    Pros

    never a dull moment because there is always something to do
    fast paced
    benefits
    flexibility (if you are good at what you do which comes after a couple years if you last)
    meet many different people and clients and how to deal with upset clients

    Cons

    company is going no-where fast
    only way to move up is to wait until people quit ahead of you (which always happens)
    company lacks engineering experience and does nothing to retain those key individuals
    senior and upper management only care about the numbers with little care for employees at the bottom
    its a 30,000 employee company that feels like a start-up
    you are treated like an orange making orange juice and once you have given up all your juice you feel empty and thats when people start to look for more jobs

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Accountants running operations

    Pros

    relaxed atmosphere, down to earth coworkers

    Cons

    absolutely no advancement, work can be done by a middle schooler (no challenge whatsoever), low pay, very unmotivated environment.

    Advice to Management

    we see you trying to weed out the people who don't work OT by mass hire and mass fire.

  3. Overall bad experience! The hiring process was horrible, the company culture is bad, and they do not honor a two week.

    It is a very unprofessional environment
    Account Managers fight over accounts in the cubes

    I wish I headed the warnings on glass door as they are all true

    The entire company needs a top to bottom change.

    Pros

    The attitude of sincere teamwork, support, and the people who work here are committed and dedicated and work overtime voluntarily for free because they want to contribute to our goals.

    Cons

    Absolutely none. The way the managers in the East Gulf Coast region run their business is perfect, and employee morale is exceptionally high.

    Advice to Management

    To the East Gulf Coast managers, don't change a thing. You guys are great!
