    Pros

    The HR Manager is always very helpful and friendly. She works more than most employees but you never see stress or any irritation from her. The culture is very nice and respectful.

    Cons

    PTO could be a little better for new hires, communication can be improved.

    Pros

    I can't think of a single good thing to say about this place other than it's a paycheck.

    Cons

    Absentee ownership, incompetent management, no training, poor benefits, little support, expectation of employees to work holidays and unpaid overtime just to keep clients

    Advice to Management

    Resign and do something that you're qualified to do!

    Had an experience recently where my coworkers went above and beyond for me. I’m so lucky and blessed to be working with such amazing people who care about each other so much.

    Cons

    Communication between offices and senior management could use some improvement.

    Pros

    Great company, that is forward thinking, dependable, customer focused and positioned for growth. Co-workers here get along well, work together as a team to get the job done, and have the ability to expand across the USA.

    Cons

    Weeding out some of the past bad employees who wish to bad mouth this company as revenege has been challenging. We now have a very stable team that knows how to work together not point fingers when mistakes are made.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Can't think of a single positive thing to say about them

    Cons

    Indian owned so employees are treated like cattle which is the culture of that country. Churn 'em and burn 'em. Low pay, long hours and incompetent management. Haven't given the employees a raise for going on 4 years yet the owner is building a mansion in Great Falls. No 401k contribution for 4 years either. Company is not long for survival.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and let people with half a brain try to save the company

    Pros

    I found this company to be exceptionally strong in customer services, with a loyal sales teams. Good People to work with and a very competent and professional HR department.

    Cons

    This is a growing regional company that is still being run like a small mom and pop by the leadership. This style works in the rural markets but not in the highly competitive cities.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate responsibilities. You can't do it all.

    Pros

    Many wonderful employees to work with, good work life balance. Great dedicated sales team.

    Cons

    EXTREMELY poor leadership from the VP of Operations down to line management who are inexperienced and lack the knowledge in their field to effectively run an organization. Creativity and innovation are practically discouraged. Teams are overworked and under appreciated with a management, sink or swim mentality. Turnover is extremely high and employees are not valued. No training, no raises, no recognition, no performance review. If your just in it for a small paycheck this employer is okay, if you are looking for more, look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Hire experienced executive and line managers to lead the company. Invest in your people, require education and certifications for your payroll, benefits, accounting and HR departments. Value your staff, encourage innovation and creativity and listen to those with experience and expertise in their field.
