    Pros

    I was a telecommuter for most of my time. The benefits were great and I loved the people.

    Cons

    Telecommuters were called into offices. Business comes and goes so the people managing that business may do the same.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees! Acknowledge their contributions.

    Pros

    Great company, people want to perform and do well for their direct reports. Team synergy is fantastic. Great flexibility when it comes to being able to telecommute

    Cons

    Client managed and senior management did not make the right business decisions when it came to who need to be kept when re-alignment was done. disappointed as it was just a friends thing and not who was doing the best. Sad

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to ensure senior leadership is making decisions based on the business not on who they like.

    Former Employee - Senior Systems Analyst in Memphis, TN (US)

    Pros

    Pay is competitive and benefits are great but downgraded. Work load is depending on what account you work with, sometime great while sometime hectic. Some senior management are decent while some act hyper most of the time. Work environment is safe and security guards on duty all the time.

    Cons

    Unless you just want paycheck then this location is worse for you. There are less chance for an advancement. Be ready to work under one who barely speaks english who's educational credential never been verified. This place hardly work as a team and most of the times it's all about "I" instead "us" crazy but true. Here are the breakdowns depending on what you're interested in. Analyst: Work get done but unexpected demands that must get meet, it's harsh demand most of the time with short timeline. Program manager: Mostly ego between each other and group building to play politics. Testing: Most won't last long here because this plant has awkward understanding about testing, also extreme pressure from customers. Quality: Your name will be on paper but you will be doing nothing or considered for nothing. Process: All day long every day play with pipes and build benches, everything else is beyond their scope of work or simply waste of paid time if they try to do anything. IT: Great place to learn then must get out. Facility: random changes that you will scratch your bald head mode than you actually work here. Lead: Listen to him listen to her listen to all, no ideas what you will do here. Supervisor: Make a point and stand on your legs or else someone else will run the show, very strange. Manager: Same as a supervisor and ready to stay under a gun, you will hardly make any good decisions. Line people: Lucky to have regular hours, sometime too many sometime less. It's a cut dog eat dob business. They try many ideas and talent but nothing works at sometime. If you're talented then stay away. Many talented works here however find themselves trapped and looking for exit. Nothing negative these are all realities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing....may be one. Do not give power to uneducated barely english speaking idiots. Hire some locals instead of wasting time of talent hire people. This place is what it should deserve.

    Pros

    I love what I do it's very challenging.

    Cons

    The facility I work at, is very unfair in, promotions, rasies, as well as advancement. Along with there's no accountability for when people mess up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is none. Nobody cares enough to do anything. So why bother
