    Transparent as mud

    Support Analyst (Current Employee)
    Stamford, CT

    ProsGreat people to work with, across the globe. Incidents get solved; I've experienced real teamwork when it matters.

    ConsPromotion and advancement don't seem to be based on merit. Management announces some "new improvement in process" but then it's back to the same old same old. Knowledge is not valued as much as it used to be (too expensive?). No training. No advancement. People in Stamford beginning the exit, now that the jobs are moving to Nashville. Depressing overall culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat us like adults and inform us of the plan for our area.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Could be better

    Executive Assistant (Current Employee)
    Stamford, CT

    ProsIf you have the right manager behind you, then your opportunities will be good when it comes to career growth.

    ConsWork life balance is very good. Depending on the department you can work from home when necessary. Laid back attitude in the office.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
