    Pros

    Great opportunity to make some money. Excellent benefits

    Cons

    Long hours and rotating shifts makes it tough on the body when you have to rotate from nights to days every week.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the flip flopping of nights and days. Stay consistent on your decisions.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, great compensation, very diverse work environment on a daily basis, respected leaders in management positions

    Cons

    projects were too ambiguous at times, future opportunities were unclear, somewhat of a "fly by the seat of your pants" approach but that also made it interesting

    Advice to Management

    Overall I was very satisfied with management as they were very helpful and encouraging. In the future, I'd recommend the internship program be more structured so students would know exactly what they were getting in to and the goals they were trying to achieve.

    Pros

    They arent afraid to pay their employees well. Also training is a must. They like to invest in their employees

    Cons

    When times get slow no job is safe. There are a lot of office politics that seem protect your job more than your accomplishments

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to who is your lower level management. They can make or break your company

    Pros

    Not micromanaged by bosses. Mon.- Fri. job with weekends off. Very diverse work environment with friendly and helpful people.

    Cons

    Needs a better training program for new completions employees. Manager is not in the same city and may sometimes be hard to get a hold of if you have questions.

    Advice to Management

    Work on developing a better training program for completion sales reps. Ask sales reps for suggestions about how they can develop the area.
