    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    Constoo many consultants working on-site, constant flux on leadership team, too much of a short-term focus versus longer term focus by the company

    a place where you could utilize skills in time management while multi-tasking

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    Prosa big organization with opportunities to move around the company, to gain exposure in different field while participating in cross-functional projects

    Consan older firm that changes slowly, sometimes behind the pace of market, business might out-grown the in-house systems from time to time

    Advice to Senior Managementprovide more transparency on company direction, more team bonding environment that would increase productivity and efficiency, lead by example when situation arises

    Bad for long term career growth senior management lacks vision

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsPay is good and feedback on activities is given. Moreover junior cadre gel in well and are friendly. You can sometimes move up fast if you are in the proper lobby. Visibility is often there. Immediate bosses are supportive of their juniors

    ConsManagement lacks vision and often makes erratic decisions. Factionalism is rife and your advancement depends on your sycophancy and the faction you are in. Juniors are not well treated by the middle management. Company lacks standard operating procedures in work and too much depends on the individual with no fail safe mechanisms in place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease avoid the perennial firefighting mode. Take sound decisions at the corporate levels like viability of the projects to be taken up. More often than not management indulges in value destruction. Further please try to control this sycophancy culture and curb factionalism

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Customer service

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) South Houston, TX

    ProsGood compensation, room for growth, professional work place, friendly environment, refreshments for employees, bosses are friendly and supportive, fun activities to improve relationship between employees, transparency between different departments. Overtime opportunity. Upper managers are attentive and notice, encourage employee performance.

    ConsStress from angry customers, office in downtown so lunches are expensive and have to walk far. Difficult to move to other departments even the jobs are more suitable with interests, education because of the current position in customer service.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to be attentive to employee performance and needs. Give opportunities for employees to move within the company.
