Pros

Great training program, benefits start on day one (increase once probation is complete), extremely positive work environment.

Cons

As a customer care rep, day-to-day experiencedepends on the manager you're assigned to. My manager is forward-thinking, involves team in planning events, contests, "team builders". Other teams are worried about not meeting sales targets; I've seen more than one agen close to tears for not meeting hers.

Advice to Management

Give all team members a chance to work on extra projects and have a chance to get off the phones once in a while; not just the ones who are constantly brown-nosing.

    Pros

    Company is very community and people focused. There is a significant push from management for employees to develop a career path. Training opportunities are available.

    Environment is very work-life balanced oriented, ability to work from home and with a flexible schedule.

    The work we do is not micro-managed, and team members are given the opportunity to debate different approaches with management.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement are not competitive with standard consulting firms--as a result compensation is not as competitive, especially after the first 3 years (however hours are much more reasonable).

    Constant re-orgs/re-structuring are stressful and make it hard to work in a strategic planning setting.

    Sometimes getting new ideas implemented you run into some 'old school' directors/managers who shut down innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Get a handle on the re-orgs.
