    Pros

    Good company mission, been around for awhile.

    Cons

    Placed a lot employee's on furlough due to COVID-19 and hired a top level executive, CMO. Doesn't send the best message during a tough time. Lack of innovation, very old school culture. Low paying sales and collections roles that are heavily incentivsed with high turnover.

    Unfortunately, we had to furlough some of our team members just like many other companies. We look forward to the day we can bring back our furloughed Associates. The Chief Marketing Officer is a critical role and was filled prior to the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We value this forum as a source of anonymous feedback because we can learn and improve based on what people share. We are committed to creating a comfortable and collaborative environment to all our employees, so we are disappointed to hear about your experience. We have a team that continually reviews our entire benefits package so we can offer our employees the best. This year, we added additional benefits based on employee feedback and always look at ways to improve the benefits, such as PTO, offered to our employees. Employees receive 6 paid holidays and 11 PTO days in their first year of employment. In their second year of employment, employees receive 16 PTO days along with the 6 paid holidays.
