    Pros

    Good pay
    good hours
    great lifestyle
    Amazing CEO

    Cons

    Management is horrendous
    treat you like a robot
    they do not care about you and look down on you

    Advice to Management

    learn to treat people with respect.
    one thing i heard all the time is how everyone started from the ground up, but zero respect for anyone lower then them.
    they speak of the ability to move into better positions but play favorites and only give better positions to people with worse metrics to keep good agents on phones.
