    I have been working at Pressler & Pressler full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, friendly co-workers and makes you want to stay on top of your bills. Easy to get to work as its right off the highway.

    Cons

    Upper management sucks, no raises, hassle you about a 20 minute lunch and get on your case about why you missed 3 hours of work. The place is a joke and its no wonder more people leave than people who actually stay. Don't get the benefits because it will cost more then what you think.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and accommodate them. This company makes more then enough to help out your employees

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and co-workers are great. Other than that, not much else to say.

    Cons

    Awful. Just awful all around. I don't even know where to begin...

    Advice to Management

    You need to acknowledge hard working employees and compensate them appropriately.

    Pros

    You have your own desk and chair.

    Cons

    -Management is run by pretentious, unsophisticated and unprofessional frat boy personalities.
    -Management is often uninformed and uneducated in their field; a google and youtube search will laundry list this operation's numerous violations and complaints.
    -Nepotism and favoritism appear to determine growth potential rather than one's resume.
    -Unreasonably oppressive, strong arm tactics are often employed to collect against debtors.
    -Lunch Breaks are only 20 minutes.
    -No snacks allowed on the desk.
    -The break room is often filthy.
    -The company closely monitors everyone through use of surveillance cameras.
    -Raises are scarce, almost non-existent.
    -Benefits are excessively expensive.
    -High turnover rate.
    -As a result of the above, morale is extremely low.

    Advice to Management

    1.Purge management.
    2.Hire competent and educated professionals.

    Pros

    The schedule was very flexible, very good for students and if you are looking for part time work on the side.

    Cons

    No room for upward mobility, upper management were often disrespectful and dismissive.

    I worked at Pressler & Pressler full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility ...other than that, there are none except for some co-workers who are nice.

    Cons

    Not an employee oriented company, do not appreciate or acknowledge good workers only acknowledge when you do something wrong; big turnover constantly, professionals do not act professionally, there is yelling and at times cursing for all to hear.

    Advice to Management

    Start acknowledging good employees and good workers instead of focusing on the negative all the time. Need better training for some employees, let employees have some say in the work, give some freedom and have some trust in your employees. Just be nicer in general and care about your employees and stop showing favoritism to "older" employees.

    I worked at Pressler & Pressler full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and nice co workers. Managers were fine but can play favorites.

    Cons

    They have a TV screen monitoring all incoming calls. It beeps every few minutes and gets incessantly louder if a person is on hold to long. Then someone comes out of their office and starts yelling that no one is picking up the phone. Well, when there are 25 calls ringing and 10 people in the office at 8am, what do you expect? Then they just go back into office and close door, managers don't offer to pick up phone to help.

    Benefits are a joke. Over $400 month for 1 person. Good luck supporting a family.

    No bonus structure anymore, no incentive and minimal pay raise.

    Advice to Management

    Stop yelling at everyone and actually do something. Be accountable. Don't tell employees not to do something g (ex don't be on cell phone) and then do it yourself.

    I worked at Pressler & Pressler (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Can come in and work 8 hours a day anytime between 8 am-9 pm. Team managers are super great, its the upper management that sucks.

    Cons

    Micromanaged COMPLETELY. They record and keep track of every little single thing you do. Check how long your on calls and if its too long they clock you... no bonuses or incentives even if you're collectiong $100,000 a month for them. Everything is clocked, 20 minute lunch ONLY and if you go over the 20 minutes you are forced to stay later to make up the time. If you have to step outside for 30 seconds you have to punch out or you get in serious trouble, you even get told you can't take too long in the bathroom! No cellphones at all meaning if there is an emergency you can't even answer or check your phone or you get in trouble. No growth opportunities whatsoever, people have been collectors there for 20+ years without being placed in any higher up positions. Place is a prison, for $16 an hour you're better off working at the mall.

    Advice to Management

    To upper management: teat employees like humans not dogs. Team managers you guys are awesome.

    Pros

    Decent pay when just out of college. Flexible Schedule. Friendly Employees.

    Cons

    Cell phone restriction, 20 min lunches, expensive benefits, no opportunity to advance in the company, maybe after 10 years or so.

    Advice to Management

    Attorneys should take the time to meet most of the paralegals. They ignore them like they aren't assisting them collect for their clients. "Hi, nice to meet you!" would be fine.
