Pros

Good benefits including for domestic partners. Tuition reimbursement includes books and you need only a B-. Sometimes interesting work and there are some truly excellent people there (not necessarily Managers and above, though).

Cons

I agree with many existing reviews here. In my experience this company is slow to give raises unless you slavishly conform to the existing corporate culture (which means change is slow if it erupts at all, and then sometime's squashed). Some IT systems are awful: old, poorly understood and supported, clunky. As noted by others, some recognition programs are thought by many to be for rewarding favorite employees only, not merit-based. This company attracts workers partly because there aren't many large employers in Southern Maine, and not based on its own strengths....

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ask the employees: they have plenty of good ideas.

    Pros

    Benefits, Mon-Fri work week. Vacation days. All the money the company wastes on fun days doing nothing, hiring a big name motivational speaker for an all day event, sending employees to Disney world..The pro is for the upper management, CEO's and teachers pets, but the company wastes to much money on fun, but at least there is a lot of fun for the employees!!

    Cons

    I have had 7 mangers in 7 years of employment. Workflow changes bi-weekly or weekly or daily..(seriously) -Managers pick favorites. for a disability company; they treat employees bad for using FMLA or STD benefits. Teamwork is impossible with managers playing favorites. The employee is never right. The managers think they are and some of us know more than them. No understanding for single mothers leaving to pick up their sick child without having a initial mark on their HR file. Kids dont get sick once a year so if the employee leaves or calls in for this they can eventually loose their job as they only allow 6 occurrences and then you are terminated. Some managers treat their employees worse than you would treat a prisoner. This company says how tey want to make our customers lives better on their commercials, but they dont treat their employees the same. Never take a job their. anything good you hear about this company is from upper management or a "teachers pet". What I said is REAL 100%-

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together-quit changing procedures daily. This only makes us more stressed and confused and causes productivity to slow. Quit picking favorites and dont let your Senior employees(DBS, BCA,,Admin,MRU, etc) tell everyone's business (which they are bound by contract to not do) and then believe them when they say they didnt repeat others personal information.
