    I did not like the rudeness I had to put up with through out the day, but as long as I could get them to understand, that's all that mattered.

    Pros

    Worked at home, no commute no wardrobe expense etc.

    Cons

    Horrible supervisors, low pay, angry callers and a lot of stress. Very high turnover, they do not want to ever give raises so they fire most people at one year and start over.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make the employees handle everything from tech support to billing. Train them well at one or two specialties.

    Pros

    Worked from home...One of the best things about the company was PTO. At times if they had too many employees working you were able to get off early. That was about the only thing.

    Cons

    Management was horrible! Very, very mean and rude. Seems as if a lot of management were mostly on power trips. Even if you were doing OK they wouldn't applaud you for that, they would only try to pick your flaws and would write you up instead of coaching. Pay was low I was in the tech department pay was 9.50 hour. I advanced in 6 months with 2 raises and ended up at 10.20 a week later I was fired for reasons that are still unknown to me. I heard if you advance too much too quickly they will find a reason to fire you and that is exactly what happened.

    Advice to Management

    Try to talk to your employees instead of treating them lower than you.

    Pros

    Individuals and people that cared for one another

    Cons

    Since the Asurion buy out, the company is now all corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Sell NEW back to Fred Shaufeld.

    Pros

    For a small organization it really focused on its employees needs. There was room for advancement for the go getters and overall they took care of all employees it was simplified, you did your job and you were awarded.

    Cons

    It was work from home, not too many Cons, but for the ones who thought they just could call in because they didn't want to work it made others work harder.

    Advice to Management

    There are great managers and there are sub-par managers. The ones who really focused and made the connection to their teams really did well.

    Pros

    Great vibrant atmosphere, one that made you want to grow with the company.
    Good place to hone negotiation skills in dealing with C level executives.
    Ideal if you like to be part of the forces that shape your business objective.

    Cons

    Asurion's direction negated many of the Pro's and brought in their own workforce to slowly push out natives.
    The obvious steps to follow after a buy out left many in career limbo or out of job.
    Original Leadership had a better sense of direction in respective market categories.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the old company culture.
