    I worked at CPA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are no pros to working here that I can think of.

    Cons

    You will work 60 plus hours a week- they don't ask you to do it, they DEMAND it
    They give you unclear instructions and expect you to read their minds
    They give you tasks and expect you to complete them in very unreasonable time frames
    EXTREME micro-managers
    You will go home every night completely stressed-out and miserable, and the pay will fall far short of making up for it.
    I once got a "talking to" for making a 5 minute emergency personal phone call, despite the fact I was putting in 60 plus hour work weeks
    Don't expect any praise from anyone for a job well done- they manage by negative reinforcement(i.e., you will only hear from them when you make a mistake, or they have some other reason to verbally attack you)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Based upon the upper management that was there when I was- the best advice I could give to the CEO- CLEAN HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!

    Not bad considering

    I worked at CPA as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people, generous staff bonus', positive working environment. There are a great number of team building exercises that staff attend.

    Cons

    There is a tendency for staff to work longer hours than is really necessary. With better management and clearer delegated roles, this could be cleared up.

  7.  

    Not too bad, typical collections

    Former Employee - Collections in Dallas, TX (US)

    I worked at CPA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Management was easy to get along with. They would give out snacks on Friday which was a good perk in my opinion.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of room to move up and the pay was less than 30k which I feel needed to improve. The medical benefits were pretty expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay to keep employees around and larger bonuses for collectors doing well.
