    Pros

    Not micromanaged. Management really cares about the staff. If you put yourself out there, and are persistent it is easy to move up and around. CEO cares about the staff, knows a lot, if not most, of the employees by name.

    Cons

    Training is unorganized at times. It can be a bit frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up.

    Pros

    Other employees are nice but very frightened of management. Free lunch a few times every month. Pizza. The checks don't bounce.

    Cons

    Management not interested in good work product focus is entirely on control. Use highly aggressive tactics to get peple to comply with secret agendas. No trust among employees. Work can be sabatoged by management. Lots of scapegoatingqand back stabbing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is the problem, they aren't listening look at the only positive review.

    Pros

    Learning experience, not micromanaged while I was there, climate controlled office, variety of chairs available, headsets provided...I'm not joking around, there was very little positive.

    Cons

    No clear direction, no order, horrible working environment, sales employees routinely stealing from one another, no concern for the client, only the rep's paycheck, owner of the company doesn't respect/want/care about the sales department, only wants to sell the company, additional products are inferior to every competitor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about the employees that drive your business. Realize that you don't know all things, and take advice from the people who are in the positions that you are manipulating.

    Pros

    Easy Job, Not stressful, great co-workers, good benefits, good 401k

    Cons

    Incompetent management, Employees not rewarded for hard work, Pay raises are not exactly based on performance and more about attendance. Contributing ideas on how to improve the company also not rewarded. Inconsistent policies. The job would be great if the management and CEO knew what they were doing. Compared to other places in a similar field they really fall behind in many things. They're training is also flaky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some actual managers with experience. CEO needs to let managers manage as well. It's not a CEO's job to manage every detail of the company. Get an actual training program. The techniques and guides they use change for every thing, from each new class to class. Reward employees for their hard work. This place has a lot of potential but sadly I think it will stay the same until they sell the company.

    Pros

    good pay, excellent benefits, CEO is generous with bonus's, management is helpful. I have seen a slight turn over in most departments, it seems that the employees who left or were asked to leave didn't really want to work. They ask that you arrive on time, work while on the clock and you wont have a problem. I was always treated fairly and felt that management was always available for questions.

    Cons

    They could use some better coffee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ignore the bitter people on here, you are doing a great job. I think the things that are asked of employees is fair and consistant.

    Horrible Place to Work

    Pros

    The only good thing about working here is meeting other co-workers that were 'on the same boat' in regards to their feeling about the company and you tend to create a bond with these fellow co-workers.

    They are trying to change the moral of the company with some new managment and incentives for those that dont miss work but frankly that isnt going to resolve the issues present at this place.

    Cons

    First and foremost the CEO is mainly the root of all the issues there. He directly contacts the entry level employees and basically yells at them for issues managers should be handling. Most of the employees there dont like the CEO. In addition, he has most of the managers in his hands like puppets so essentially they are doing everything he wants when it comes to employee discipline and really have no say on how to manage the people they were hired to manage.

    Besides the CEO, the company itself doesnt compare to any really have any processes in place to communicate important information internally. It took about two years to get monitors up on the walls that are intended to display calls waiting in queue (and they still dont display the calls in queue, they are just up on the walls).

    They also tend to target certain employees and will do what ever it takes to make their live's miserable (like working there isnt bad enough).

    Really high turn over and new employees are not even really introduced to existing employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend a few days working at a real company that way you can see how communication/processes should work in addition on how to treat you employees (especially the good ones that dont come across to often)

    Pros

    Experience looks good on a resume

    Cons

    Where to start: High expectations for not enough money, horrible upper management, COO, & CEO. They target employees and find ways to make their lives hell. Non-appreciative of hard working individuals, they play favorites, and drive a lot of good employees out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue and let the managers be managers. The CEO needs to butt out and they need to learn to appreciate the good employees, value who they have, and they will succeed.
