    For a call center, good training and support was provided by management to employees.

    I worked at TMP Directional Marketing full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company honestly tried to satisfy its client's customers.

    Cons

    In my opinion, too much importance was given to average call handling time. In many cases, my calls had to be ended sooner than I believed they should have been to conform to the AHT guidelines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the proper handling of customer situations than to how quickly a call can be completed.

    Pros

    *Benefits are above average.
    *TMP does have many great, exciting brands to work with.
    *Usually a younger demographic of hungry, enthusiastic employees.

    Cons

    *Compensation is far, far below average.
    *The usually younger demographic of hungry, enthusiastic employees burn out fast. Typically because they are not listened to, promoted, appreciated or taken seriously.
    *Senior management is chaotic
    *turn-over is very high
    *the company is always down-sizing/layoffs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *promote talent with in
    *listen to younger leaders in the company
    *invest in young, hungry management - vs. older, traditional management that does not know what it takes to succeed in a web 2.0 world

    Pros

    Twemty-one days of PTO a year isn't anything to complain about and neither is the flex time and that's all I can think of.

    Cons

    Everything else is a downside. Management teams are either incompetent or do not know what the term manage means. Account teams teach their managers how to use simple computer programs, i.e. finding an email in Outlook, sending a meeting invitation, how to print documents, etc. This is a company that plays the favorites game well even if it makes no sense as a beneficial business decision. They keep clients that cost the company money and they shift Account Executives to different accounts frequently so that by the end of the year, the client has had as much as 5 different contacts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The office morale is extremely low because your employees are extremely under appreciated and are paid a garbage salary. Stop "rewarding" your employees from the Target dollar bin and treat them like they are people.
    Management in the field offices need to be in their positions because they've demonstrated that they know all facets of the job which doesn't always equate to the number of years they have been employed at the company. Management needs young minds that are open to ideas and possibilities rather than managers who are stuck on old ways and lack basic common sense.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits. 21 paid days of vacation on your first day of work, good medical and dental.

    Cons

    Incompetent management team. Felt like high school, very cliquish. Couldn't wait to get out of there!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employee morale is the worst I have ever experienced and your pay is even worse!

    Pros

    PTO in benefits package is good. Good location in Glendale.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything else. Management was often derogatory and disrespectful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show employees that they are valued by respecting their time and knowledge. Share information, treat them well, allow them to grow. Don't promote simply by time with the company.
