Interesting, challenging work. Great potential, but bogged down by history, legacy systems, & bureaucracy.

    * Did I mention Great Products?

    Cons

    * Management needs Reorganization
    * Better Training program
    * Better communication system
    * Better Recognition
    * The main problem; not having back office support to help with clients inquiries
    * If you are not a strong individual, you can and will be taken advantage of (I have seen it happen, but not towards myself as I know my rights as an employee to any company)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on customer acquisition. Worry less about bringing in so many customers when there is little back office support to help manage account inquiries. Also, learn to send individuals that are being promoted within to management classes. Delivery is everything and not all management offers that. Lastly, and most importantly, really pay attention to the client’s needs and wants as the company relies on their happiness. Other companies make this mistake on focusing on solely new customers and in the long run, this affects the company by cancelations or nonpayment of services. Other than that, this is a great company with tremendous promise and a bright profitable future for both the clients, end-users and employees. We should think more like Google and less like Verizon (Idearc Media/SuperMedia, and GOD knows what other name they change to next).
