Big Black Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Big Black was an American punk rock band from Evanston, Illinois, active from 1981 to 1987. Founded by singer and guitarist Steve Albini, the band's initial lineup also included guitarist Santiago Durango and bassist Jeff Pezzati, both of Naked Raygun. In 1985, Pezzati was replaced by Dave Riley, who played on Big Black's two full-length studio albums, Atomizer (1986) and Songs About Fucking (1987).

ListyGuy posted a review about Big Black´s Atomizer album on "Rate your music" on July 30, 2019:

"A bit too hardcore for my taste, this one. I also don't really see the Husker Du comparisons, if I'm being honest. Sure, the two groups technically reside in the same genres, but their sounds aren't really all that similar. Big Black has a much more industrial sound than the more typical hard rock of Husker Du. And while I don't really like this album a lot, there are a couple of good tracks here: "Kerosene" is a great song. This cannot be denied."

Senior Accountant (Current Employee) says

"This company has zero training, a revolving door turnover of employees, horrible management and support for it’s employees. They promise much more than they deliver. Do yourself a favor and work someplace else! Management is made up of unappreciative and apathetic personnel with condescending personalities."

Tax Specialist (Former Employee) says

"One of the worst places I've ever worked. The irony is, it's a place that sells "accounting" services, yet they managed to mess up my paychecks tremendously. I remember one occasion where they messed up every single person's paycheck. The sales teams are lopsided. Some people (that have been there forever) are killing it and making amazing money, while others are starving and beating their brain against the wall making 150 dials a day and are still barely making enough money to survive. The manager I worked for while I was there would call at least 2-3 meetings a day, which made it hard to get anything done. Cons: Lots of them.. benefits are terrible, was never given a fair opportunity on a good team to make real money"

Billing Specialist (Current Employee) says

"The company promotes strong arm shady sales tactics. Company wide emails were sent out, and for a brief time it was actually in their job description for sales, to promote fear and greed when you sell. The CEO a few months back startled cutting the bottom 5 to 10 percent of performing employees. Anytime there is a lapse in production the people are publicly shamed, names mentioned in email for everyone to see. Cons: Shady tactics. Ceo is actually barred from owning a buisness that does cold calling sales."

Sales Representative (Former Employee) says

"top rep was asked to "test" leads and then when the leads were useless he didn't get paid a dime."

Sales Representative (Former Employee) says

"They purposely set you up for failure. If you ask for help, you get told to wait and then you get written up for the very thing you asked for help for. 2 days after I went to HR to talk to them about my issue, I was fired. Cons: Management"

Accountant (Current Employee) says

"There is no room for advancement at this company. They will lie to you on the interview, and tell you what you want to hear, just to get you to commit to working for them. The pay is not competitive. Management does not keep you in the loop regarding new opportunities, or anything going on at the company in general. Poor training, and a lot of your e-mails to management will completely be ignored. On top of that, there is no follow up when you schedule an appointment with HR. They will completely ignore you as well. Don't waste your time at this company."

Accountant (Current Employee) says

"They lie to you on the interview regarding everything from pay to room for advancement. My manager barely communicates with me so most days I have no clue about what’s going on. I’ve sent other members of the management team emails, only for them to get lost in a big black hole. There’s no room for growth, and pay is low. Please reconsider before agreeing to work for this terrible company. Cons: low pay; terrible managers"

Customer Service (Former Employee) says

"I worked in Customer Service, which itself is funny. I was given a band-aid, while management decided to hold the pistol. This company is all about money, they even just removed partial refunds after 30 days. Tracking calls was done on one of half a dozen excel spreadsheets, as there is no proper program in place. Cons: everything else"

Tax Accountant (Former Employee) says

"I don't know where to begin. I was deceived on my way in. Wasn't told I'd have to work 55 hours a week (including minimum 3 hours on a Saturday) during the tax season until the day I started; entitled to comp days in lieu of overtime pay, but that changed after the tax season and was now based on a "review"; promised training but never got it (but plenty of excuses); hired to be a tax accountant, but did mostly tax consultation (in a call center environment) for which there was no training or tax research database to refer to for tax questions nor access to IRS bulletin or authoritative literature; not trained to address random tax questions from around the country; consultation calls were scheduled for you ahead of time often back to back at thirty-minute intervals; never told bookkeeping was part of the job nor payroll; never provided any supplies since the only concern seemed to be fulfilling sales calls; asked to refer clients to bank for which the company has a partnership with no mention of additional compensation for the tax accountant turned sales person; had to work on tax returns in between consultation calls and follow-up with clients; low morale overall probably because everyone else had been duped too and now had no way out of the job; had seen five people resign and two released within three months; had not seen anyone hired during that time. The "perks" of free soda, treats and wearing jeans daily do not make up for being deceived and burned out in every way. Cons: Very deceptive from the beginning, overworked, pay is well below market rate, vacation sick and personal days are all treated as one and based on actual hours worked"

Senior Tax Accountant / Consultant / Preparer (Former Employee) says

"Great coworkers, but very poor company structure and management. This firm got too big, too quick and did not plan for it. Cons: Poor compensation, long hours, poor management"

Sales Associate (Former Employee) says

"If you can read a script and talk all day on phone without much time away from desk, then this may be for you...Also, if you are a man, more likely to be welcomed, it is a Boys Club. Management favors and gives leads to favorites, there is NO salary, benefits aren't good and training was poor. I did like speaking with the customers, interesting to hear about their business and help them with their accounting needs. If company made some changes, it wouldn't be a bad place to work, but training of management and employees isn't professional. Cons: management & bad benefits"

Sales Representative (Former Employee) says

"I did find that the initial training was good but felt that after that they did not spend enough time working with new employees. Work atmosphere is typical sales floor."

Sales Specialist (Former Employee) says

"They grew to quick, work you like a dog and expect you to stay late and work off the clock...You can make some money but if you have a family you want to spend time with, forget it! The leads are handed out unfairly....The management has been with the company for years and definitely needs a little help. They are way too complacent and the CEO in NY has no clue what is really going on. Cons: long hours/expensive benefits"

Intern (Former Employee) says

"You were kind of on your own when preparing tax returns, as the tax advisors were busy with their own clients during tax season, the busiest time of year. Should have been put on the job earlier to be taught what to do."
