    Great communication from the HR team. They informed me of the steps I would go through when going through the interview process. Each level of interviews the management team was very professional and had great questions.

    Cons

    none that I can think of

    none, every step was great.

    I have been working at Freeman full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice people. Corporate office is nice, but the building is in a not-so-nice area of Dallas.

    Cons

    We are running out of room. Leadership, especially in HR, is more interested in pushing their agenda than listening to the workers affected by their decisions. Employees are sitting on top of each other and squeezed into cracker box cubicles, yet expected to still "exceed expectations" and provide "excellent customer service." Employees are expected to do more with less.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your loyal employees who tell you the proposed changes will not work. Don't punish loyalty by making the work environment unenjoyable. We know we are out of space so stop hiring more employees. Give existing employees more work. Consider allowing more work-from-home opportunities.

    Pros

    Work, if you are friends with the General Foreman

    Cons

    The Detroit office will always be the office that refused to work me when my wife had stage 3 Cancer and i almost lost my house due to crazy co pays for experimental treatments, i am sure the Detroit management found that quite humorous

    Advice to Management

    Would love to work for your company in other markets where you don't have to do favors to work
