Former Employee - Technical Support Representative in Norwalk, CT
Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Team was good and very cooperative.
Direct supervision was fair, supportive and reasonable.
Relatively low pressure for a call center.

Cons

Corp. policy is to use contract workers with no offer or path of conversion.
Even looking at a member of corporate management the wrong way would get you black-balled.
The mere mention of a complaint about no conversion opportunity will result in termination.

Advice to Management

Hire middle and upper corporate management that is more concerned with accomplishing the claimed mission instead of power jockeys and egomaniacs who act in direct contradiction to all company and and corporate "mission" statements.
