    Pros

    Its a job. Coworkers are nice people for the most part.

    Cons

    No one gets raises unless you get a promotion, which are few and far between. Don't even think you'll be able to apply for a promotion or a new job opening. They don't even let internal employees know of positions. They mainly hire thought temp agencies but have recently started to post online openings. So they only way you will know your company is hiring is to already be searching for a new job. New president came in January from another company and hired all his buddies from that other company. There is a constant turn over of employees and management. Phone systems are horrible and loop around. Not only do customers get lost and frustrated but employees can't even bypass it and get lost. You waste so much time trying to the proper people who then may or may not do their job and help you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sit down and talk to your employees and make sure they have the tools and resources to do their jobs. Ask them what they need to improve or fix things. Everyone is overwhelmed with work but we shouldn't feel lost and hopeless about the future as you preach hope and change. If you ask for suggestions, read and respond to the suggestions of employees. Don't ignore us.
