Pros

Opportunities to move within company if you don't enjoy current position. Pay is competitive for job title. Decent benefits. People are good. First line managers are great.

Cons

Not an enterprise view. Siloed work environment. Upper management could be better. They are invisible basically. Work desk area is poor. Slow moving projects.

Advice to Management

Think enterprise when it comes to software. Upper and mid managers need to walk the floor once in a while. Get out of your tower.

    Pros

    The company is very successful with record profits even through the economic downturn. Job security is good if you choose to stay. Starting salaries are fair, but pay increases are weak or lacking.

    Cons

    Staff is inexperienced due to high turnover at all levels in the department including management. This turnover puts added stress on those who remain. Management seems overloaded, stressed, and unhappy at times. Managers need to work on communicating with each other. Due to inexperience, managers have no idea how long things take to complete; they do not understand what employees are actually working on; are not helpful when needed. The department lacks “expertise” very few seem to stick around for the long haul. Employees are expected to work overtime, holidays, and weekends during quarter end busy time with no floating holiday or flex time. You feel taken advantage of because management acts like its just part of the job, but it would be nice if they were more considerate of your time. Even though the company has been very successful with record earnings, pay increases are zero or don’t keep up with cost of living adjustments. Very disappointing when you are one of the people hanging in there, hoping for change, while so many seem to be moving on. Makes you wonder why you stick around? Employees don't seem to get their way unless they threaten to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on keeping current employees and reducing turnover. It seems like management I is constantly having to recruit and fill open positions that they don’t invest in current employees. Allow employees to flex time for extra hours worked, especially time taken away from family to work holidays and weekends. It’s the little things that make employees feel appreciated.

    Pros

    has good products when compared to others in our market. over all very competitive, and there actual branch hours are good.

    Cons

    horrible structure, technology is way out dated, commission is a joke. to perform simple tasks requires a rediculous process. overall not what was presented.

    Advice to Management

    the schedule issues seriously need to be addressed, many people are coming and going. through out my years here i have seen more people leave, due to frustration with the way things are.
