Pros

Lots of opportunity for growth,

Fair compensation, fair benefits

Great co-workers

Flexibility to work day

Cons

Job requirements made work/life balance was not quite "balanced"

Need to filter invites to conference calls and meeting, so only the appropriate players are invited. They are a waste of time for the rest.

Advice to Management

Better communication to employees about the changes that affect their direct reports and job responsibilities would have been greatly appreciated

    Great people overall but struggling with an over-managed, constantly changing process.

    Pros

    Great benefits and paid time off and flexibility, peaceful work environment, a very helpful team of people in stressful times who are always willing to go above and beyond.

    Cons

    Although the lower level management means well, upper management has a stronghold on the company and every few months the processes keep changing and everyone has to rally around to learn a new way of doing something until it changes again.

    Quotas, minimal flexibility, feel like a drone, but you get to work from home.

    Pros

    Working from home, supported overall, but those metrics can make you feel tied to the computer. Easy to get hired.

    Cons

    Not much interaction with your team (and you limit it because of the metrics) stifles you. Not many places to advance in the company. Things are changing all of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting bonuses and asking for more more more work.
