Company's doing well for now. Did a good job during the recession in terms of retaining numbers and overtaking competitors

    Pros

    Nice office, people were decent, opportunities were okay, company is doing well and seems well positioned for long term growth.

    Cons

    Some of the management really doesn't seem to care about its employees, where they sort of treat you as expendable.

    Advice to Management

    Value the good employees more, especially if they are working harder than you are. Don't be afraid of offering praise.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The schedule is flexible and project based, good for retired people or stay at home moms who don't want to work year round.

    Cons

    No background check is required, they take just about anyone who claims they have a college degree to score. There are 2 15minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch break, otherwise you work all day in silence and monotony.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay your scorers more. They give up a lot of time effort and energy for minimal compensation and no steady promise of work.
