Pros

Working with a great team is always good and if you're good at customer service this is a place you should be..Its a fun environment

Cons

Management would not allow employees to work overtime and would schedule employees below 40 hours a week. Other than that, it was a great place to work

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Large stable company that is a Fortune 40 company with an eye towards going global.

    Cons

    1.) Old guard management that was generally promoted from within, has been replaced with aggressive outsiders that have literally caused a mass exodus of very-very talented people.

    2.) A much ballyhooed GPS (Grow Perform Succeed) system that is supposed to be a tool for yearly reviews, bonuses etc, has turned into a laughing stock that is highly ridiculed silently by rank and file employees.

    3.) An outsourcing agreement with TCS and IBM that threatens all remaining IT workers.

    Advice to Management

    Return to their core values that routinely saw persons working there for 20+ years. They talk about work life balance, but under the table, many managers disdain it, ignore it, do nothing to help bring it about.
