    A good place

    Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsPeople were professional, fun, friendly, collaborative for the most part. Like any place, you're gonna have politics and a couple of bad apples. My job was to bridge IT and the businesses and that for the most part was working - people were responsive to the mission

    ConsPolitics can get in the way of the actual job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTurf wars impact morale and execution. What do you do to discourage or discipline such unproductive behaviors....

    Don't Work For This Company Unless You WaNT fAILURE...

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Boise, ID (US)

    ProsFew to none.... tHIS COMPANY WITH dIRECtv IS NOT A GOOD eXPERIENCE....

    ConsAs reference to their DirecTV account, the initial training is adequate. But then they dump immediately into what they call "nesting", which is live calls with what is very minimal, and inadequate support. If you fail to meet their AHT (Average Handle Times). you are let go. I do not recommend this company under any circumstances...

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemove your "nesting", and build a side-by_side program with an experienced agent. This will increase your new agent retention by an amazing amount...

    Fear of Exceptionalism

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsBenefits are above industry standards, discretionary bonuses, decent vacation, unlimited sick.

    ConsMicro-Management style, individualism not collaborative, culture of fear and intimidation, lack of resources, no upper mobility. rigid set of standards, refusal to consider different point of view, low employee moral, toxic culture, high turnover, inept people in management positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide your upper level management (EVP and Directors) with sensitivity training, management training should be given to those individuals who come into positions without the required supervisory skill set. High turnover should be a red flag and corrective action should be taken. Encourage an open door policy and feedback. Encourage innovation, thinking outside the box and hold everyone accountable for their actions including inept EVP and Directors.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
