VICE PRESIDENT, Finance (Former Employee) –  Purchase, NYDecember 21, 2015
They work outrageous hours and think they own you. Very little opportunity for advancement unless you are younger than 25. They value degrees, not people - talent is not rewarded.

Sr. Administrative Assistant
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Purchase, NYOctober 13, 2015
To be successful in this role, one must enjoy working with others in a team setting as well as with multiple levels of management. It is essential to be organized, friendly with customer account personnel and possess the ability to multi-task and negotiate deadlines for various projects.

It is important to work alongside executives communicating well in order to understand priorities and deadlines, upcoming projects and customer meetings.

The most difficult part after seven years was to incorporate new learnings into an already full and packed business day. There are only so many hours in a day! All in all, it was a very enjoyable experience which I will always cherish as there is much that I learned and will take with me throughout my career.
Pros
Annual Bonus
Cons
Opportunities for advancement and promotion.

Productive and busy workplace but high stress.
CEO-Financial Banking Liaison-Office Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 27, 2015
I was in a high stress position over 7-10 employees and ran the company as the owner was incapacitated.
I brought monthly residuals up from $5000.00 a month when I started to $45000.00 a month in less than 2 years.
The hardest part was the workload as I did all HR, AR, AP, Payroll and reporting. All customer service as well. In the end was doing technical repairs on credit cad terminals and programming, delivering as well as working all events alone. Some with as many as 17 terminals per event. The events were a lot of work but also great fun.
Pros
The freedom of working in office or from home.
Cons
No Retirement and minimal healthcare

assist in tracking orders and balances on accts (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas,NVJune 11, 2015
Answer calls for loyalty and rewards. A lot of the information was delayed between MasterCard and the banks were always delayed. Management was a little shady their was definitely favoritism shown through out this campaign at Telus. The hardest part was when a customer didn't receive their item and have to deal directly with the bank Key Bank was the hardest Bank to deal with and Wells Fargo.
Pros
great company parties great company (Telus) overall
Cons
pay rate low
