      Pros

      Competitive salary, benefits and decent online training.

      Cons

      Do not promote within and keep you at your current position if you are doing over the expected work while others who don't do over the expected work and have connections get promoted.

      Just don’t

      Mar 24, 2021 - Project Lead in Greensboro, NC
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You get to work from home, so I guess that’s a win but I’ve been a virtual employee for over a decade and never had my work life balance tested like this , so...

      Cons

      No tools, as in zero. Spreadsheets rule everything. Tire tracks (and a target) on your back at all times if you speak your mind and last but not least, a negative work life balance.
