    Pros

    Rapid ability to move up the corporate ladder due to constant revolving door

    Cons

    People put in management positions who have no ability to be great managers/leaders, micro-management all the way from the top down. A lot of "back stabbers." Job required staying late and coming in on the weekends [amazing how may people would actually be in the office on a Saturday afternoon]. Wages and or salaries are not inline with other "top carriers." Saw numerous people go to lunch and never return. In a 2 year span I had over 5 different supervisors and two different managers, all with different agenda's.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and evaluate the situation/big picture , don't need an MBA from Headquarters to do that!

  2. Great in the beginning but it is a shrinking company.

    Pros

    Good compensation. Work from home available in many areas. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    This is a shrinking company which has and continues to let go hundreds of people in the past several years to offshore companies or by virtue of divestiture. The threat of being laid off is constant and affects employees morale.
    There are little to no advancement opportunities, especially for women. Gender bias was a frequent observation.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful to monitor the quality of service being delivered to the customer in the midst of transformation.
    When a company is shrinking at the rate HIG is this may be difficult but make attempts, even if small, to provide opportunities for advancement.
