Fun, Semi-Casual Work Environment
Payroll Associate/Data Entry Specialist (Former Employee) – Herndon, VA – December 27, 2016
The office environment is very open, both socially and physically. They encourage open communication with co-workers and management to avoid potential missed opportunities as well as conflicts.
My experience with management was not the greatest. It felt to me that management had no concept of how much work could be fit into any given time frame. And, that regardless of how hard we worked, we could still only work as fast or slow as the systems we used. This caused a fair amount of friction.
Additionally, management does not plan well for training new hires. For my position, which was new to me, I was given about 5 days training to learn everything there was to know. Couple that with co-workers not having time to respond to questions and things were bound to collapse, which they did.
I will say that overall I enjoyed the environment and the people. Although there were tough times, I hold no grudge against anyone.
My advice when applying to this company: Have plenty of previous experience in the position to which you are applying.
