    A big company with an uncertain future.

    Manager (Current Employee) Costa Mesa, CA

    ProsQuality people and culture. Decent salaries plus competitive performance bonuses. Acceptable work / life balance. Strong benefits package. The company does a high level of community outreach and philanthropic work.

    ConsRecent changes and management and market conditions have affected stability. Company suffers from process paralysis. Annual bonuses were not given this year which has affected morale. I have little confidence in the leadership abilities of several mid-level VPs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not what it used to be. Ok, if do not have any other option

    IT Supervisor (Former Employee) Costa Mesa, CA

    ProsFast pace, good for gaining experience. Training opportunities are there but it depends on which department or group you belong to.

    ConsToo much focus on bringing new revenue and almost no focus on retaining current customers. Quality of work suffers because of focus on speed.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overall good, but in the end, laid off

    Senior Client Services Specialist (Current Employee) Schaumburg, IL

    ProsGreat support & teamwork from fellow co-workers. Great products available for clients.

    ConsMismanaged. Head of division was never around for very long so different management styles. Constantly changing culture of a lot of management, then trim the management, then back to adding a management. Yearly layoffs.

    Overworked, under appreciated and whole department was planned to be moved to Chile when I was hired.
