    Great place if you're fresh out of college

    Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
    Carrollton, TX

    ProsThe skills and experience of Corporate America are some of the best that you can learn especially if you're fresh out of college. Many top of the line classes offered that you can use outside of the company.

    ConsPay could be better, along with better benefits. Very little growth so not the place to stay for an extending period of time.

    Good Company Values

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
    Carrollton, TX

    ProsReally great people friendly and helpful

    ConsI can't think of any cons except that they laid off a few people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think that if a person is contracting and they were invited to attend a group outing the contractor shouldn't feel as though they have to pay to attend the outing if they were invited.

    Politics as usual

    IT Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Carrollton, TX

    ProsThe compensation and the work life balance is good for most employees. From a business perspective, the business has continued to grow regardless of the dismal economic outlook for most businesses.

    ConsMost things flow from/through San Francisco and therefore almost all potential career advancement opportunities are in San Francisco. Lots of things are being outsourced, in particular in the IT space.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo a better job of protecting your in-house expertise. Reward subtance and merit over polished presentation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Proceed with Caution... be sure to ask Questions

    Accounting Associate (Current Employee)
    Carrollton, TX

    Pros+ Career development, i.e. Six Sigma training is available to pretty much everyone
    + Fortune 15 company on your resume
    + Opportunity to work on different projects across teams
    + Opportunity to get high visibility if that's your thing
    + Opportunity to advance but don't be in a hurry, it could take a while.
    + New emphasis is being put on talent development
    + New structuring of HR allows for less partiality when it comes to a need for mediation

    Cons+ They fired everyone in the AP, Audit & Controls area and replaced them with younger workers who no doubt cost less. No one knows what they are doing. This review is general but a lot of it is stemming from these areas.
    + Bad treatment of employees: after firing all the seasoned people, the few senior managers that were left pretty much quit/walked out. The few non-exempt employees who managed to keep their jobs were left & they're so angry and scared of being fired, that they do not share their knowledge - if anything, they train new people incorrectly out of anger or because they think it will make them look that much more valuable.
    + Bad treatment of employees: some of the newer supervisors like to pick with & demean their non-exempt employees. I think some of it is them taking out their frustrations & deflecting (b/c they don't don't what they are doing) on the easiest target. I'm guessing the rest is they know newbies are eager to please & keep their jobs, blind, and sometimes don't understand that there should be mutual expectation (especially the younger ones).
    + Bad communication: new expectations are unveiled but no one can clearly define what they are, automation is the goal which means future cuts, but one wants to talk about that either, new processes are put into place but they make no sense & few people are even aware... just overall bad communication.
    + Lack of job knowledge: from the top down (since everyone is new) and lack of direction, well communicated expectations, and the tools/support required to carry out tasks, complete projects, and meet goals... I mean there aren't even any current, or sometimes any at all, SOPs in place.
    + Lack of team building, or the feeling of cohesive, unified departments - no one trusts anyone, and it's understandable when management fires everyone, people are quick to "throw" each other "under the bus," no one talks, its a stressful environment where most people keep their head down.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be the company that is successful in spite of its people, be the company that is successful because of its people.

    Invest in your non-exempt employees... foster their development, treat them with respect, set realistic stretch goals, and provide the tools and support for the achievement. Make sure they understand the vision and expectations so they can go after it and be measured accordingly. Invest in your management - make sure they know the ins and outs of their jobs & understand how important it is to work alongside their subordinates, not just delegate and deflect. Change the environment... the thick air, the distrust, the fear of being fired, etc. just makes for an awful work space. Lean is good... cuts and automation are good... you're at the top likely because of these contributing factors... but don't be successful in spite of, but rather because of.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Low pay, uninteresting/unimportant work

    Senior Accountant (Current Employee)
    Carrollton, TX

    ProsIf you are looking for a job where you can blend into the crowd and not be tasked with doing much of anything, this might be the company for you. Most employees really arn't expected to do much of anything here.

    Cons-No interesting, challenging, or changing work.
    -Pay is substantially below market (typically 10-20% below average for any given position).
    -Raises are fixed at 2-3% per year, regardless of performance.
    -Bonuses are fixed at 5%, regardless of performance and job grade, until you're in senior management.
    -Health insurance here is extremely expensive and provides very little benefit.
    -The company 401k only provides a limited match and has EXTREMELY BAD choices of funds, and there is a mountain of paperwork to get the self directed 401k. (Oh, and you can't move money from the standard 401k into the self directed 401k without having your account in one of the terrible default fund choices)

    Advice to Senior ManagementI believe that quite a bit of the workforce, from the admins through senior management could be thinned out. Many people spend a large portion of their days doing not very much work. Additionally, compensation for everyone else should be brought up to market level and benefits should be generally improved.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
