Employee Comments

  • Dec 16, 2014
    Current Employee in Rahway, New Jersey

    Recent changes with respect to national healthcare have eliminated co-pay in most insurance selections and raised the deductible. Employee bi weekly contributions have also increased.

    Former Employee in Columbus, Ohio

    Unlimited Sick Days, Unlimited Personal Days (with Manager approval).

  • Dec 5, 2014
    Former Enterprise Architect in Whitehouse, New Jersey

    Good compensation package; poor career stability; atrophying organization.

  • Dec 16, 2014

    Used to have really good benefits, but the company is now aiming to be in the 50% percentile instead of above it.
