    Pros

    The pros were its a great working environment, nice people everyone is very approachable as well as helpful. Room For advancement

    Cons

    cons would be, as expected very challenging dealing with irate customers at times, your shift depends on your productivity within the company, so theres a chance you could have a later shift depending on how your working habits are.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were good. and that's pretty much the only good thing i can say.

    Cons

    Because a majority of my coworker were in another state i ended up feeling completely isolated. There's no real training so even months in to this job there were basic things I didn't know about. It seems like this company has no idea what the concept of "work life balance" is.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to put someone in a management position please give them a little training. My last few months were miserable because my new manager had no idea what he was doing.

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay.

    Cons

    Non-recognition of employee accomplishments. Raises were based on how popular you were with your manager, not on what you had accomplished during the year.

    Worked with un-qualified employees.

    Advancement and promotions in the oompany are virtually nonexistent.

  11. Company culture not very dynamic- resembles old pre-divestiture mentality

    Pros

    Good benefits, vacation & sick day policy generous

    Cons

    No advancement, constant layoffs, employees and management have been there so long without challenges that they act in an "institutionalized" manner

    Advice to Management

    Understand you have to make profit, however, should show some respect to employees and care about growth and contribution to company.
