    Making order out of chaos

    NONE (Former Employee)
    Paramus, NJ

    ProsCollegiate environment and cohesive, forward-thinking co-workers. Very friendly and team-spirited on the surface. Excellent and realistic balance between work and life that is almost impossible to find in corporate culture.

    ConsEverything has a chain of command but no one seems to know what it is and it changes in midstream, just as you finally figure it out. Learning how to process a mailing took a conversation with four people who were all wrong. More time is wasted dealing with the simplest stuff that there can only be room for improvement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement has changed since my time, thankfully. But tasks that need to be completed do not need four signatures and five forms to just get them done. More thought has to go into a place to stop the buck instead of passing it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
