    Pros

    I enjoy my position and work with a great group of people in our office and field offices, Great 401k match, nice office, vacation time is good.

    Cons

    Outsource employees take little ownership of work and overdue work falls back on specialist at the last hour. Not enough positive in office, too much emphasis on reports without consideration for reason on report.

    Advice to Management

    More control is needed over outsource company employees and better communication between management and specialists.
