    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThey do a good job of providing continuing education oppertunities. Very stable company where you don't have to worry about losing your job.

    Good, not great place to work

    Supervisor (Former Employee) Memphis, TN

    ProsCo-workers are awesome to work with. Work live balance is great, no overtime necessary.

    ConsNo upward mobility, lack of training. Slow pace environment not for the young at heart. RFP process is horribly, it takes entirely to long to make a inform decision.

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

    ProsGreat benefits with lots of vacation time. Relatively steady job with average pay for the Memphis area.

    ConsEvery time I tell people where I work I recieve groans and grimaces. Known more for its corrupt politics than anything.
