    Pros

    Benefits, hire from within, free coffee, tea, hot chocolate and soda. The people you meet are awesome.

    Cons

    It's like high school. Managers and Directors talk bad behind people's backs and then pretend to like them to their face. If a manager or director doesn't like a person, they won't give recommendations for them to apply for a different position... and I mean not liking them as a person, professionally. I had a horrible manager who didn't know what she was doing, put sales as a last priority and I tried for a year and a half to get off her team. I went to my director, HR, other directors who tried to help me, but since my manager knew I did not like her as a manager, she refuses to let me move teams. She knew I was miserable, knew my manager wasn't helping in anyway, I was doing her job and she got all the credit!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because you like someone doesn't mean they are a good manager.

    Pros

    If you have the right manager this place is ok to work for. Most people are stressed out 24/7 about losing their jobs and the upper management reminds you of it constantly.

    Cons

    If you don't sell, you're fired. If you DO sell and the contractor decides to turn off their leads before 24 hours, you could get fired. You have to lie to contractors and tell the what they want To hear and not what will actually benefit them. This place is a terrible place to work now and I would RUN far and fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop threatening our jobs even after we submit sales. Denied legals, leads off etc... OUT OF OUR CONTROL!!!
