Pros

If you do not have a college degree, it isn't bad money for a call center. There is a money purchase plan in place which pays 6% annually, but you are not fully vested until you have been with the company 4 years. It also has a 401k in place which matches up to 5%.

Cons

Very poor promotion opportunities; low pay for anyone w/ a college degree. It is nearly impossible to get vacation time when you want it.

Advice to Management

Focus more on what type of employee you should be recruiting for a specific decision. If you recruit college grads for a client service position, and fail to provide advancement opportunities, you will not retain talent.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Higher than average pay. Pleasant work environment. As long as a mediocre employee keeps his nose clean, he has a job for life.

    Cons

    Many back office and I.T. jobs being outsourced to India. Talented staff find employment elsewhere due to job stagnation. The result is a company staffed by a majority of long term employees with no ambition/desire to grow just doing the minimum to collect a paycheck. The company has cancelled many inexpensive low-mid staff perks while Senior Management fly expensive Net Jets.

    Advice to Management

    Play hardball and send mediocre employees packing. Drop the policy of requiring managers to provide justification why every vacant job position SHOULDN'T be outsourced to India. Cancel the companies NetJet contract and fly commercial. Restore the policy of requiring staff to rate their manager's performance.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, nice non-managerial staff.

    Cons

    Incompetent management, not proficient in 'cutting out the fat', too cautious, employee satisfaction (regardless of incompetence) valued more than the growth and progression of the business. Poor base salary. Poor performance review.

    Advice to Management

    Know what it is to be an effective manager. Offer extra education or hire people people who have proven track record in successful management. Hire COMPENTENT managers!!!!
