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 – more... 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. – less

Most fun job I've had
Data Image Processor (Former Employee), Lincoln, NESeptember 14, 2013
I loved my 2yrs working at Blockbuster from the standpoint that I loved my regular customers and watching movies. It was by far the least stressful, most fun job I've had....however that doesn't pay the bills.

Compensation was low and corporate management was absolutely 100% clueless as to how to save the company. Combine that with the bankruptcies – more... and store closings, I had no feeling of job security and had to move on. – less

Very fair workplace. Nice atmosphere.
Tech Support Agent (Current Employee), Lincoln, NEJune 17, 2013
You work on phones. Other than some inflexibility on break time, a very clear, simple enough job. The hardest part of the job is when you run up against a software problem you have no control over. This is where the job becomes primarily about customer service. I am a little uncomfortable with what appears to be some nepotism at work, but people who – more... can't do the work are removed regardless of who they know. That said, people with connections, or people that are clearly attractive have been promoted in front of other more senior/better qualified employees (not me, as I've been with the company less than a year). But such is life, generally it's a nice place to work. People are friendly and the managers are approachable. Pay isn't outstanding, but in the Midwest it's plenty if you're single. – less
