Marketing (Former Employee), Dallas,tx – June 29, 2013
Cons: everything else
I made the wrong decision accepting a position with this company. Accepting a position I had reservations about was my mistake. I accepted because the salary was much higher than I have ever been paid. In fact, they offered higher than I asked for and I got caught up in that.
The position was not what I had expected. Day in and day out I did nothing – more... but extremely manual entries. I did not learn new and enriching things.
The environment is hostile. Everyone is in a constant state of stress and everyone is very unhappy. You can only hear senior management refer to other employees as "idiots" or "incompetent" so many times before you just have to leave. These negative inferences do not promote growth or learning.
There is so much (manual and wasted) work to do that you often work in the evenings when you get home and on the weekends. This is a regular occurrence. The issue is not working extra, but working extra toward something that could be so much less time consuming, but the company refuses to invest in efficient business intelligence.
The turnover rate here is like nothing I have ever seen. New faces pop up weekly and just as quickly do they disappear. I should have seen a red flag when the HR coordinator asked me to start on an orientation day, something they conduct every two weeks. For a company to house two floors of an entire building and have to do orientations for new hires every two weeks (orientations contain 5-10 people) you should know there is an issue with attrition rate.
In my current position I have learned to think on my feet, react quickly and adapt fast. I enjoy the flexibility of my scheudle and meeting new challenges everyday. The fast past work day does not bother me as it presents me new ways for me to learn and be creative in solutions.

Pros: birthday cakes once a month for birthdays. they have a really good medical insurance carrier.
Cons: pressure of numbers and statistics
I am a recruiter of graduate online students. I must say that although I have a background in music (Associates in Arts) and a Bachelors in Criminal Justice, I truly enjoy closing a sale. My manager is truly reasonable and seemingly sincere. I really like my co-workers because of their honesty and humility. The most enjoyable part is being part of my – more... team - it is like a work-family that I treat with care. – less
