    Decent job, other important factors to consider

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Lenexa, KS

    ProsTuition reimbursement program is awesome! Good benefits. Salary okay. It is a stable job and co- workers are fun to work with. You will learn a lot on the job.

    ConsAdvancement opportunities are difficult to obtain and rely mostly on networking or just lucky timing (nobody wants it or they need it filled fast) Internal job openings - they will let you know they have someone already in mind so why apply. Asking upper management for advice on how to advance they will tell you - "Well, you may have to look elsewhere to gain the experience, we don't have the capacity to train".

    Advice to Senior ManagementYearly Performance Management Development plans - please have those plans be a road map to actually get somewhere instead of being something that just have to be turned in on time.

    Stable job but poor pay for work required.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Lenexa, KS

    ProsMost people are friendly, very stable industry, I've learned a lot here.

    ConsTerrible raises, if you can get 1% consider yourself lucky. Constant changes, while sometimes improve processes, make it very hard to do your job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your good employees better before you lose them.
