    I have been working at CRI Advantage full-time

    Pros

    Good support from management. They are good at letting you have time off when you need to. Flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Most employees at the Idaho Falls location advance by being hired by the customer directly. Little opportunity to growth. No cost of living or regular pay increases.

    Advice to Management

    A regular pay increase and recognition for performance and quality work.

    Pros

    They pay you on time.

    Cons

    Disorganized, dishonest, mismanaged. Turned employees against each other. No respect for employees as people.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like people. They are your biggest asset. Specially in a managed services environment.

    I worked at CRI Advantage full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very busy managing information and providing tech support.

    Cons

    This company has gone through many changes over the last few years. Some questionable management left. The company may have improved since I left but it was having some difficulties a year or two ago. Very little upward mobility within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Management is generally stuck doing whatever the company who hired CRI says to do. It is likely the owners who need to negotiate better contracts.

    Pros

    New problems every day. Great people to work with and for.

    Cons

    Management at the time had an Apple sticker on his car. However, it is doubtful that this person knew how to turn on a computer, let alone use it.
