Pros

Semi-relaxed office environment.
Friendly coworkers
Call volume is not overly demanding, management focuses more on productivity

Cons

Low pay
Boring and repetitive work
They require a college degree but the work isn't that advanced at the beginning.

Advice to Management

Show respect to all employees. Management shows favoritism when punishing or rewarding employees. Consistently late employees may be eligible for employee of the month while others may be reminded of work hours when arriving just a few minutes late.

    I worked at Verbatim Advisory Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty decent job for people straight out of college looking for office experience. Cold calling but not in a sales role so people are typically not too rude on the phone. Definitely can look pretty good on a resume. Small, casual office where most people are in the same role as you or were previously. Never really asked to work overtime or take the job home with you in any way. Easy enough job and can make solid money on monthly bonuses if you put in average effort. Room for advancement if you demonstrate that you understand what they're doing overall as a company beyond just your daily tasks.

    Cons

    Projects get repetitive sometimes. Phone based work is not necessarily for everyone. Their sister company disregards Verbatim and forces certain aspects on them like vacation and benefits that would otherwise be more attractive if it were run as its own company.

    Advice to Management

    Try to tone down the micro-management somewhat (it's generally fine but some people can be overbearing). Try to get more autonomy from the sister company - management seems to know how to make it a more attractive work place but has their hands tied.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, but that's only because of how simple the job is. It also comes with the territory of low compensation.

    Cons

    Very cheap owner who refuses to invest in the company, this company is a subsidiary of another he owns and merely a cash flow for him.

    The management team is completely inept, and none of them would be managers at a good company with real ambitions.

    Pay is crap. You're better off being unemployed and devoting all your time to finding a job than wasting your time here.

    Advice to Management

    You are the problem. The company will never be better than its weakest links.
