Career Development

You cannot develop your career here unless you know somebody that's already in a higher position than you. It is recommended that you network your way through the company. It is not big knowledgeable on what you know per your position. You can know your role front to back side to side but you will not advance.

Suggestions for improvement

  • There needs to be more of a work-life balance they have a point system that is unfair if you're sick you're sick. The points stay on your file for one year from the date that you acquired . This causes the employee to them feel like they are walking on eggshells to keep their job. They need to revamp the attendance system along with the disciplinary system for the agents in customer service

What I like about the company

I like that they offer 401K matching. That's it

What I dislike about the company

I dislike how they pick and choose who will advance. I also dislike how the managers supervisors don't do everything necessary to help you in your career path to move forward in the company
