I worked at Cunningham Lindsey full-time (Less than a year)
Overall, the shared services office is a good place to work. Large staff so plenty of interaction and opportunities to make friends and feel comfortable. They try to organize and promote a lot of employee activities and events. Tons of free food and beverages and the office is beautiful. It can be a fun place to work if you are outgoing and like to drink with your coworkers after hours. Specific to my department, I had a great boss and a flexible schedule. My position was low stress and overpaid for the difficulty and volume of work I was responsible for. The technology available is advanced and efficient.
Turnover in all departments is incredibly high. The company would rather bring in a group of temps who will leave before their 90 days is up instead of promote from within. Upper management does not respect, value, or communicate with the support staff. Office politics are rampant here - constant gossiping, backstabbing, lying, and playing favorites play a huge role in destroying company morale. Out dated and impractical policies and procedures will keep you from being promoted or from adding any value to the organization. They are stuck in the "that's how we've always done it" system.
Advice to Management
Invest in your employees - listen to them, communicate with them, take them seriously. Stop playing favorites and stop letting your department managers manipulate each other and you.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cunningham Lindsey.
Met with the department supervisor and the shared services supervisor. Basic interview questions with a semi casual feel. Asked about my education and previous work experience, computer skills, where did I see myself, long term goals, etc. Very standard and straightforward interview. I felt confident after the interview that I would most likely get the job.
