    Pros

    Really nice people. Decent benefit package. Good onboarding program to help you get to know people and other groups

    Cons

    While the Dynamic Organization concept has some great elements to it, it's application seems almost cultish. You either are'DO' or you're not - in which case you're quickly terminated. People are expected to be cheerleaders and always be 'excited', and to never question work being given to them or what's happening around them (blind faith in leadership and the company). The turnover is extraordinarily high as people are always leaving (not wanting to drink the koolaid) or being shown the door. This leaves huge gaps in resources which is a constant struggle for those left behind. Positions are filled at times with a bait & switch type of mentality - just bring in a qualified candidate and plug them in somewhere - regardless of whether that's what they thought they were going to do. All this churn and chaos is bad for business and employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    Rigid stance on the Dynamic Organization is harming employee morale and causing undue churn & chaos for company. USCC's 'cult' environment is becoming well known outside the company.

    Pros

    Excellent benefit packages including 401k, tuition reimbursement, top notch medical and dental, quarterly bonuses, pc purchase program and dynamic rewards to purchase high ticket items. Pay above average starting.

    Cons

    Favoritism seems to be the name of the game. You have to act a certain way to have any chance at advancement. If you are yourself or not a "cheerleader" then you will be blackball and your experience with the company will be stressful and unmanageable. Not only that but expectations are changed daily and it's hard to keep up what is an acceptable job performance.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop putting under educated people in leadership positions. In my experience it is not those who are qualified for leadership that is put in those positions, but those who brown nose the most. It is very demotivating to know that you have to "fake it to make it", diversity is truly not accepted within this atmosphere.
