      Pros

      Wonderful benefits/respect. Good people. Positive environment. Great place to work overall

      Cons

      SNOW tickets. They keep outsourcing their developers which results in extremely outdated apps that become hard to change and no one knows what they are doing, like ever. Too many silos. The red tape in this company is absolutely terrible. It is costing them a lot of money with minimal protection.

      Good company to work for.

      Mar 15, 2021 - Relationship Specialist in Jacksonville, FL
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      If you’re a hard working intelligent individual, you will for sure grow and go far within the company. The culture has come a long way and it is absolutely 100times. better than 6-7yesrs ago.

      Cons

      The downside is that there are many individuals that have been with the company for over 14-15 years that have became lazy/complacent with doing the bare minimum, there is this sense of entitlement at times, and so you end up picking up their slack and eventually end up overworked and barely have enough time for yourself/family. Not everyone that has been that long with the company is like that, but there is a very large population that is.

      Not Worth It

      Feb 23, 2021 - Multiple Positions in Portsmouth, NH
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The managers are good people trying their absolute best, some people who started there at the right time made some good money, my exit interview with corporate showed that the company overall cared about my wellbeing

      Cons

      The pay is not worth the struggle (very hard work with little pay), most positions don't actually take advantage of your talents and are interchangeable from one person to anyone else, lots of erroneous titles/promotions given with no new responsibility, the culture is very high school, corporate is very disconnected and wants too much control over individuals (if you want to get coffee with a committee you're on, that event needs corporate approval first), the health care is horrifically expensive and doesn't even cover a lot, training is very drive-by, departments are divided almost to the point of rivalry
