Unfriendly Environment
Data entry specialist, accurately entering data (Current Employee) –  Batesville, INApril 23, 2019
I could work a twelve hour day and no one in my area would even say hello. There is a lot of tension and and negative emotions, you work on teams but everyone on them is working against each other. I would never recommend anyone to work here. The benefits are great but the stress that I brought home to my personal life did not even out in the end.
Pros
Great Benefits
Cons
No lunch, No breaks, mean people, very unfriendly

Bad Experience
Life Escalation Specialist (Former Employee) –  Des Moines, IAApril 1, 2019
Training program started well but then came to a complete halt due to another large group of trainees coming in. Expectations were not set and contract was extended one day and ended the next day, literally.

Flexible Work Environment and Good Pay

Could have been better

Should have given more field related task to employee so that person could develop more skills along the way. Product Support jobs - wave 1 is too redundant and boring
Pros
Free lunches every Tuesday - not always, good overtime pay
Cons
no flexibility for contract hours, have to be physically in the office due to VDI

Excellent external sales team, negative internal morale
Sales Operations (Former Employee) –  Des Moines, IAFebruary 12, 2019
Top notch external sales team with highly skilled executive sales manangement. Internal sales team need more attention and management.

Internal employee morale is very negative, employees have been negatively impacted by conversion. Management has tried to improve this, but there needs to be more visibility to senior management. The company was build on an open door policy with strong executive leadership. A lot of these leaders have since departed.

Poor group of leadership
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Des Moines, IADecember 8, 2018
Do not apply for this company if you are looking for a good productive culture where you are able to grow both personally and professionally. If you prefer to half-butt your job and not advance or grow others around you, then you are a perfect fit.

Research Analyst (Former Employee) –  Des Moines, IASeptember 22, 2018
Working there is the epitome of mediocrity. Manager's are unwilling to forego unnecessary measures in repetition, and do not enjoy any feedback whatsoever.

Fun place to work
Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  East Hampton, CTMarch 20, 2018
Most people are easy to work with, sometimes you find a few that are not easy to work with or for. The best part of the day is when no one else is working and you can get your work done.
Pros
Work from home
Cons
Work with people that have a bad case of CRS.

Fast Growing Company with Terrific Benefits
Training and Education Consultant Analyst (Current Employee) –  Batesville, INFebruary 9, 2018
I have learned much and continue to learn in my position. The benefits are exemplary. There are many opportunities to move and grow within the company. Most of the management are great leaders and coaches who really care about their reports. The reasons I would leave would be to move closer to my family and a bad manager who was not a good coach and didn’t help me learn and grow.
Pros
Benefits, growth potential
Cons
Break-neck fast paced

Flexible work schedule and laid back atmosphere
Accounts Payable Analyst (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INDecember 2, 2017
One of the nicest perks of this company is the flexible work schedule. As long as you get your 40 hours in each week, the time you are there is not important. If you need to leave early one day, then stay late the next.

Growing company, leadership growing pains
Marketing Director (Current Employee) –  Batesville, INAugust 16, 2017
The company offers good salary and benefits, but in my current position, senior leadership is lacking in leadership skills. The hierarchy is very vertical, with countless layers of management on top of management, which creates a lot of redundancy in the actual work being done. Managers tend to be into the details of their subordinate's jobs too much.

On the positive side, the company is trying hard to be something great. Financially, the company is solid. Hopefully the personnel issues will work out as the company's growing pains improve.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Many of the managers aren't strong leaders

Worst company ever!!
Associate (Former Employee) –  Southborough, MAJune 16, 2017
If you are looking for a company who value you as an employee, then this is not the company for you. The Human Resources department is of no use other than working on managers orders. The company has a very small size and the politics inside is complicated. There's no day without gossiping about the peers by VPs and AVPs. There are few employees who work sincerely on deals and do buy and sell at work which even the top management doesn't question on. Overall this is not a company for anyone who works sincerely.
Pros
Compensation
Cons
Human Resources, rude managers

It's decent but could be better
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Simsbury, CTMay 23, 2017
Stressful, not enough resources - poor advancement opportunities, Dress code changes don't make up for deeper issues. The work at home program is only for certain groups who's managers are less old school.
Pros
Decent comp and benefits
Cons
Some VP's and AVP's have inflated titles.

If you like being told a bunch of garbage work here
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INApril 13, 2017
The people and the culture were not good. Obviously not all, but most were untrustworthy. They would say one thing and do another.
Would never tell a friend to work there.
