    Pros

    Good salary and work from home schedule Good benefits Office locations good Bonus structure changes every year but can be generous

    Cons

    The company has lost sight of the true purpose of relocation - client service. They're too busy trying to sign new clients at any cost - including selling services that aren't deliverable. Some on the sales team walk a thin line with ethics and integrity particularly with selling services that aren't deliverable thus leaving the Directors and other teams within the company to salvage credibility with the client. Bonus structure changes every year. Very disjointed between Operations and Account Mgmt with Account Mgmt held accountable for the ops teams but does not have them as direct reports.

    Advice to Management

    The clients are suffering. A regime change needs to happen.

    Pros

    Decent vacation time, some good people (not in management), some departments like IT get chauffeured in limo's to company events

    Cons

    The company lays off workers while increases senior executive pay. Bonuses among the top seems rampant, while pay at the bottom is stagnant. Management will hire their friends they worked with before, pay them a ton of money, only to see them fail, no accountability. No idea what the values are, they seem to shift depending on who they are being applied to. Huge double standard with management.

    Advice to Management

    Shake it up, lose the deadweight in each department, keep an eye on integrity, stop hiring from competitors.

    Pros

    Company tries to keep employees motivated by monthly activities. Lots of PTO

    Cons

    Lots of kissing butt to advance, but not many advancement opportunities. Huge disconnect between employees and managers. Terrible micromanagement. IRCs are blamed for everything. Pay is terrible

    Advice to Management

    It is clear you do not care about your employees, there is a huge feeling of being disposable. Work on that
