    Pros

    Good People, Good co-workers

    Hidden Agenda, Promise to move up quickly but just words

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect, not children. Stop having co-workers spying on each other.

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Hotwire Communications full-time

      Pros

      A pay check on a bi weekly basis

      Cons

      Terrible! Management really needs a management course or two. The lack of management here at this company you would not believe. The moral is extremely low. Great employees are highly unappreciated. Promises of raises do not happen. You can be at the top of the rankings for months on end while others fall below the average and still you will not be rewarded. It is a shame that with all of these bad reviews (all of which...

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your employees complaints and suggestions. Good people will not continue to stick around because other companies are willing to pick up these good people and treat them with respect and better pay.

      Pros

      It pays some of your bills

      Cons

      Owners are not accountable, they are never around. VPs and senior managers practice rampant nepotism and favoritism. There are no evaluations so you never know how well you are performing in any tasks given. Its the complete worst. Don't work here unless desperate.

      Advice to Management

      Get a grip, you are loosing diligent and dedicated employers because of terrible management.

      Pros

      The company is a great company to work for. Corporate upper leadership seems like they really care about their employees. The owner does a lot of nice things for her employees. We’ve had Health Awareness Checks, She shows us she appreciates us with Employee Appreciation Days where she will buy her employees, lunch, basketball tickets, and airline tickets to Florida to attend the 5K run. Overall Hotwire Communications...

      Cons

      Now here is where the problems lies. The manager in Florida: awesome The manager in Philadelphia: awesome But that manager that we have here in Georgia: Recipe for Disaster. She doesn’t even deserve to have the title as manager. She is lazy, she doesn’t know ANYTHING, she is rude, arrogant, She has a very smart mouth. When I tell you this woman is lazy, she is LAZY. All she does is sits in her office and watch TV...

      Advice to Management

      My advice to the great corporate staff that we have would be Is to bring another manager into the office that cares about the company and its brand. This manager will cause the company a lawsuit one day because she refuses to follow the company laws and mission statement. You cannot give certain people power and this is one of those people. She abuses it. working in Georgia feels like being in jail and prison at the...

        NO PROS to talk about, it's not a good place to work. Run, don't let them fool you. Everything you read on here is FACTS!

        Cons

        BE AWARE ALL THE COMMENTS ON GLASSDOOR ARE TRUE! DONT LET THEM LIE TO YOU!! No raises, no good benefits, no growing or promoting, too much disorganization in all areas and departments, owners don't care about its employees and what happens. The owners and Execs in charge treat everyone like a machine and you don't get NO pay increases, NO benefits, NO perks, NO incentives. You can see by how many people leave the company....

        Advice to Management

        Owners you need to look at what you doing at the top you got people in charge some of these VPs you got don't care about your company, they are scamming you and treating your employees unfair. Discrimination, favoritism, bullying, harassing places to work, it is REAL it happens EVERY DAY!
