For the first 20 years it was great.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Oldsmar, FL

ProsPlenty of opportunity to work as many hours as you wanted to work, from home or in office. Good benefits, pay and training.

ConsProcess improvement is good when properly coordinated and executed but, when processes are changed multiple times in a year Employees grew fatigued and morale suffered. Long time employees felt their input was ignored. We knew there were inefficiencies to be corrected and exactly what could be done, but, the executive leaders were arrogant and favored courting "Emerging Leaders" who would toe the company line without question.

Advice to Senior ManagementForced ranking does not motivate employees to perform, it makes them feel hopeless...like no matter how well they perform or how much time they give the company, someone will still be ranked lower so managers can meet the executive directive. Value the people who understand the business. We are not producing widgets and your clients will jump ship when they realize that your contractors don't understand the business and cannot spot inaccuracies in the data.
