    Director

    Director (Current Employee) Parsippany, NJ

    Beware of sharing confidential information especially with Corporate HR who currently lacks leadership.

    Systems Specialist (Current Employee) Parsippany, NJ

    ProsThe bonus structure.
    New Office location.
    Discount on medication.

    ConsPeople know everyone's business, especially in the Parsipanny office. Beware of what you disclose to HR. The compliance hotline is everything but confidential. Its treated more like the latest gossip.
    Work life balance does not exist, and certain people have deals with their managers that are not equal across all employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen you eyes and look what is going on beneath you. Don't ignor the little people - they may have the answers you are looking for.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
