Pros: co-workers are like family
Cons: healtcare benefits suck, favortisim, no cultural divirisity, no minorites working there
I worked there for many years without a raise. They would say there was a pay freeze, but other co-workers were getting raises. When I tried to move to another department, I was denied the opportunity. They still use old Windows programs. I was using Windows 97 and it was 2011.
You are not able to take any time off during November- April. It's considered – more... "busy season" during those months.
You get 1 week of vacation after working there for 1 year, and you are "encouraged" to take it all at once. It is highly frowned upon if you don't
Casual Friday consist of men not wearing their ties.
You are very limited to the Holidays, there are only a total of 6 recognized Holidays. – less
The Telegram is an amazing place to work! Everyone is awesome and very helpful. I learned to build strong rapport with my clients so much they are extremely sad to see me go! I would say everything I did was enjoyable and constantly kept me on my toes. The management was "okay". One of the supervisors constantly showed favoritism to other co-workers – more... and belittled several others. It was very hard to witness this. – less
Troubled company with a declining subscription base. Employees are friendly to the public and to each other but fear economics are hurting their future. Cost controls are questionable and special-interests within the corporation are favored while salaries are not in line with industry norms. Management team, though considerate on a personal level, also – more... fear non-supportive input from the executive level and a level of self-preservation instincts are obvious. Overall, the company needs to enjoy successfully proven management and operational practices that have been known to succeed and provide positive growth. – less
