Pros

Great people to work with, generally open. Leadership is generally receptive, with a few exceptions. Some of the business lines are very cool to work with and have very communal/friendly cultures, with few exceptions.

Cons

Watch out for managers who can be domineering and squash true innovation. A lot of them have been around for so long that they think they know everything in the best way it can be done - so much so that they will obliterate steps in a new and excitingly efficient direction simply because they think how it has always been done is the right way and only way.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Watch who you hire into leadership. They steer the ship of the sub-culture of any group they lead, and so if care is not exercised, they can create a culture where it is not only difficult to succeed, it is impossible to innovate or improve.

    Pros

    The pay is above average for my area. The PTO is comparable to the area. The people you work with are for the most part great people

    Cons

    The compliance department is OUT OF CONTROL! Everyday changes are made to the procedures. Calls are transferred constantly instead of actually resolving issues. When you try to authenticate a customer, the quality assurance division is always trying find an issue and are not consistent in the manner in which they grade a call. The incentive program is set so high that very few will EVER make incentive. There are so many disclosures that have to be read Verbatim and are set by a compliance department that obviously has NEVER had to take a call in life. Constant micromanaging. Overwhelming reports that somehow you are to notice everyday, but don't put yourself in after call, not ready, or log out as all those times are monitored and you could fail adherence. Paid Time Off is allowed, but always placed in status of "waitlisted" so you cannot make proper plans and if you just do and call out sick it is an occurrence and goes against your work record up to dismissal. Recently during an ice storm in South Dakota we had over four inches of rain and ice that came down and then was topped off with 5 inches of snow. The call centers DID NOT CLOSE although most streets were blocked with fallen trees and electricity out in over 15000 homes and businesses in the area. Instead the management closed 2 hours early which then caused those receiving night differential to lose it for the two days. So it cost me $2 more an hour to have that paid time off that the company mandated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does not stand up for any rights of the employees or back them up with their concerns. Great 'spiffs" are in play all the time, but what good are these special bonuses if the overall attitude is horrible. Less meetings for them should be in order as your manager will never have the opportunity to talk with you, address concerns, give business advice or take care of general business practices.
