Marketing Specialist (Former Employee), Tampa, FL – July 21, 2015
Cons: Benefits, Poor Management, Parking
Underpaying employees and cutting corners have always been my M.O. but I have much to learn from this company. Every department complains that they are compensated well below the industry average and that their technology is TERRIBLE. The computers at the tiny cubicles are a day away from going blue screen of death on their user as their processors whine. I've seen whole days of productivity wasted – more... as computers lock up or completely crash and no one is able to fix or replace it.
Almost as bad as the technology is the quality of managers - notice I said manager not leaders. These people are so selfish and childish caring more about the size of their office and parking spots than their teams. They'd rather spend funds renovating offices to make them bigger and putting in additional reserved spots than giving raises to hard working employees.
Its almost a 50/50 split between reserved spots and free spots. Its a bigger violation to park in one of those spots than to miss a deadline. Priorities are so crazy here. – less
Bisk AKA University Alliance is Not a Desirable Place to Work
Media Buyer (Former Employee), Tampa, FL – July 20, 2015
Pros: Occasional lunches, powder creamer, coffee
Cons: No job security, pay below industry averages, negative culture, interdepartmental blame game, management who cannot lead, parking issues, low morale
The culture at Bisk is disappointing and it's well known that employees are unappreciated and disposable. Employees are fired for "performance" with no prior performance write ups. Managers all have their own political agenda and work against each other. Management is often poor leaders and never given the proper training or industry knowledge to manage teams. Management lacks diversity. There were – more... many occasions where actions of leadership shocked and appalled me.
Employees at Bisk are treated poorly and underpaid, so morale is a big issue. Departments constantly work against each other, create roadblocks and avoid blame. Performance metrics and KPIs are contradictory. No parking - be prepared to take a bus to your car. Overall, Bisk AKA University Alliance is not a desirable place to work. – less
