VICKY STIDL is a heartless beast. I got very very sick for 3 months and was hospitalized a few times with pneumonia. She had the brass balls to call me when i could barely breathe and threaten me with being fired if i didn't show up for work the following week. I hauled my a*s in there with my nebulizer and was made to feel extremely inadaquet for having to use it. The supervisor of my team really took the cake and was the ultimate reason for me deciding to quit and find a better more worth while job. True story..i was in the "GO" department also known as GREAT OPTIONS and i was to sell these discount cards for home depot and restaurants etc. for 30 or 40 bucks a month and i had a caller who told me he was dying of cancer and didn't want to leave his family with any unnecessary bills. So i let him go and didn't push the rebuttals. My supervisor ranks me off the phones and tells me that i went about the call all wrong and i could've told him that having the discount cards after he died would've made life easier on his wife in the long run because she could still go out to eat at a cheaper price! After years of feeling dirty for working there and not being able to sleep i QUIT and i do not regret leaving that place AT ALL!

i too worked at SDP for a total of 3 years and what everyone is saying about the way employees are treated is absolutely true. I got my pay docked for going to the bathroom, for asking a manager a question and for other stupid reasons because they have their system set up so that you must select the clock out option in order to stop recieving incoming calls. so if you worked for 8 hours and took 5 ten minute pee breaks you just lost an hours pay on top of your break time as well. STUPID! The managers are always putting undue stress on employees about the room average as far as sales are concerned and where you measure up and then they threaten to fire you or put you on probation until you start getting more sales or "weebahs" as they call them.

Good for you, Silverknight..SDP management are heartless morons

AUTHOR: Workzombie - (U.S.A.)

I never had it out with Vicki, but I can say that I spent a good part of my three years working for that abuse-factory called SDP, standing up for my rights against management that were aggressive, threatening and loved to throw write ups and getting fired at me, if things weren't done their way. My least favorite sups were

Donna (home agent sup)
Rude, condescending, power-crazy and aggressive

Cheryl (boss of home agents)
She and Donna would gang up on you if you didn't be aggressive with customers.

Steve (home agent sup)
Power hungry egomaniac who loves to write people up and throw fits at those who stand up to him. He loves to make sure people know he's been there the longest. Big whoop.

All the good ones are gone now, I was a verifier and never followed rules but still got sales. The truth is, they won't fire people for minor stuff at all..they take pride in making people quit so they don't have to pay Unemployment. That job nearly sucked the life force out of me permanently, but a job at a moral, decent place with ethical sups brought me back to life again. Even got a letter from SDP asking for me to come back. HA! There's a special place in you-know-where for those sups who don't have consciences. I was nice to my customers, and ignored the cruelty of sups, or battled with them until they gave up. For those who work there, stand your ground, you have rights..they just don't want you to think that you do. Don't get brainwashed into thinking that you need to work yourself into the ground for them. They will do themselves in with their dishonesty, good places prosper while unethical types eventually crash and burn.

Someone said the CIO complained a lot about the old phones and systems - so he is gone. Employee turnover is high.

AUTHOR: Chrome - (U.S.A.)

Someone said the CIO Mr. Lord was complaining and battling with Mr. Scott Brady of the BradyBullyBunch. They said he spoke up about problems with the phones and systems and wanted a lot of money for new equipment. He also was hard to find sometimes and worked "from home" - I wonder what that means when someone says they are working from home - sounds like BS. I don't know about the marketing guy. Someone said it is getting harder and harder to sell the magazines. By the way I see that Ziff Davis filed for bankruptcy - they were owned by the same people that own special data. I am glad I am out of that crapbox.

Good for you Silverknight

AUTHOR: Kbobk14 - (U.S.A.)

I'm glad you quit. I worked there for 3 years as I previously stated. I would rather eat out of garbage cans than ever work there again. I wish that every employee working there would read all these comments and realize that they are true and just walk out and maybe this company would close and Bill Hood can stop counting his millions.

Congratulations Silverknight!! Can you give an update about some SDP stuff?

AUTHOR: AB - (U.S.A.)

Silverknight,
I strongly agree that VICKY STIDL is a heartless beast (as well as Robert Moravek and Kathy Margaratondo). I left a while ago and I am very glad to be gone from hell in Tampa. I could not stomach the way sdp/nme sells the magazines.

Do you know what happened to the CIO Mr. Thomas Lord?
Do you know what happened to the Marketing VP?
Is that guy Parish still there?

Best of Luck in your new job. I wish the good people there could find a better job.
