    Pros

    Pay and benefits. They typically pay above scale and provide benefits from the time you become a full time employee.

    Cons

    Management, on several occasions missed their mark on several key initiatives in the center. Specifically they never had a clue what was happening on the floor in regards to employee satisfaction and were never involved in developing employees to rank up.

    "Manage up or out" was stated on several occasions and this approach is what developed a culture of fear in the call center. High turnover is never a positive motivating factor and management was quick to let go of the people who stood against that ideal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would share advice but management seems to agree with Hastings' approach of shooting from the hip and not listening to his trusted advisors.

    Pros

    Colleagues are fantastic. People very smart and culture is collaborative. Work on very interesting projects and company moves fast - hard to get used to at first

    Cons

    Experience at the company highly depends on your specific manager and team and getting good feedback. Career development is sorely lacking except for those at the junior level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better processes / standards for promotion and greater opportunities for career development.
