It was a fair place to work at
Project Coordinator (Former Employee), Lincoln, NEMay 4, 2015
Pros: Good insurance
Cons: To many childish rules, reminded me of grade school.
It was a fair place to work at. But the company was bought out by a large Software group. The raises came very few unless you were hired for a new position. The management ran the group as if we were grade school students.

Great job other than compensation
Recruiter (Current Employee), Frisco, TexasJanuary 15, 2015
Pros: work life balance, great teams, fast paced.
Cons: salary and advancement opportunities.
There is work life balance in the remote positions. They do make sure teams are a good fit. Strong relationships built. In office politics can make advancement difficult if you are not in the click. Hard work, longevity, and dedication does not pay off financially and advancement for the whole is very difficult.

Laid Back Atmosphere
Helpdesk Team Lead (Current Employee), Lincoln, NEApril 30, 2014
Pros: bonuses
Cons: nothing
A typical 8 hour day at work usually flies by. I am constantly taking calls at my desk to assist callers with application issues, password resets, etc. I am a team lead so I assist with the escalated cases and send those to the appropriate parties. It is a call center atmosphere and every one that works here is amazing.

Temps in a box
Recruiter/Interview Specialist (Current Employee), Frisco, TXMarch 4, 2014
Pros: pay is decent for the work. telecommute option if you can get them to approve it.
There was just a layoff where multiple permanent staff were lost very suddenly, leaving temps and contractors to fill the space. Clearly a quick money fix, and not an incentive for working harder.

Not a well-run company, and advancement does not seem to be based on performance or skill. Recently bought by IBM, whose help desk is atrocious.

long hours, blame game
Global Project Manager (Former Employee), Lincoln, NENovember 24, 2013
Pros: coworkers
Cons: lots, read review
I enjoyed my coworkers. Management is quick to throw you under the bus if something goes badly on a project. Lots of late nights. Issue on a project seems to follow you for life, unless you hang out with managers outside of work. Heard about the same issue on a project for 3 straight yearly reviews. Always an excuse for no raises or bonuses...often something that was years ago or out of your control. If you aren't partying outside of work with managers or coworkers you will not moce up in organization. I was almost forced to go on a business trip when my first child was due, was told "it only takes an hour to fly back home", luckily an individual in upper management stopped that by saying "if his wife goes into labor he'll never forgive us and might quit", in essence it was always about them. Was told it was "bad timing" when I needed to take time off for my uncle's funeral. No back up plan for projects/clients when you take time off or have an emergency. Vacations were a double edged sword, often working while on vacation or working 80 hours before and after.
