an employee enough to invite them back for a second round of seasonal work, invite them to stay even if you don't have many hours for them.
