    Pros

    Regional office is a great group of folks. Flexibility for hours of start and stop times. Recently determined to provide laptops to employees that travel

    Cons

    Systems are out dated and do not talk to each other. Recent issue of laptops is years too late. Work from home is not wide spread and I'd difficult for working parents. Not allot of opportunity for job change within the company outside of home office in Philadelphia

    Pros

    Steady paycheck and great coffee machine

    Cons

    No formal training for presale specialist, you have to learn from a coworker who doesn't always know what they talking about or do things wrong. Pre-sale specialist are overloaded with work. There is no thanks or appreciation for the support team. Its all about sales reps who get to do whatever they want, get free lunches and perks and get all the recognition but do very little of the work. My sales manager created a terrible office environment was very disrespectful and misogynistic but when we complained to the support manager and corporate office nothing was done.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees correctly, listen to employees, show more appreciation and stop being cheap
