    I have been working at National Bankruptcy Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work is mostly done independently. Can have headphones in if you want.

    Cons

    Management constantly breathes down your neck for results. It doesn't matter how much production was done in the preceding days, if you fall even a little behind, you hear about it. E-mail communication from management could get a bit condescending.

    Pros

    They are laid back, other associates are great to work with, people working there are friendly for the most part

    Cons

    They do not really have a training to go through, and when it comes to a promotion, lol, keep dreaming!

    I worked at National Bankruptcy Services full-time

    Pros

    The staff was great, but upper management caused the morale for the employees to plumet

    Cons

    The training is horrible. Supervisors are treated more like team leads

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those that you have hired as supervisors to manage your teams. Provide adequate training for everyone who is employed. The CEO could also use some training.

    Pros

    That I final got wise and walked out and turned in my badge. Rather than make you feel valued, they go out of their way to single people out and make feel like a nobody.

    Cons

    Worked at the West Des Moines location and this is the worst job I have ever had. The training is terrible!! If you are willing to sit during training period and listen to the trainer tell stories about their personal life most of the day but be expected to know what the hell you are doing when u hit the floor, this is the right job for you. This place discourage interaction with peers and you get reprimanded if you seek help from your peers. Trainers are overworked and stretched thin, mind you. I couldn't get out of there fast enough. Very hostile work environment and favoritism is very common.
    PLEASE, don't waste your time!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic and put yourself in these people's shoes. Shame on you!! Be kind and considerate to your employees and you will get good productivity out of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Pros

    You are not micro-managed. Smaller corporate environment. Workload is heavy perhaps giving some longevity.

    Cons

    I was at the West Des Moines, IA NBS location.
    Although the training staff / management is spread extremely thin based off of span of control, the new hires coming in off the streets are not getting the training needed to do their job in an accurate and timely manner. They provide a visual example on overhead projection system of the audit process. They break the audit into different sections. One example is provided, and then trainees are sent to their desk to do on their own. The trainers or managers never come around to see if their are questions, and if you go to them to ask, you're lucky if they get back to you before the end of the day. Zero flexibility, and unfriendly environment. Worst place I have ever been employed.

    Advice to Management

    Hire trainers. Let the managers manage. Although they should be giving their staff feedback and coaching them, they are not trainers. Transition client mainframe systems into all encompassing software that can write to the various mainframes.

    Pros

    You get paid for your work every 2 weeks.

    Cons

    hostile work environment
    no regard for employees

    Advice to Management

    If you truly care about prospering as a company, you need to figure out a way to treat your employees better in order to retain them. Otherwise, as you are seeing already, experienced employees, who actually do a good job, are leaving. In the end you are left with employees who do not contribute positively to the work environment.
    I would get rid of all mid level managers whose departments you are seeing good, productive people leave from.

    Pros

    Great environment, wonderful benefits, cool place to be if you don't mind working in a corporate environment.

    Cons

    Not too fond of people listening to music on their phones or eating lunch at their desks.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up the reins a bit, let people listen to music and you'll probably get more efficient workers.
