    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The Benefit package was outstanding. The company as a whole was nice to work for.

    Cons

    The call center atmosphere always has issues. They couldn't seem to keep a call center manager. The company has a tendency to be more matrix oriented than customer service oriented.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the newest person on your call center floors. Ask them what they see. Ask them how they would change things if they could. Listen, Listen, Listen. Talk to the people that have been there for years. Their ideas are not always based on being stuck in the past. They deal with your programs, your customers, and they problems that come, on a daily basis. If anyone knows what could help them, it is your employees.

    Pros

    Strong financially-backed company. Good benefits program after meeting certain time period. Was proud to work for WM when I first started.

    Cons

    Very corporate driven atmosphere without much consideration of individual market areas. Decision making process is handled primarily from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Not to forget where most of you started in the company. Respect those lower then you because they are also responsible for your paycheck.
