Global Helpdesk (Former Employee) –  Santa Rosa City21 August 2019
There are good opportunities to advance your a career. Management is very supportive of your ideas and suggestions. Telecommuting is permitted, flexible schedule. The company offers good benefits, and also provide additional training to continue learning new skills. You get to work with some great people from all over the world. But there is a lot of work, and not enough resources. Long hours of work is required to meet the project deadlines.
Pros
incentives
Cons
overtime

Just horrible. I was he liaison to the Philippines customer service team.
CSR Manager (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CA18 May 2019
I was the liaison to the Philippines customer service team. Very hard to understand. Customers are not valued and it’s simply just a numbers game. Putting out many fires a day with people screaming and yelling at me is not the way I want to make a living. If they were a solid company that really cared about serving the needs of the people we sell our products to, we would be a multibillion dollar company. However when your entire business model is to promise customers one thing and then not meet or exceed their expectations, it’s just a scam at that point.
Pros
Paycheck
Cons
Management does not care.

Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Richmond, CA16 October 2018
Great company but needs to focus on management skills and need to promote people on time. Compensation is less compared to the amount of work involved.
