    Pros

    Fantastic People in most business teams. Region managers and below have a great knowledge of front line issues and how to solve them. Supportive Mid level management

    Cons

    No loyalty. Culture is not for everyone. Director level and above can be disconnected from the challenges of the field world.

    Pros

    There are some nice people here, I honestly can't tell you why they stay but they make the days almost tolerable.

    Cons

    The culture is flat out horrible. I chose to ignore all of the reviews here on Glassdoor because I couldn't believe it was that bad but it is and 90% of what you read here is true. The "core hours" are archaic and ridiculously enforced. What passes for offices haven't been updated in what seems to be decades, they are sub par by 1990's standards for what a good office should be let alone modern standards. Upper management is a laughing stock, they micromanage and put forth no type of vision or strategy what so ever. The "Base Camp" on boarding training is ineffectively long and basically a crash course in why working in a call center is a soul sucking job you should avoid unless you have no choice. The kicker is that management is so gun ho on this program that no one dares criticize it but in reality is it as garbage as the rest of this place. Day to day work is tedious because the processes and systems are nearly unusable in most cases. During the interview process I was told that the company is "working hard to change" yet in an all company meeting when asked about making changes to attract talent and make work life better the response from upper management was essentially, if you don't like it leave. Many people are taking this to heart and there is an almost constant stream of resignations and open unfilled positions.

    Advice to Management

    The rumors are out there that a sale is eminent. Just sell and get out because it is obvious there is no desire to compete and strive to be a great organization.

    Pros

    If you have a good Manager, projects can be very rewarding and provide great experience for advancing ones career

    Cons

    Benefits are competitively the bottom of the barrel for Engineering. Large number of employees that would prefer to move on but feel stuck because they are in green card processing. Poor planning by upper management has resulted in mandatory cancellations of vacations and long nights and weekends for months at a time that could have been avoided. Upper management has little ability to understand intangibles.

    Advice to Management

    Take money off the table; compensate your highly skilled employees fairly so they can focus on doing great things.
