    Pros

    Really nice office building, they take pride in giving their employees excellent working conditions. They are wanting to ensure their employees live balanced work-personal lives that are healthy in body, mind, and spirit -- they frequently implement healthy snack programs, lunch time Yoga, and team based activities. They also provide LOADS of training!!! The training is excellent for the workplace, as well as many of the concepts can be applied to conflict resolution etc. outside of work. They are also really accommodating to students -- if you're going to school full time you're able to get a static schedule of minimum 20 hours per week of evening shifts! Employee referal bonuses if you get friends/family hired on ($600 a head if they make it past 6mo probation) Finally, lots of room to grow within the company -- if you work hard and know your stuff it is easy to move around to higher positions within the company! Internal promotion is a big one here!

    Cons

    It is a call center job, so a lot of what you do day to day is dealing with upset members of the public, a tough skin is recommended if you go into a call center position. It is all shift work, so your schedule isn't static (if you're CSR it changes from week to week, and the hours of operation are 7am until 11pm). Vacation time needs to be done really far in advance, it is nearly possible to get a day off last minute -- vacation bidding is done a year in advance, so make sure you plan out vacation time carefully!

    Advice to Management

    Scheduling would be a lot better if we would be given static schedules one month at a time like Tech Support. Rather than having days off and on as well as hours change on a weekly basis -- would make it a lot easier on our bodies and sleep schedules!


  2. OK - not the best for personal growth

    Pros

    - Some interesting technology being deployed - Reasonably flexible work environment (work/home balance)

    Cons

    - Consistent lack of corporate direction/vision - very political working environment - employee opinions not valued - all direction comes from above
