    A relaxed atmosphere, but not exactly enthralling work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsThe people are really easy to get along with and make the atmosphere easy to work in. I found my supervisors approachable and professional.

    ConsThe work can be monotonous at times. Periods of vast boredom are marked with the occasional intriguing case.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue being available to work with employees. It is effective. But, try to diversify their job duties (ultimately making your workforce more malleable).

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Looking for a career this is not the place. Just a job.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsThe work itself keeps you busy all day.
    Met coworkers that are very friendly and can be very supportive.
    If you know how to text than this is the place you want to work.
    You can text your friends all day, ignore your work and no one will say a word about it.
    If you have children they are very flexible with your time especially if you are a friend.

    ConsTraining is a joke and you are left to figure things out yourself.
    Supervisors have no idea what their workers are doing and cannot help most of them if there is an issue.
    People that work the hardest are treated like they are not working and the people that are
    texting or on their cell phones all day have nothing said to them.
    Many family members hired which are the laziest people you ever want to work with.
    Mass lay offs of full time, long time employees the last 2 years leaving a huge mess for the remaining employees.
    No advancement unless you are in the supervisors immediate circle of friends.
    Benefits cut for full time workers.
    Part time workers with no benefits hired to replace full time employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhere does one start?
    So this does not turn into a rant start with the following.
    Make your supervisors accountable for their ignorance and lack of knowledge of work that is given to their employees. Employees cannot get answers from their supervisors and many problems go unresolved leaving accounts unattended for months or years or the possibility of
    counter suits.
    Good luck in the future of your company.

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

    Decent company, really tries to do the right thing ethically

    Operations Specialist (Current Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsCompetitive pay, flexible working hours, clearly defined expectations, fair amount of autonomy

    ConsBoring, tedious, huge amount of 'busy' work that could be eliminated by even a mediocre programmer.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStreamline the processes, there are a huge number of redundancies that are unnecessary. If you eliminated a lot of the manual processes, you could greatly reduce the amount of clerical work and increase the profit margin significantly. If you get someone in there with both programming and analytical savvy, it wouldn't be hard to do.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
