      Wouldn’t Recommend

      Pros

      Coworkers, nature of the job (helping people), ability to work remote, salary

      Cons

      Management - this is the most micromanaged I have ever been. It was not like this previously. Management turnover has caused a toxic impact on the department. There is no room for growth. Reports on numbers are pulled daily rather than looking at the quality of work being done. Employees who are thorough, work hard and efficiently, and who express interest in growth are stifled. Employees who “push things along”, cut corners, and avoid work are praised. The turn around is so high. There is no more flexibility in the job. Every tiny thing is micromanaged. Employees aren’t treated as the competent adults they are.
