Featured Review

Current Employee - Customer Support Associate

I have been working at Advanced full-time for less than a year

Pros

I have been at the company for over a month, and have felt very well looked after. Advanced's ethos and culture is highly valuable and attractive. It is more than a job, but a community and I am... excited to see where my career takes me. The world is your oyster at Advanced, and the more you put in, the more you get out of it! I must also add, during the pandemic Advanced have been incredibly supportive, adaptable, and flexible with employees and this must be congratulated! I have already recommended the company to a friend.

Cons

I cannot think of anything.

Advice to Management

My manager is superb, so my advice would be to carry on the way she is.
