    I worked at NCO Financial Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The pay rate was what I wanted. I heard about all the possible commission from management and some employees. It was casual business attire. The building was in a nice neighborhood but lacking within. The hours were great.

    Cons

    People were not friendly. Management could care less if you were there. The decor was depressing. The bathrooms disgusting. 80 percent of the population was morbidly obese.They needed health plan. The time clock? you had 2 mins before or 2 mins after or it was half an occurrence. Very, very sad and depressing place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating people like cattle. Stop socializing long enough to help your team when asked a question. Your clock in method is absolutely ridicules. Your management acts like they are on a power trip because they are too green to know they are just a cow too. Your best management are the trainers and they are in another country. hum?

    Was a good company at one point

    I have been working at NCO Financial Systems

    Pros

    I've worked at nco for over 15 years. I have moved up through the company and have enjoyed learning.

    Cons

    No more growth. Company has not given raises in over 5 years. Several tenured colleagues have moved to other companies to advance their careers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address your workforces concerns. Stop turning a blind eye. Raises and fair compensations are critical pieces to making a strong productive work force.

    I worked at NCO Financial Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent co-workers - Everyone on the floor is genuinely nice and extremely helpful.

    Cons

    There is no real management here. No one knows what they're doing, "supervisor" positions were given to people who cannot accurately handle calls in an effort to prevent justified complaints on the floor. Representatives often received better assistance from others on the floor who paid attention in training.

    There is absolutely NO opportunity for advancement.

    Favoritism shown by management is very obvious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the training advice from senior representatives - they know the issues faced by newer members on the floor. Also, incentives for bonuses or advancement opportunities would go a long way in keeping employees for more than 3 months.

    I worked at NCO Financial Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There WAS money to be made. However, the huge amount of politics at this company is very high. Forget brown nosing, unless you know someone or are some young girl who can eagerly put out.

    Cons

    Money earning potential was good until the company put it's nose up to employee retention and decided that employee moral was non existent and not important at all. They always treat you like just another warm body that can be replaced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating your good people like you don't care about them and it doesn't matter what they do for your company. Instead you treat the people that are bad for your business, GOOD and you put them up on some sort of pedestal. What ever happened to loyal employers? The history books are a good lesson to these.

    Pros

    I met some good friends here. During downtime there is plenty of time to socialize.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about employee morale. They force more and more work on the employees which adds stress. It used to be nice to talk to your friends during downtime but then they increased the workload to the point you have no downtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve employee morale. Stop making employees do two jobs when they are only trained for one.

    I worked at NCO Financial Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    NCO Financial Systems is a great place for a professional to improve his/her business, communication and social skills. I had the advantage of working for direct supervisors and senior management who were very supportive, fostered a diverse workforce and promoted members of the workforce to better serve the employee as well as the employer.

    Cons

    Lack of educational workshop opportunities for management and senior employees.
    Lack of opportunity for more advanced employees to apply skills from other fields.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities for management and senior employees to learn and improve communication and workforce skills (Franklin Covey, Dale Carnegie & Associates, Skillpath Seminars, etc.).
    Recruit more top companies (Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, etc.) and provide strong incentives for new employees to excel in sales, marketing and customer service.
