We also believe that by giving our employees the opportunity to work from home, we are rewarded tenfold. We have been in business now for over 6 years and work with major corporations to be an extension of their call centers. We are A rated with the Better Business Bureau and have over 150 employees. Our company is owned and managed by a very successful advertising company called BirdDog Media. We are a family environment and take a lot of pride in what we do.
