    Pros

    It's easy to move up within the company. Management is very positive and helpful. Great benefits and great 401K as they match 6%. You can also purchase company stock at an 8% discount. They are very understanding that you have a life outside of work and are very flexible with schedules.

    Cons

    Sometimes the wrong people get promoted. Technology provided to customers is limited. Within the company the IT department or software seems to need an upgrade.

    Advice to Management

    Stay positive, give employees the chance to prove their value by letting them get hands on instead of telling them they are inadequate.

    Pros

    Fairly flexible when it comes to pre-planning time off, plenty of support for work questions, those who struggle to meet their rates have plenty of access to guidance and tips to help them improve, the health care benefits are really good, the raises are pretty decent and yearly

    Cons

    those who want to move up and become leaders seem to the ones that are "in" with those that are already leaders, too much popularity contest nonsense, too much office drama or office politics, too many stand up meetings (daily meetings for everyone), too much pressure to meet rates and not enough praise for QUALITY - they "say" quality is most important and then give better raises to those who produce the most volume instead. Lots of lies being told by leaders - too much gossip and two-faced behavior

    Advice to Management

    be honest with everyone about everything at all times, do not gossip, if someone comes to you with a problem in confidence do not share with team leads or anyone else, be professional!

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay, great supervisors, tuition reimbursement, 401 k match, discounts for working with Express Scripts

    Cons

    Some of the rules are simply not right. You earn pto as you wish, however, when you use if for sick time, you are pointed. Too many points gets you released from your job

    Pros

    As an intern you get the opportunity to work on real projects that are actually meaningful. Do not expect many fluff assignments.

    Cons

    You won't have as much free time as other jobs. Be prepared to think about work all the time. Even on the weekends work will be on your mind.

    Pros

    Challenging and rewarding work! CEO, President and Head of Sales are excellent speakers, drivers, and will drive this company to succeed.

    Cons

    Sometimes that challenging work does lead to long hours. Time management is a key skill at ESI.

    Advice to Management

    Coach your leadership to be true leaders and develop their people.

    Pros

    They do allow virtual offices, which is a plus for someone who doesn't like office living. ESI does not require a lot of travel, unless you're client facing. In that case, travel may be anywhere from 10-30% depending upon the client.

    Cons

    It's a club - and you're either in it, or not. Over the years, I have found that the opportunities are good, but not always accessible to everyone. Management tended to keep those close to them that were friends - others were hard pressed to find a true direction. I enjoyed my time at ESI tremendously - but all I can say is that CYA is the mantra.

    Advice to Management

    Take away the horrific peer reviews and put in true reviews - get rid of the bell curve - get rid of the idea that the company is a team until bonus time. Find ways to allow people to thrive instead of living in a fishbowl of tension.
