    Pros

    Generally smart people and many are patient access focused. Good industry reputation. Financially strong. Exposure to most of industry. Opportunity to work remotely.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Management has a passive aggressive borderline personality disorder. HR is a joke. Compensation harmonization - pretty much a middle finger to everyone. Zero growth opportunity unless you are a cultural favorite. Benefits are awful. A new slogan or pep talk every month and it is not working. Constant communication breakdown. IT understaffed, under budgeted and under prioritized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Been there, done that and even when heard they are not listening. Style over substance.

    Pros

    I had a great boss who knew what she was going and didnt micromanage. The peers were good, and I was able to work from home so had a lot of flexibility

    Cons

    Senior Management had no idea what they were doing. The company sold its customers to a competitor and sold out all of its employees

    Pros

    You a part of a big team so things are flexible. Great benefits - you accrue 20 days of PTO per year in your first year. Fairly easy to move up in the company.

    High turnover. You lose some of your hourly pay if you switch to an earlier shift after you've been working a few months.

    Great Benefits. Poor Work/Life Balance on Second Shift

    Former Employee - Warehouse Associate
    Former Employee - Warehouse Associate

    Pros

    Great health insurance & overall benefits package

    Cons

    Nature of second shift here is that you work until all orders are filled. There were times when that meant an extra four hours tacked on to the end of your shift. We had very hard workers and ran very lean. I get it-- That's what makes this division more profitable. But there comes a point when morale is so low due to poor work/life balance (how do you plan your personal life when you don't know if you will be able to get enough sleep to function the next day in your role as parent, spouse, partner, caretaker, etc?) that management needs to step up and not just give lip-service to getting you more help, but actually do so. Don't get me wrong-- The overtime money was great, but often not worth what I gave up in my home/personal life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think more creatively on how to make second shift hours a bit more predictable for your employees, and not perpetuate the "This is how it's always been on second shift" attitude.
