Company Culture

very limited in advancement. Managers are weak when it comes to advocacy of employees and turn the other way when abusive situation occur.

Support from management

Abusive situations are discouraged from being addressed with HR. Even threat

Freedom to work independently

It is extremely regimented and structured due to the contracts that they sign for customer service levels.

Internal Communication

Being in the investment call centers, we find out about changes without any input or suggestions on our part.

Gender Equality

More women assistant managers than male managers.

Career Development

Little to no upward mobility.

Overall compensation for your work

For all the responsibility and requirements, pay is not great.

Environmental Friendliness

Poor Hvac. Everyone during the year will get sick at some point.

Company Image

Not well known.

Job Security

One mistake and your shown the door.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The company needs to take input from employees seriously and use it to make decisions. Recognizing that they hired people for the skills they have and allowing them to do their jobs in a more positive environment would be really beneficial for everyone.

What I like about the company

The working relationships between teams/employees.The company promotes from within and gives people the opportunity to advance. The benefits are good.

What I dislike about the company

The politics of upper management. I think there needs to be a more thoughtful and logical approach to decisions. Pay isn't always equivalent to job responsibilities and the cost of living.I think they should keep those things in mind along with performance when they do pay raises each year. The biggest thing that needs improvement is getting rid of the negativity there. Employees are unhappy and it is very apparent.The company sends out surveys then talks about the results but doesn't quite understand that the negativity comes from upper management treating employees like they aren't doing enough, while we work many extra hours and stress out to meet last minute requests and finish projects by the deadlines. There needs to be some genuine encouragement and gratitude for all that the employees do.
