  1. Over all it's a great company but they don't take time to really train their employees with data entry.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the field travel and working with teams of three, my comrades. Company pays for flights, hotels, rental cars, and meals (per Diem rates vary). Overall this is a nice job if you don’t mind traveling to new places and can handle living away from your family in a nice motel/hotel for two weeks.

    Cons

    Once back from field data input is very time consuming (3-4 weeks). Deadline pressures are very real and managers don't realize how much extra work is added on with some projects. They are more eager to get it done...some are too are over worked with too many projects to respond to or check up on field staff issues.

    Advice to Management

    Very few managers mentor their subordinates. Yes we are expected to know our trade, but data entry on their computer system is extremely detailed orientated and very time consuming. They should share their experience or incorporate the “tricks of fast, repetitious data entry” into their training and mentoring program. I found very few willing to do this. Managers do not debrief and discuss finished projects, they are too busy on current and upcoming ones to really ask line staff about improvements or feedback on just completed projects.


  2. Good experience with an above average group of dedicated, friendly, and knowledgable employees

    Pros

    Management is understanding of work - life balance. While employees do work hard they are treated with respect and offered flexibility to deal with personal matters. WFH options are available based upon one's role (as to be expected). Pleasant team environment.

    Cons

    Office/Building layout is not condusive to lots of cross departmental intereaction.
