    Amazing company with tons of potential

    Senior Executive (Former Employee)
    East Rutherford, NJ

    ProsTravel, challenges, a good place for employees that live to work and have no life outside of what they do for a living.

    ConsFinger pointing by senior execs. If something goes wrong, they attribute it to someone who had nothing to do with the problem to get the heat off themselves. Diversionary tactics to make them look like they are being proactive in protecting the company against lone individuals who are actually following the rules and have the company's best interest at heart. President is surrounded by ego maniacs who are more concerned with covering their collective asses than improving and protecting the organization. There are a few outstanding top execs. However a few rotten apples have been stinking up the place for a very long time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a long hard look at those around you, and regardless of personal relationships, clean your house for your future and the future growth of the company. Those that have done harm time and time again are not a good reflection on your ability to select top management. Hold close to the senior executives and managers that would bleed Hudson blue for you and who have worked their hearts out for you. Don't be so easily influenced by the folks closest to you as all many of them are concerned with is riding your coat tails wherever you take them. Weed out the overblown egos, while their numbers might look good, someone who actually cares about the company could produce a better bottom line and employees from the top down would be much happier working for your organization. Get rid of divisions, and function as one group. Note the "challenges and opportunities "you attributed to former employees continue today, and in future, get to the root before deciding to cast people out. Everyone that surrounds you should be as passionate and as committed as you are and should be equally as outstanding.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    After Swiss Dufry bought Hudson Group company become prospective for everybody who want to have an international career

    Operations (Current Employee)
    Jf Kennedy Ap, NY

    ProsHuge sales turnover force you to be highly efficient and gives you amazing work experience (if you are young employee and willing to climb up the ladder).

    ConsStill "manually" run operation with overpaid mid-management who is mostly on high School education level. Their limited management possibility slow up the whole development process and create high volume employee turnover which is HR nightmsre. Only great store performance, caused mostly with superb travel retail store positioning on the airports, and not existing real competition on US market, keep whole company going.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart to hire professional and experience people and pay them upon same pre-defined pay grades and results and not upon personal relationship with upper management to move to next, more corporate level of organization.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It has been interesting

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThey are located in airports so you are always meeting other people and I use this place as a way to network out of here since I'm in college right now.

    ConsManagement isn't vocal about your performance, if you're doing something wrong, they don't tell you and let it pile up so they can write you up and terminate you. I've seen it happen to several people. I'm still there though. There is really nowhere to advance so unless you want to be a sales associate at a gift shop for the rest of your life, i wouldn't work here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to communicate to their employees on their performance more. Coach your employees instead of terminating and writing them up all of the time. Treat each employee fairly.
