    Pros

    The perks as an employee are great. You get paid well, and don't have to work that hard.

    Cons

    The organization is slow to move, rewards tenure over performance, and is highly inefficient. Even though there are many opportunities for the company to better implement technology to eliminate middle and back office jobs, the company does not undertake those projects for fear of having to lay off employees of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the fat in the business. In your business, it is more important to look busy than to actually be doing work.

  2. Helpful (1)

    There was a lot of pressure to do a good job and very little appreciation when you really did a good job.

    Pros

    Stable company with great co-workers. Lots of information given during training and good pay.

    Cons

    At first, I was given the impression that it would be a 2 year contract but it ended suddenly with no prior notice. I was called to the office, sent downstairs and told that the contract ended right then. I received a great review but they ended the contract saying that the sponsoring company discontinued financial support.
