A well-respected company, but very rigid.

Director, Client Service (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

ProsPlenty of resources -- one of the largest companies in its industry.

ConsVery rigid -- little flexibility; Company is unbelievably revenue focused -- I've never known a company of this size to push for revenue recognition every month.

Advice to Senior ManagementSee "Cons" above -- back off on the monthly revenue pushes.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
