    Pros

    The people were great to work with and the atmosphere was enjoyable.

    Cons

    The work is always longer than 40 hours and you are expected to be available 24/7. Travel on weekends is expected. Clients are very rude to you on a daily basis and do not want you there. No sense of accomplishment.

    No real career and salary advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Work with clients to provide a more friendly environment.

    Pros

    Get paid
    Benefits
    You have a job

    Cons

    This was by far worst environment I have ever worked in. The managers don't know your job and just dictate the workload while micromanaging you. Everyone is a cousin a friend an aunt a neighbor and if you aren't related you will get treated worse than a red headed step child. Managers walk around belittling their employees while spreading rumors with their employees aka their "family members" and create an extremely hostile work environment. People don't look each other in the eye and act like this is HIgh school although the average age is close to retirement. Managers create pets and allow them to get by while doing minimal while others have to carry the weight only to get screamed at. One manager in particular stated they " would make their employee cry again" and laughed while saying it. Zero morale and culture is to lie and defame characters. do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY

    Advice to Management

    Beyond advice at this point.
