Pros: cafeteria, game room, gym and friday social hour (free food, beer and wine). benefits and bonus were great.
Cons: long hours, work/life balance, layoffs
I thought I would always work there. But they did a massive layoff (238) in July 2012. Many great employees were let go. They had no loyalty to those people we built the company. Many of us we were let go and worked there for 15 or more years.
They had a similar layoff 4 years ago too. No one is safe. They did not even try to find positions for people – more... within the company.
My coworkers were great! They make the long hours worth it.
Because it is a seasonal company, tax seasons can be very difficult. They require long hours and weekends quite often. You are on call much of the time.
Upper management sucks. They make a lot of stupid decisions that end up costing the company money. Lower level managers are great. – less
