It's a pretty chill environment, i enjoyed working here. People are friendly and work oriented. A typical day includes coming to work and staying till your work is done. Management is pretty lax about when you come in, as long as you get your work done. I enjoyed my internship

Cons: job security
Great people to work with, and daily works are well managed. I have worked in this company for years and enjoy the time here.

Remote Work Experience
Financial Controls Manager - Sprint Vision Project (Current Employee), Plano, TXJanuary 9, 2014
Pros: balance work and family
Cons: lack opportunity of advancement
This is my first 100% remote work experience. The Financial Controls team consists of 22 people working out of their own home throughout the nation. It requires high self discipline and responsibility to get the job done. Each person logs into shared drive in the morning and run various financial reports, then go through the process with Accounting – more... team to pay the vendor.

Our team has weekly meeting and use Office Communicator to correspond with each other. The hardest part of the job is actually to take a break! I find myself working more than the regular shift hours just so that I can proof to my boss that I'm working hard! I really appreciate the convenience of this job because it has given me an opportunity to attend to my children more than other jobs. – less
