    Pros

    Great culture! Fantastic team. Flexibility.

    Cons

    In my position, no work-life balance. Resources are not appropriately allocated.

    Advice to Management

    With the understanding that cost is to be taken into consideration, resources need to be given to teams to ensure everyone enjoys work-life balance and avoid burn-out.

    I worked at Bond Brand Loyalty full-time

    Pros

    Locations was close to home. Pay was decent. Interesting object oriented systems employing leading edge technologies.

    Cons

    -given complicated systems, the "Technical Leaders" werent that tech savy and stressed out over their own work as they probably dont qualify to be in the position they are in
    -Unprofessional treatment towards developers by the senior technical team due to incompetence when developers were better at what they do compared to these "senior" tech leaders
    -False accusations made due to insecurity
    -senior tech people unwilling to teach or train once again due to insecurity as all they have is what they have as they are unable to learn
    -Toxic environment as they are not placing the right tech staff into leading positions turning development political

    Advice to Management

    Systems are complicated, so it is hard to hire people with the capacity to handle them. Once you get someone that can handle it, you have to maintain it by understanding how good technically each individual in the team is instead of assuming if the person had worked there for a long time.

    I worked at Bond Brand Loyalty full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed environment although you are still required to work. Friendly co-workers and
     some Team Leads able to help Member Advocates Customer Satisfaction.

    Cons

    Supervisors who handle the loyalty program. Trying to get accurate information where supervisors say different things.
    Supervisors not willing to speak to angry customers especially when a Member Advocate has exhausted all the options.It's like trying to twist their arm to get on the phone. Although they know is to dress nice, but they can't deliver when it comes to management skill set and development. That is disappointing .Contract work which explains why there are so many openings for Member Advocate jobs because you hire and end the contract. Playing with the number of human beings lives who come to work and are trying to make a living. Is that "Loyalty " for a Company whose part of their name is in their brand.

    Advice to Management

    It's time for all the Supervisors to sit down and have a formal meeting so information communicated to Member Advocate is clear and accurate. The last draw for me at this job was when I got several irrate customers who had not received their SCENE card for over 3 months and when they asked for a supervisor and you asked for them to come to the phone, they won't be available. Poor Supervisor support on this issue. Although the company knows is to dress nice, but when it comes to challenges over the phone they can't educate the Member Advocate how to address this properly to the customer as to why they have no SCENE card and this delay has been going on for over 4 months. The Senior Management is around and knows what's going on I am surprised they are not doing anything. Another thing stop putting people who come and work as a Member Advocate on Contract.
    Is it not all the same job that I am working for someone who is a direct hire??? And having CEO look into this let alone HR. I see
    the comments from HR how they are unhappy to hear this but if you are really unhappy to see the poor grading from previous people who worked here why haven't you investigated the situation prober

    Pros

    A company of 400 talented people who support one another in career growth and skill development. Job titles are just titles - your voice is welcomed not only by your peers and supervisors, but the VPs and the CEO. Everyday at Bond feels like you are part of something so much greater, part of something really exciting.

    Cons

    No more coffee in the cafeteria after 3 - you can bring pods for the machines but then you miss out on the thrill of paying for your coffee.
