    Pros

    Some really good people work there with great dedication.

    Cons

    Serious integrity issues, middle management deceptive about employee benefits, job descriptions, and responsibilities. Company deceives not only employees, upper management, customers, and sister company. Pure “sweat shop” mentality and policies. Location hires “temporary” employees that are promised to be made permanent with benefits, nothing but simple deception. Frightening that this is the company responsible for making your credit cards.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house of management at Chantilly location.

    Pros

    There are a low level of aspiration so you can work without too much pressure. So if you are interested in a place to work where you can relax this is the place to go.

    Cons

    No top management attention. Very low level of delegation of responsibilities. Need to focus on people instead of processes and procedures.
