Vertical Screen Reviews
Pros – Basic benefits are free. They have a community garden and managers are accessible without email for the most part.
Paid lunch and PTO along with holiday pay which is your base pay+over time pay. Also, you get paid to sit on your butt and ask a few questions 100 times a day give or take.
Cons – Very awkward work environment. I understand it's a business but there is very little mingling between people. Lunch is only a half hour long so if you want something to eat you better order it prior to taking your break. The restrooms don't have toilet seat covers. For some this might not be a problem but for a company this size, that should be a liability.
Advice to Senior Management – Stop with the ridiculously long queues and stop making people feel bad for not wanting to work over time. Also, make the work instructions searchable so you don't have to send an email and wait 2 hours for a response.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Benefits. Unlimited overtime after you "have high production". You can eat outside during your pathetic 30 minute break.
Cons – They want you to be a company molded robot. You have the adhere to many bogus policies that are illustrated in the pathetic excuse for a company handbook. Overall not a great place to work. The turnover of employees is the worst I've ever seen in my life. If the CEO should open his eyes.
Advice to Senior Management – Know your company is a joke & make an effort to keep people there.

Pros – The people are nice and the trainers are friendly. Also, I did not receive my benefits from the company but i was told that they are some of the best my former co-workers have found.
Cons – Let me provide some insight from my position within the company to add some credibility to this review. I left in 2014 after working for two years in the Human Resources Research Department. I did well within the department and was given different duties to work on since i seemed to understand the inner workings of the job. I quit on my own volition and got positive feedback from my co-workers and mid level management so I am not some exiled worker just looking to get back at the company, this is my honest opinion.
-If you are in it for the money, work at a McDonald's. The pay is more appropriate to your duties.
- Raises are as minimal as possible and a workers statistics are combed through to find every flaw to knock the raise down a penny at a time.
-Performance of an employee is calculated so raises are easy to deny and action plans are easy to implement and enforce which will deny you of your raise.
-If you want to work in a hellish slave like environment then 18th century America is a better time period for you.
-Very little chance for advancement and a pay increase.
- if you want to be ridiculed and shown charts and graphs of your bathroom breaks and "excessive socialization" work here!
-This place is a revolving door and the people who actually stay long enough will be forced to correct others mistakes and if you don't you will receive errors for said mistakes.
-Validators (work verifiers) will take personal vendettas against you and you will be forced to abide by their egos.
-During busy times you are overloaded with work and are pressured to complete your excess work or else more graphs and charts will come your way.
-Socialization is frowned upon. Low cubicle walls and patrolling Supervisors and management have no problem telling you impolitely to return to your work. In addition they have no qualms about going through your emails and confronting you if they deem it excessive socializing.
-This company does background screenings so if you want to move on and find another job they will pull you into Human Resources and confront and try to intimidate you in an attempt to keep you within the company.
-This is a very low pay high stress environment and i would not recommend it to anyone. Within the surrounding areas there are other companies which pay more for the same or more practical work expectations.
Again, I know it may not seem like it but I did well in my multiple position but still dealt with everything in this list. This is not a good company and the only reason it is still running is because of the low pay of its employees. There are other places to work in this area which pay better and have more realistic expectations.
Advice to Senior Management – Compensation is poor, promotions are very limited and your expectations for what you are putting your employees through are unrealistic. If you don't want to hear the owner yelling through the building so often get him to compensate workers and provide more adequate training for your employees, it will turn the company around and the work environment will not be as harsh. Also, do not have your Human Resources Department try to intimidate employees who are trying to leave. It is unprofessional and pathetic and a well run company would not have to try and stop so many employees from running for the door.

Pros – The best aspect about this company is the healthcare and 401k.
Cons – Where to begin, where to begin. To start Philadelphia recently had one of the worst recorded winters ever, yet there was not a single day that the company was closed. It was just reckless having your employees drive in those conditions. Now onto actually working there. Its really easy, but they make it seem like you are doing the hardest most impressive task ever. You literally will google a company and call that company to find out dates of employment. Management will listen to your phone calls to make sure you are doing well, but will never offer any advice if you are not. While you get healthcare, you make peanuts. When you do make a simple mistake the validators will send the information back to you asking questions in a condescending way. I usually made about 150 phone calls a day, and am glad that i will never have to again.
Advice to Senior Management – Burn that sucker down and start from scratch.

Pros – Healthcare, lunch-ins and OT. Everything else just sucks.
Cons – Not allowed to talk or use your phone. When the weather is extremely bad, you're still expect to come in. Your PTO is combined with Sick time, vacation and personal days. You're only allowed to acrue up to 14 days of PTO. Management is horrible and so is HR. They make you feel stupid constantly. The whole building atmosphere is completely strange. Since no one is allowed to talk, everyone is awkward. Pay is not that good for all the work you do.
Advice to Senior Management – You need to revise the whole building set up and company policies.

Pros – The is absolutely nothing good I could ever say about this company. If you want a company that respects and values their employees keep looking!
Cons – I wish I could give negative 5 stars. This is truly the worst place I have ever worked at. You are treated like a child. The company has no appreciation for their employees let alone any regard for their safety and well-being. You are expected to come to work even when there is a declared state of emergency and penalized if you don't. There is no incentive to stay with the company. They raises are absolutely appalling and seniority means nothing. After many years with the company you will be treated the same as someone who just walked in the door. It is impossible to survive on what they pay unless you work A LOT of overtime and will still barely make ends meat. The COO is a bully and makes sure to treat everyone like they are way beneath him. HR ignores serious complaints about sexual harassment and favoritism in the workplace. I can't even put into words how bad the company truly is. Do not take these good reviews seriously. They were very clearly written by upper management or HR. I honestly do not know one employee who is happy at the company and I am friendly with majority of the office.
Advice to Senior Management – Fire all management and HR and start new. Take a second to actually look at how the employees are treated.
Pros – This is the best job I've ever had. It's a really cool place to work - great building, free employee appreciation lunches, and even an employee garden - with a professional gardner. I got a ton of training and there are always postings for advancement opportunities.
Cons – Nothing that I can think of.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Pros – The people I work with are wonderful as are my supervisors. I am able to communicate with those in my department well.
Cons – The pay could be more equal to the work expected however there are yearly raises that are pretty much gaurenteed as long as you work.
Advice to Senior Management – Please look at your employees and realize the pay scale is not equal to other companies of the same business.
