Chasing people down to do their jobs
Manager (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 9, 2018
There are too many departments performing for their own benefit. It makes it difficult to work with other teams and actually accomplish something, then they wonder why nothing gets done.

Management is awful
Accounts Receivable Analyst (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 9, 2018
It is petty and so very stressful and management is inexperienced and doesn't speak or interact with her team but has relationships with other departments and degrades members of her own team. She pits one team member against another. Just stressful.
Pros
VP is very nice
Cons
Management is awful

Company has incompetent managers
Lead Oracle Applications DBA/Core Oracle DBA (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GANovember 30, 2017
Most of the time you are being reactive instead of proactive. There is no priority on DBA projects. All project work for DBA's are considered tasks instead of projects.

Ok job if you work in a different position besides Customer Care
Customer Advocate (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJune 29, 2017
Take caution with this position. If you have to work in the customer experience department run the other way. Its a toxic environment where the manager doesn't really mange but instead has a team lead who lacks proper leadership handle and attempt to lead the team.
Pros
Free insurance, Fun Fridays
Cons
Mirco Management, Mangers lack leadership skills to lead a team

Toxic Culture Overall
IT Manager (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAApril 27, 2017
Very weak and toxic senior leadership which promotes politics. If you want to learn and grow this is not the place for you. Most of the work is done by consultants or contractors.

Typical Call-Center Environment
Customer Service/Case Management Specialist (Former Employee) –  Miramar, FLMarch 4, 2015
IRT was the call center where Purchasing Powers customer service dept. was located in.... The management team could use some proper training and learn better developmental skills on team building. Also, quality assurance was not very helpful on improving customer service, we would only get assessed on a basic level with no extra training available. Program training was never complete, it was typical for a new employee to come on the floor without fully understanding the programs we used for daily calls/tasks. The best part was when we were working in the newer building of IRT, where IRT's direct management team would include us in fun activities and let us use their recreational area that included a comfy couch for break time naps and tv/video games for entertainment purposes. And I finally had a great work schedule after a year of being there.
Pros
Recreational Area, free mattress prize, good hours
Cons
bad management team, no employee consideration, lack of training, "revolving door" attitude
