    Was a great opportunity for me, and I left with a good impression of the company.

    ConsThere was no overwhelming faults apparent to me from my time with IL.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep fostering a friendly environment by making employees feel valued. The programs in place such as subsidized lunches and scholarships should continue.

    Regional Business Coordinator

    Regional Business Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Bedford, MA

    ProsIt is hard to really find the pro's I am thinking if I could find another position in the company away from customer service then it would be a better opportunity and review. I can tell you for sure that
    -Benefits
    -Decent salary
    Are very good.

    Cons-No one notices all the work you do while some of the other co-workers seemingly do nothing.
    -way too much work with people around you being fired left and right leaving you with all their work load.
    -very understaffed and they are on a hiring freeze.
    -poor management
    -no training
    -no option for advancement unless management decides you are the one to be promoted. There is no fair shot at a position they just elect you no matter how hard you work.

    Advice to Senior Managementhelp your employees- do not write angry emails to employees telling them minor mistakes made and asking if they need to be re-trained.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Accounts Receivable the Allowable hostile work environment!

    Accounts Receivable (Former Employee)
    Bedford, MA

    ProsIf you're batcrap crazy you can keep your job.

    ConsImplementation of policies and procedures put some in line for the ability to perform better while others second guess themselves and are unable to keep up working from antiquated printed aging lists. All while your boss name calls "cuckoo bird" about coworkers who's personal attitudes were constantly combative. Arguments over highlighter colors used and screaming in a coworkers face for no reason to once again over pen color. Don't take too much ownership of your job, you'll pay the price leaving feeling betrayed and back stabbed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNumbers don't lie, do yourselves a favor and get rid of the childish behavior in finance.

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