Great environment. AWFUL HR & PAY POLICIES.
Pros: friendly/relaxed environment, work/life balance, job security, very inclusive & cheap medical
Cons: very low compensation, questionable pay scales, hr makes & break rules as they please
I love working for TracFone. The environment is friendly and relaxed, there is great/work life balance, and they don't overhire so there's great job security.
BUT, let's talk about their absolutely awful Human Reources. They HUGELY underpay and don't let you negotiate salary AT ALL if it's an internal hire. Someone coming in off the street with no experience in the company has a better shot than you do. They won't even entertain a counteroffer, which is ridiculous considering that the MAJORITY of employees are getting payed below market for their positions. They are *notorious* for giving you the lowest offer possible.
MOREOVER, THEY CAP ANY PROMOTION AT 10%--no matter if only giving you 10% more is *thousands* below market for your new position. Let me paint a picture for you:
Let's say you're a call center employee here, making $17K while in college. You finally graduate with a degree in computer science and get hired internally as a junior java developer. Market says that's a $45K position (at the bottom of the scale). Now, TracFone will only give you a 10% raise. Which means they want you to a $45K job for $18K. Messed up, right?
While there is room for growth in titles, there is no room for growth financially. So, many employees get a few years of experience on their resumes and then leave.
