    Pros

    You will never be bored. Very good options for benefits and amenities. Once you get to know the people and find the right ones, you will find some pretty awesome, supportive people. You can depend on others to help you. This place is NOT for the lazy. You work hard and you definitely find self-worth here (if you do a good job.) If you get lucky to be on the right team, it is easy to avoid the wrong people. We are able to work from home after a certain amount of time with the company for up to two days a week. Everyone is very supportive of life events (engagements, marriages, pregnancies, etc.) No one is shy about a big "congratulations" when it is appropriate. New management is in place, they seem to be a good fit, but it is really too soon to tell.

    Cons

    There is no doubt we are underpaid for the amount of work we do and the work load that is carried. We do get overtime pay and yes, there will be nights you do overtime- some people more than others depending on their work load. However if we have "gifted time" (i.e. the company goes on an outing and they give you those hours so you don't have to make them up) you will not get the overtime you acquired that week. I have seen many posts of it feeling like high school or middle school, this is true. You have to find the right people, not all of them are about the cliches, but the cliches are definitely there. I spent the first few months feeling like an outcast. When you get on a team it gets better- most of the time. Patience and hard work. I felt like i had to earn respect. However, I eventually found people to be friends with and they are great. I still trust very, very few though with anything big. You have to be very careful who you complain to, and who may be listening. Some promotions are given out of favoritism, however, there are some that are given to those who have earned it and have worked towards said promotion. Support from your peers is not guaranteed for promotions. Jealousy is a thing and some can express it pretty maliciously. Not everyone is mean though. There are some very nice ladies who work here who are very supportive and real. Training needs a new makeover entirely. There are several who did not get sufficient training and are having to learn basics on their feet. This is being revamped at the moment.

    Pros

    Facilities, in house gym, great food, lots of glitz and glam. They do try to put on events (big and small) that include the whole companies and keep them happy that are really cool to experience.

    Cons

    I saw comment about something about you have to be a UGA grad and not a minority. It doesn't matter if you are a minority or not, or a UGA grad, if you are not one of the chosen favorites you are treated like crap. This was the worst place I have ever worked. They do not have any realistic expectations of what is possible, support is worked into the ground, the place is a revolving door. They hire, treat their employees with no dignity and like machines, they quit and then they hire more people. HR has no power of how others are treated. Operations management is more concerned of how they will turn out looking to sales management and will not go to bat for their own. If a person tries to speak too loudly about this or fix it, they end up under a magnifying glass and EVERY little thing they say or do is held against them. They do not like people out of the norm and they certainly do not like those who are outside of the mold. I have kept up with reviews and a few inside people since I left and nothing has changed...and unless something dramatic happens (unlikely) it probably never will. Also, unless you are favored, there is no chance for movement in the company. Yes, (most) of those favored absolutely work hard, but others who want to move because they want know they will have better strengths or be happier else where are kept put because they are not favored or because they are good at their current job and they can't afford to loose them in that department. There are snakes everywhere, not just in management. Yes, it does feel like high school again. Only worse.

    Pros

    People who weren't brain washed pod people or in a high school clique were decent. There's an in house cafe with Starbucks, game room and gym.

    Cons

    Hard work is often ignored if you aren't one of their chosen. Support roles are thankless and underpaid. Management style is based on the OPINIONS of account managers etc. not actual and consistent results. Management is hypocritical and uneven. Minorities in management are few and far between and those that make it are firmly in the Presidents pocket. Promotions are based on tenure and favoritism, not skill or management ability. Human Resources is not in the slightest confidential. If you have a differing opinion, even when presented in the most respectful and tactful manner you will be labeled and discarded at the first opportunity. Oh and HR will call your manager informing them of your visit, which fosters an environment of retaliation and pettiness. They will lie to you to your face and slander your reputation when you leave. People are hired based on attractiveness or whether they attended certain colleges. The specialty teams are allowed to be abusive to those in support roles as long as the team is profitable and making the company money. As much as they discuss charitable contributions, they often ignore their success is based off the work of the little people and they would not have a company if not for the hard work and dedication from those departments. Unwritten rules that those in sales roles can leave early on Friday regardless of whether all is needed for their upcoming assignment, often leaving those in support to finish up the details and stay late. No matter what happens as assignment unfolds if the person is somehow unable to work (unqualified/unresponsive/angry/arrogant candidate or lackadaisical medical staff contact or simply cancelled by the candidate) its the fault of the support team (CVO/Customer Care). Things often turn into a blame game, with the person who has worked the hardest having to defend themselves and provide documentation that they did everything they could, even when its clear their actions did not lead to the outcome. No matter what their current pitch is, the bottom line here is self serving and all about making money, no matter who is stepped on to get there. You can earn a great living here if you are willing to overlook the obvious shortcomings, fit into one of the previously mentioned categories or genuinely cutthroat.
