    Pros

    The managers I have had in the 6 years have all been awesome to work for. There is a strong sense of teamwork in each department.

    Cons

    No real cons to mention.

    Pros

    Decent pay for the area, most managers are great, the company is growing so there is no concern with job security, overall friendly coworkers. Would recommend to a friend as a starter job.

    Cons

    While the pay may be decent for the area, they are not competitive so there are other companies with much better pay options. Benefits are extremely unreasonable for families, annual increases are not guaranteed and are inconsistent when they are given, the company is sales driven and not employee driven so employees are always an after thought when it comes to pay or progessive ideas.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for middle management, because they can't do anything without executive approval so any advice would be pointless. Upper management needs to start thinking in terms of it's employees. At some point you need to stop and perfect what you have or the growth of the company will be irrelevant.

    Pros

    They will allow you to work and move around in the company as you gain experience.

    Cons

    The pay practices are very poor. They pay below the industry standard for most positions unless you are a very experienced I.T. person. This is the reason that attrition is so high with the company. People gain experience and then get more money elsewhere. Also, the benefits are horrible and expensive if you are trying to cover a spouse/family.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people better so that they will stay.

    Pros

    Easy work, free garage parking.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. There are so many cliques and management has their favorites and let's them talk and horse around while the others pick up their slack. Don't even bother working hard because all they will do is give you more work with little acknowledgement. Looking for growth? Well don't look here. The growth opportunity is basically nonexistent. This job is only good temporarily. Do not expect to make a career out of it.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone and start over.

    Pros

    The work is interesting and not difficult You get to check peoples backgrounds and check there resumes. Overall it is interesting work.

    Cons

    The management in Dallas is nasty. They are gossipy and unprofessional. They never appear to work instead sitting in other midmanagers offices. They say things that in most offices would be considered offensive. There have been numerous racist remarks made but management is either the one who said it or do nothing to fix it. It is not a positive place at all. Work is not evenly spread out so some have too much and others do little to nothing. There is no room for growth. Their insurance if you can call it that cost to much and offer little. Time off is hard to use and you do not earn much. Pay is rediculous for the work expected.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the management problem in Dallas. Divide out the work better so people can get their work done properly and in a timely manner. Stop suspending people for expressing their own opinions. Increase pay or pay bonuses.

    Pros

    Time off is Okay. They have to approve it which is impossible because they only allow one person off per day. Benefits are pretty good overall.

    Cons

    Dallas Management is horrible. Opportunities for advancement are all about being in the "in" group it isn't based on time of service or who actually deserves it based on their work ethic or how much they produce. Management tells someone they will be getting a promotion but then give it to their friend instead. Management allows people they like to just not work causing those they don't like to be overworked. The pay is ridiculously low for what they expect.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay across the board. Stop promoting people because you like them. Make work loads even across the board. Have more training opportunities for new accounts.
