Pros – Teleworking is normal for a large percentage of the employees due to the travel requirements and is an option for those employees whose work is more securely bound to a particular office.
The company is very conscientious in making teleworking, communications and document sharing as efficient and user-friendly as possible.
The company strives to employ experts in its field and is extremely concerned about giving its clients high quality products and services. You will be surrounded by professionals in the field.
Opportunities exist for cross-training and expanding your knowledge base.
Overall, it is a very positive environment with a 'can-do' attitude.
Cons – This is not a "cushy" travel job. Our group was pushed to give a full day's worth of work even when the client was located several hours away. If you drove, that meant you sat up late, getting your work done to compensate for the lost time.
Unfortunately, one person who is disrespectful to both clients and coworkers is still there. One bad apple in such a small barrel can be a dangerous thing.
Advice to Senior Management – While this is a fantastic company, there is always room for improvement. Try to smooth out some of the rough edges through offering additional training for senior management and staff. Consider the backgrounds of the employees. Some, while experts in their field, have very little business savvy and could use more training there.
When feedback is offered, consider the source, their knowledge base and experience before discounting it simply because it is not what you want to hear.
