A company that changed a lot while I was there

Pros

A pretty flat management structure makes decisions quick, but almost all power is concentrated that way. Also it's a company of fierce loyalty to old timers who may not be the right people for the company today. It's run almost like two companies, one very typical for churn and burn smb sales, and one very traditional, for enterprise, value-add, long term, huge company clients.

Cons

If you got in back in the beginning, you might be golden, but getting in now you'll be a number. That's OK for some people, and it is still a good company that wants to do the right thing for its clients

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire a consultant to take a look at the management who have been there over 5 years and help you decide where you can do better. You have some average people in important roles.

    Pros

    They have a decent benefits package and the work is easy

    Cons

    The work is so easy your presence is almost irrelevant. This is a high turnover company that does not reward initiative, and the only way to get a higher position. They higher college graduates to do work that could be effectively done with a better computer system supported by actual customer service representatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously evaluate your business processes and systems. It is unbelievable that a company run so inefficiently can survive in this market.

    Pros

    Employees are engaged. Employees are rewarded based on results, not tenure. Good culture.

    Cons

    The process of getting things implemented is sometimes more time consuming than it should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to let employees are valued and listen to their ideas.
