Once you're hired you're stuck in that position with no opportunity for growth.

Pros

CBORD has a good benefits package. When you're hired you're giving 3 weeks of vacation. After 5 years it is bumped for 4 weeks and after 10 years it's up to 5 weeks. You have 12 sick days with 3 that can be used as personal days. This benefits package in regards to vacation/time-off is pretty good.

Cons

There's very little opportunity for growth within CBORD. Salaries are fairly low when you're hired and promotions/raises are very rarely given out. As of the end of 2010 the majority of the employees haven't received raises in about 3 years. There's very little recognition on a "job well done". Overall, management and senior management seem to care little about motivation.

The rest of the benefits package isn't so great. Healthcare costs aren't covered well by CBORD. The HR department is bad at negotiating healthcare agreements with insurance companies. This results in an almost yearly change in plans which usually results in your out of pocket cost going up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to focus more on motivating their employees. It's understandable that budgets have been tight over the past few years, but small gestures are easy, cheap, and impactful. Opportunities for growth should be provided. The company tenor is such that a jolt of inspiration and vigor would be beneficial. Unfortunately no attempt has been made.

    Pros

    Generally, really like and enjoy the people I work with.

    Job security, it is nice to know you have a job and it likely to be there tomorrow. Don't know how you can get fired, management seems completely unable to deal with a few extremely poor performing employees.

    If you are unable to do your current job, you just get shuffled around the company while other employees pickup the slack with the same pay and lack of raises.

    Cons

    Pay. Three years with no raise. Work environment is very stressful, along with stress of trying to pay bills at home. Probably bringing home less money then when I started.

    Apparently little value in human resources. A general feeling that you need Cbord more than Cbord needs you, and you are treated so.

    Not hiring new employees, trying extremely hard not to fill vacant positions. Backbone employees continuously overworked, underpaid, with increasing responsibilities. Human resources are stretched too thin. Software products rushed out the door at very low quantity and not nearly finished in terms of 1st general release standards. If you are a customer, you are expected to Qa the products, or run the risk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The level of apathy toward human resources and quality produces will affect the bottom line. Employee moral is generally very low.
