    Not for smart, young, ambitious people.

    Sales Representative (Former Employee) Marietta, GA

    ProsDecent pay, benefits and all the stupid crap you get at all Fortune 500 companies.

    ConsBitter 50 year old middle managers hell bent on making young 20-somethings conform to lifestyle changes that aren't good. If you're young, they will constantly hold you back from succeeding. They fail on personal growth/development and fail on office culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementENCOURAGE more telecommuting instead of allowing once a month. Minimize the time an employee is needed in the office or create a more stimulating office environment with easy and high speed wi-fi access, an enjoyable break area with ping-pong tables, and cable TV with ALL the sports channels. Yes. All of them. Even the ones in Spanish.

    Fundamentals strong; poor workforce talent management

    Analyst (Former Employee)

    ProsCompany is pretty strong in fundamentals..that is keeping the lights on and being very active in the community. Employees for most part subscribe with the vision and stay with the company for longer time horizons.(you are technically a newbie with 10 year experience in the company)

    ConsA huge chunk of workforce is slated to retire in next decade; company is in no shape way or form ready to embrace newer workforce; the existing young workforce feels disengaged because there are no advancement opportunities. The company is terribly slow at mirroring it's customer base in its employee base because of history of unfair treatment of minorities. Pressing issues are nepotism, unfair job selection/advancement process, questioning culture not tolerated, and poor workforce/talent management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWalk the talk..setting up a Diversity and Inclusion department won't solve any problems. We need to be proactive at integrating the millenials into the workforce, give them opportunities to grow and rebuild that next generation of employees who would like to stay for upcoming decades!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Learning Experience...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat pay, nice workspaces and resources .. If power is your thing you will learn and have a stable job

    Consit's all about who you know at times.. NOT qualifications. I witnessed people get promoted who were not qualified or people get overlooked because someone felt threatened they would get promoted faster than them. Biases of a variety of types happened frequently and overtly..... The bias behavior really bothered and alarmed me. Ultimately the reason I did not consider working here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure your employees hire or promote qualified people. Additionally the company as a whole seems to need to think outside the box.
