    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great location to raise a family - family oriented culture.
    Abundant career opportunities and an openness to move across functions.
    Very ethical company.
    Low cost living.
    Great beaches in the summer.

    Cons

    People are allowed to move too quickly from role to role with no accountability for what they leave behind.
    Small town can be limiting for single colleagues looking for an active life.
    Work is dependent on relationships and not processes which hinders effectiveness and ability to transition roles effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Explore a better talent system to identify, develop and engage talent from day 1. It isn't enough to recruit talent and leave them to fend for themselves.

    Current Employee - Trade Partner Support Specialist in Knoxville, TN
    Current Employee - Trade Partner Support Specialist in Knoxville, TN
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Employees have decent benefits, and some of the ongoing projects are making it easier for us to serve our trade partners effectively. Communication is improving, and immediate leadership (team Leads and Operations Advisors) are effective and competent in their positions.

    Cons

    There are gross discrepancies between how employees and contractors are treated, even though contractors are expected to meet the same standards of productivity and quality as employees. Hiring freezes and arbitrary policies are pushing out contractors who are handlers of key accounts, which is having a detrimental effect on overall employee morale as well as turnover rates.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop the double standards; hire the contractors who do some of the key work with the company. Remember that a focus on quantitative data needs to be balanced with qualitative data.
