    Gerald Hassell and his corporate cronies don't care

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsComrade on the ground level between employees. Lower level management flexible and accommodating to employee needs. Benefit and vacation time is above average.

    ConsLet's be real - the merit increases are terrible and a total disservice to the staff that represent the company.
    CEO Gerald Hassell and his sidekicks hoard the money and throw chicken scraps to the employees.
    Absolute disconnect from Corporate as to the needs and well being of the lower level staff.
    A lot of negativity and bad mouthing of the company on the floor due to corporate neglect and disrespect.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being so greedy to yourselves and shareholders and reward employees for their hard work. Merit increases should average 3-5%. Anything less is a total slap in the face for all those who work long hours and sacrifice on your behalf.
    Gerald Hassell, do all the employees a favor and stop sending corporate wide emails explaining company business and performance. It's all a sham and no one cares!
    Next time you send out an employee wide survey as real and sensitive questions that will engage employees at a serious level. Not the nonsense and typical questions that are framed so you hear what you want to hear.

    Advice to Shareholders: Fire Gerald Hassell and all of corporate staff. Demand employee merit increases and work climate are improved. Yeah! That'll ever happen?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Operations Accountant II (Current Employee)

    good for first job, and not for more than a year.

    Fund Accountant (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsFriendly people, you feel like a part of a global company- if that is something you are looking for.
    Its easy to make connections with different departments and that gives you possibility to move to a different group. Its a global company, so in theory its possible to move to Europe or Asia.

    ConsYou will not learn much, unless you are lucky enough to have a motivated supervisor.
    Promotions are rare, you will not be rewarded if you work harder than everybody in your group.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCross train people! Develop a sensible training program.

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

    Not a place for bright people

    Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsOk for starters to gain some experience.

    ConsNo opportunities for growth.
    Cost cutting created more work load for existing employees in all dept.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more ppl and value the ppl who work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very Dissatisfied

    Check Clerk (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsIf you want a job without a lot of downtown, this is the job for you. When it is slow, its very slow.

    ConsThe pay is very low and there is very little opportunity for advancemenet within the company. The hours are also not the best. I work 4pm-12am and there is no way I can change my shift.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive more opportunities for advancement and start your employees off with better salaries. $24,000 a year with a college degree is not acceptable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Ok place to work, but not much room for growth.

    Operations Accountant II (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsSteady hours of 10 - 6 creates good work life balance. Very easy take to take vacation when you need it. Laid back atmosphere.

    ConsNot much in the way of training. Lack of career development or meaninful promotion opportunities. Poor communication between management and staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOffer more meaningful training and career development. Improve communication from managment to staff. Offer more incentives and positive feedback to employees.
