Technical Support Representative (Current Employee), Manila – April 4, 2014
Pros: free drinks, lounge
Cons: night shifting
Working is fun especially if the people you work with are friendly and fun to be with as well. I have learned a lot of things with Convergys which used to be Stream Global. I've worked for 3 years now as a technical support professional assisting customers in troubleshooting their internet connection,software and hardware and as well as with billing – more... concerns. Every part of the job is enjoyable because there are a lot of supports whenever needed. – less

Pros: fun days
Cons: being in que most times
Was a fun place to work at with the people that worked there. Great benefits and had job security. Was able to have the time for family that was needed. Salary was great.

Credit Analyst (Customer Service Representative) (Former Employee), Makati, Philippines – February 21, 2014
Pros: friendly environment and free meals (occasional)
Cons: long hours of work
I used to work on a 4 by 11 schedule, meaning 11 hours a day and 4 times a week. Taking in calls and providing excellent customer satisfaction was my main job. A typical day at work was fun. I've learned a lot through communication and product training. I've learned how to deal with different types of clients and providing an effective resolution to – more... their problems. I could say it was the hardest part of the job. However, laughing and being connected with clients were the most enjoyable part. Aside from that, I got to meet a lot of good friends.
I've worked as a Customer Service Representative for three years and it was a good experience for me. I was so lucky to be part of this big company. – less
Technical Support/Billing and Sales (Former Employee), Kamloops, BC – February 20, 2014
Pros: excellent benefits
Cons: nagging time restraints
Great place to work with customers , time restraints and expectations of management was unrealistic, Learning new things daily and finding answers with confidence when one has no idea what they are doing. Challenging for researching answers and keeping customers happy while floor walkers would nag you on time , eleven minutes you fixed the issue reviewed – more... the customers account and sold them something new or scheduled a truck call for a broken internet. – less

Office mates are fun to be with. Management treats everyone fairly. Work is a bit challenging but a very fulfilling profession as you can help customers by simply conversing efficiently. With lots of patient and sincerity every end of the day is a great and wonderful experience indeed.
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee), Block 44 at Northgate Cyberzone, Muntinlupa City – December 9, 2013
Pros: rewards for recognition, socially events(which is free and you just need to attend) and meeting beautiful personalities.
Working in Convergys is going to a place where you help a person to use entirely his or her benefits at same time connect with the person that you talk to.
I learned that reaching your goals by working hard is not enough but you need to be socially alive in order to connect to others and have the best working environment possible.
Work Environment – more... is really splendid in a way that the company connects the employees through recognition and social events and gatherings. Making the bond of each employee in the company strong and united. That also goes with my co-workers.
The hardest part of the job is being mentally prepared to put your patience to the limits, or even beyond the limits because connecting to our customers is not as easy as it is at times but that is also the most best part of the job, When you were able to connect to the customer and resolve the issue and you feel that the customer is not only satisfied but appreciates the work that you have done. – less
Very happy workplace. People are very friendly. Office is like a second home to me.
CUSTOMER SERVICE SPECIALIST (Current Employee), Makati, Philippines – December 9, 2013
Pros: happy workplace. lots of incentives for performers.
Cons: metrics are almost unattainable. stress level is very high.
I have been working with Convergys for 5 years now and I can say, I've never seen a workplace as happy as it. People are very friendly. Theme based events and competitions are constantly being done on a monthly basis. No dull moments when you are in the office. It's the main reason why I am still working here until now. However, competition is very – more... tight and career growth and promotion is sometimes based on politics. The one with connections always get it. I still want to expand my horizon and become successful and be able to share my talents and skills with other people. Somewhere where I can be recognized based on my performance. Working with new people in a new environment is very fulfilling and challenging. I love challenges, because it keeps me going. – less
