    I needed a job so I landed here. I was able to eat and get by but certainly not a place that would help your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To upper management: You only cares about the numbers. Your employees are working in a service based industry that has to deal with the families of deceased shareowners. If they got better pay and didn't have upper management angry for every little thing that happens, then I'm sure your workers would have a great dedication in their work. The cutthroat style of your office is too much to handle, you should learn from your lower management staff, they do a much better job running their departments than you do in running the business.

    Pros

    Pretty good pay and good benefits.
    Depending what your position is, commissions can be VERY lucrative.

    Cons

    employees are routinely "encouraged" to stay later and come in on weekends. Names are taken of the people who do this.

    Communication is terrible. Messages from different levels are often conflicting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really THINK about the policies you are enacting before setting them in motion. Maybe invite different groups to vet the changes before adopting them - and then changing them back a day later after huge negative feedback or unrealized consequences rear their heads.

    Give new ideas more than a knee-jerk reaction before shooting them down and making people feel like crap.

    Communicate more openly across your groups - we all still work together but have no idea what is being told to the other guys.

    Start hiring - LOTS of employees are looking for alternatives.

    I worked at Keane UP

    Pros

    base salary of 45K plus a 5% commission package to start. Excellent benefits including education reimbursement.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. Upper management constantly wanting more. Owned by private equity firm, constantly looking to hire cheaper to skim the fat off the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    your employees are people too.
