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

    Pros

    It's okay if you're on the right team with the right supervisors. If not, good luck. Okay healthcare and vacation time, some flexibility with personal time when you need it.

    Cons

    There's a lot of favoritism going on, and promotion to employees that don't pull their weight. Lack of recognition all around. Lack of professionalism from some of the higher ups. You are viewed as a number and are paid less than market value, despite high expectations. Would not recommend

    I have been working at Connection full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Co-workers and Shift Leads.

    Cons

    Management plays favorites, nepotism everywhere (Our Supervisor supervises his brother, Mother works with Daughter, etc.), our Configuration Lab Manager has no experience and looks bewildered and confused at all times.

    I have no faith in our HR to protect employees and even less in our Director.

    Advice to Management

    Know how to do what you are "Managing", or leave advice/opinions about said subject to those that do.

    Pros

    People you work with are very good with the exception of a few. Laid back as far as working, your not rushed. Work is easy most of the time.

    Cons

    Starting pay is below par, but you know this going into the job, don't complain afterwards, you agreed to it. Favoritism with "some" management giving the good jobs to those that are friends. Didn't ever except 3 or 4 times get 40 hours, was around 35 to 37 hours per week, not enough work in order selector department.
