    "CBIS was an outstanding company to work for, Convergys became too 'top heavy'."

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules and shifts.

    Senority seems to put a target on you for being RIF'd.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the knowledge that your senior staff brings, instead of looking at them as a liability in regards to compensation.

    I worked at Convergys full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Got to work on the OnStar team, with all the GM benefits and perks, which was good.

    Cons

    When they hired me, I specifically asked them if I would have to work many weekends, because I had partial custody of my small children, and would need to be off work every other weekend. I was told I would have to work maybe one weekend a month. When I got most of the way through training, I was told I would have to work every weekend until I was promoted to management, and maybe even then. Every few months, you have to shift bid, hoping that you get the same schedule you had before, so that you don't have to rearrange your life, yet again, to match your work schedule. While in training, my gall bladder began to fail, so that, about a year into my job, I had to take what was supposed to be a two-week leave of absence, but because they screwed up, it turned into several months of me not being able to work and not being able to collect unemployment. This happened twice. They finally gave me an accommodation for my custody problem, but after a few months, they rescinded that. Then, after two years of employment, they fired me for getting a kidney stone and coming back to work with a doctor's note, calling that an "unexcused absence." Because of what they did, I have not been able to find another job since. I would not work for these people again if I were starving.

    Advice to Management

    I understand that you have business obligations to fulfill, but you should be more accommodating of your employees. They have lives and obligations the same as you do.
