      Pros

      The pay is decent and they have great benefits if your part of their click, or are a friend!

      Cons

      Bias, Prejudice, and if your minority you have no chance of moving up or placed in a leadership role of any sort. They hire friends unqualified and are clicked up. They use the same tactic to keep all minorities down and also being open & honest will damage your reputation. They cover up for each other when they know they are doing wrong, and I will NEVER recommend anyone to work for this company!

      Customer service

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Benefits are great but their attendance policy is very strict and hard to comply with if you have children or anything that would cause more than 3 "occurrences" in one year. This includes illness, 3 minutes tardy from the snow or you are at work and have to leave because your kid fell off the playground at school and broke his arm. Those were my 3 occurances that resulted in a write up!

      Cons

      Attendance policy, job never feels secure and in fact is not. If they want you gone they will find a way to performance you out

      Pros

      Great benefits Decent pay Some nice coworkers Lots of openings always arising Annual bonus potential Multiple intranet sites to maneuver for info

      Cons

      Absolutely poor training for advocacy members Hidden sexist behavior toward men who challenge matriarchies The trainer deliberately uses stern, abusive treatment toward new hires and the management support her. Poor parking availability for workers at the corporate office Felt forced to accept the bad trainer's retaliatory reviews or face being terminated The HR staff did nothing effective to prevent the unprofessional behavior The OL department was completely unutilized to resolve training issues Toxic learning environment Felt forced to quit in order to apply for other internal positions due to 6-month policy

      Pros

      Great benefits, good people. Lots of people are willing to help you out and go above and beyond to help.

      Cons

      No real cons, standard higher up uncoordinated/politics. Communication and coordination is tricky. You will have to gather all requirements on your own. Just make sure you have a good relationship with manager and team and you will be ok.
