Pros

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

Cons

Process 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 ManagementAdvice

Forced 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.

    Pros

    -Young and ambitious team
    -Reasonable when you need to work from home
    -Industry Leader
    -Good opportunity to have a lot of responsibility
    -Positive culture

    Cons

    Many, many hours-both in the office and outside the office. Sometimes seemed like you could only prove your dedication by working long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to balance the resources and slow down on all the changes. Process changes tend to happen so fast that you don't get to fully understand one change before it is time to implement on another.

    It was a very good company to work for until it became a hatchet job of old employees

    Pros

    They are an exciting and viable growth company

    Cons

    If you are not part of the crowd you are gone
    They are not honest in what they are doing.
    They set up their own priorities - which were not shared
    They were not to be trusted - HR especially

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the heartbeat of the comapny
