    Pros

    Despite the many issues this company has, including a lack of professionalism, at least you get vacation and medical and dental insurance.

    Cons

    Lack of professionalism. Practically all employees, eith the exception of some in managememt positions, work like slaves. Many of the evaluators stay way after five and weekends. This should be illegal.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people

    Pros

    Some employees are very helpful

    Cons

    Boss is a micromanager and tyrant, the pay is sub-par for the amount of work expected on a daily basis, upper management is making the big bucks without sweating while lower level employees are exploited, skills are not marketable for future jobs, most employees are unhappy, no opportunity to move up in the company, boss is not family oriented and discriminates against pregnant women

    Advice to Management

    Start working harder so that everyone is at an equal playing field and lower level employees are not exploited. There needs to be more re-structuring and more new hires to alleviate the workload for everyone.

    Pros

    Coworkers are nice. Independant space to work. If you just want a 8-5 easy job, then here is the right place. The president walks around every day, you can contact him for any issue, he would listen to you.

    Cons

    Environment is bad. Everything is old. Most people are still using 17" screen.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employee a bigger screen and a nice pc.

    Pros

    The office environment is friendly for the most part only a few people who obviously hate their job and take it out on subordinates. Management is very flexible with schedule if you are part time. Management is understanding of the challenges one may face with clients. Yearly raises are common practice.

    Cons

    The job is extremely frustrating due to internal communication on top of already having communication difficulties with the foreign clients. Everyone in every department is drowning in work and not being compensated for the amount of effort expected, pay is very low when starting out. Customer service expectations are extremely low. When a CS representative needs help or answers from senior workers to help clients it is often a struggle to get the answers or fix the solution in order to have happy clients. This is an issue with the office culture, management doesn't care, senior workers don't care, and it trickles down to the entry level workers. Nepotism is obvious. Some are victims of favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    The owner seriously needs to re-consider how things are run, he is stuck in his ways and is not open to changing or improving things. Money is not put back into what is needed to build up the company but rather on minor changes. Expansion is needed in every aspect.


  7. Good entry level position, monotonous in the long-run
