    I have been working at CDI Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Resources are thin and everyone pulls at least double duty. Just know if you work here, you will be doing more than your original job description for sure.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and focus on having quality people to gain more sales to raise the bottom line, not firing employees to reflect a "cost savings" on financial reports.

    Pros

    Big Company
    Good Accounts
    Good Back Office Support
    Has been in business for several decades--definitely has been around

    Cons

    There is lots of layers of management. I'm not sure they really know how to grow. It seems like management just wants to keep their jobs but nothing more.

    Pros

    Benefits aren't too bad but that's it!

    Cons

    Micromanagement
    Ineptitude with Management (Especially with Contract Negotiations)
    Management and employee churn
    Lied to me about the position
    Lack of opportunities for growth
    Stress level through the roof along with blood pressure
    Disgustingly low pay
    401k is a joke
    Cross Lanes has WAY too much control
    The most soul-sucking position on the planet

    Advice to Management

    a) Listen to your employees. They have a voice and it needs to be heard!
    b) Quit the micromanaging!!!
    c) Treat the front line employees much better. Start with increasing their pay because of the garbage they have to deal with.
    d) Better opportunities for training
    e) Start treating your employees with respect

    Good initial pay, organization and training. Was able to work from home and do lots of different kinds of work over several years.

    Subsequent raises and COLA adjustments are difficult to come by...but not impossible.

    Raises and COLA adjustments are among the most important ways to prove you are investing in your people.
